  • This cannot be Nights of Gladness, it has yellow beards the comment says NoG has Purple beards -- RozJenkins - 2015-06-02
  • Description states "purple beard, tipped mustard"; base of beard is purple, amount of mustard tipping apparently varies, which makes some beards look yellow. -- BetsyHiggins - 2015-06-03
