served on-tap @ Alcove, Tuscaloosa, AL, into a mason jar

Pours a hazy yellow color. It practically glows neon when sunlight hits the glass. 1.5 fingers of fine white head sits on top of this pour. Looks nice.

My initial impression of the nose is that it smells much hoppier than the average American Pale Wheat. There's a bitter, herbal aroma here, as well as more of a lemony citrus tone. It came across like a Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat only with more bittering hops. But as the beer warmed up a bit it became evident that there was a plastic aroma that was providing a lot of the bitter, astringent quality. I don't know if Good People uses a Belgian yeast strain in this beer, but that's about the only way I can figure that there'd be a heavy plastic element to the aroma. Unless it's a problem with the taplines.

That plastic component is definitely there on the palate. It's not the strongest flavor here. There's a significant amount of wheat breadiness to this beer, backed up by a very subtle tartness on the midpalate. There's a fair amount of green hops and lemon essence too. The finish is very bready, but also very much like a PVC pipe. That plastic flavor lingers the longest.

The body here is pretty full for the style, more prickly with bubbles than smooth. It's refreshing and it makes sense to me with the bready flavor profile. Overall, this is not among my favorite wheat beers. If the plastic flavor is from the taplines and not the yeast strain, then I will revisit this review.

A good sessionable wheat beer. Perfect for a footbal game which hey Im watching. Very clear appearance pale gold. There is a little more bitterness from the hops in this wheat. Pretty smooth with a medium mouth feel. Not overly complex just a nice wheat beer. Perfect for summer. Good job from the people at Good people.
