I tried the Bearded Lady at the Pie Factory in Florence, Alabama. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that left some lace. The scent had hints of lemon. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was some biscuit and lemon presence. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer.

A - cloudy murky faint melted butter yellow. Billowy foamy bubble bath head. 3.25

S - honey and flour. Very weak. 2.5

T - too caustic and hoppy. No maltyness. 2.75

M - slightly fizzy hoppy after burn but otherwise watery. 3

D - overall a disappointment. Weak and watery with only occasional refreshing moments. Not bad, just unremarkable in any way. 3.

Another Good People masterpiece. A solid hops edge masks somewhat the more subtle yet still enjoyable wheat and malt undertones. Very refreshing, highly recommended.

Quite sessionable with a sturdy hop-profile. While not too hoppy in-and-of itself, I felt that the hoppiness did overpower the wheat flavors from the malt.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky straw color with a small white head. The aroma is full of wheat and malt. The taste is bready and has a nice malt flavor. Overall, an excellent American Wheat Ale.
