COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to honor the brave souls who kept our brew pub open in the early 90’s while wrecking balls tore down the mall around us. Dry and smooth, with a grassy, citrus aroma and a honey malt middle.

Bright straw body with moderate carbonation and a tall, white bubbly head. Nose is fruity with some barnyard characteristics. Sweet candied malt backbone. Bananas, yeast, esters . . . the usual suspects. A little thin and oily. Wheat and orange citrus. Nothing offensive but not stellar in any way.

Dense foamy white head. Leaves lacy head behind in the glass after each sip. Citrus and grassy flavors with some hoppiness. Definite Belgian yeast aroma and flavor, with a slight bit of herby bitterness.Another good beer from Goose Island.

Very light beer, almost transparent. Belgian style, smells of yeast, ripe bananas, orange peel, cloves and maybe som wheatmalt. Fine subdued bitterness, which stands well with the sweetness. Long aftertaste.

It pours a clear light gold with a white head but not much there and no very good lacing. The aroma is hops with flowers. The taste is ok, nothing special to make you want to look for it. Its light and sweet to start slight bitter finish. Mouhthfeel is ok, you can drink a lot of this.
