COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, itís a beer thatís densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We donít filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thatís how you know itís unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. Itís not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youíd expect.

Ingevara (889) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2010
Barely no head. Light in color. Smell and flavor like a pear soda. Difficult to detect any hops, the bitterness is just symbolic. Not much of a beer. Drink something else.

Pours hazy straw pale with a small head that quickly diminishes. Nose is fruity with currant in background. Flavor is a bit cidery with a dry bitter finish. Not so much of a wheat ale but still drinkable.
