COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

glennmastrange (2652) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap. Light grain and herbs for the malt and hops, with some pear and wood notes in the background. Head is small, frothy white with thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, which eventually clears, golden/yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic. Palate is light, watery and has a soft carbonation. Not bad but nothing outstanding about this Wheat Ale.

Vir4030 (598) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Beautiful pour of orange fog with a nice foamy head that lasts. Smells light and a hint of citrus. Taste is real smooth and light, but not a lot there.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2010
20100606 tap at O’Hare. Pale golden, medium haze, lasting white froth. Nicer looking than your standard American Wheat. Aroma is mildly cascade and light lemony biscuit. Just fine stuff, nicely refreshing. Lingering c-hop bitterness and perfumes.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle. Aroma has notes of citrus and banana. Pale yellow clear hue with an average white foamy head that diminished and left little lace. Flavor is sweet and mild then fades fast. Palate is very light bodied and watery with decent carbonation. Overall it tasted more like a macro light beer with some citrus than a craft brewed wheat ale. Refreshing though.

GardenGabe (137) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Had this on tap. Clear with a medium head. Smells of grass, citrus and bannana. Taste crisp mildly sweet. Grain and grass come through on chewing. Medium carbonation which a decent mouth feel. A good example of wheat.

By far my favorite beer. Nice head. Hazy/cloudy appearance, golden. Perfect amount of sweet/bitter.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
On tap at their Clybourne brewpub. A fairly clearn, yellow-gold body with a bleached two inch head in the weizen glass. The aroma is heavily subdued and I can barely smell a thing. An incredibly light, near watery mouthfeel with frothy footing that brings her to light-medium body. The front is smooth, with a tide of carbonation rising on the mid-back end of the palate, tied to a lemony citrus bite that lingers past the fall of the bitterness. A nice little wheat beer--unimpressive but respectable in its balance. The story here lies in the bite mid-end.

RobertDale (5334) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 23, 2010
On tap at brewery near Wrigley. Slightly hazy golden yellow. White smallish creamy head. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Decent session beer.

Slipstream (2444) - USA - MAY 22, 2010
On tap at Rattle’n’Hum. Medium lite cereal grain flavor. A bit malty and toast-like. Lite on the hops.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle. Hazy light yellow with white head. Fruity, citrus with some malt. Quite bland but not bad. A bit boring perhaps.
