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.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a foamy head. You know you’re off to a bad start when a beer looks EXACTLY like your urine. Sweet wheaty aroma with some floral and lemony notes. Slightly sweet wheaty malt with a lemony flavor that borders on an annoying sourness. Really bad acidic finish and weird metallic aftertaste. Thin bodied. I bought this with a misplaced reliance on the prestige of the G.I. brand. Waste of money.

Pretty terrible. Maybe I’m just not crazy about wheat ales, but this one sucked. Sour and boring.

Pours a hazy white yellow with a two finger creamy white head. The nose is wheaty, some lemongrass, a little grainy. The flavor is thin and grainy, some lemongrass, one dimensional. Thin mouthfeel. Not too great.

Great summer beer! Smooth with just the right bite at the end, more than a few is not a problem!

A fried brought this to a surprise party at our house. Warn and muggy day fit this well. More flavor than the standard beers that people bring over, a hint of citrus and spice, but not enough character to drink again. Might be a nice step for someone into the WWoCB (wonderful world of craft beers).

Bottle. This is very light. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is kind of plain just some very mild citrus. Flavor isn’t bland but it is rather boring. Smooth and drinkable but I doubt I’ll drink it again.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 On tap in Chicago (many places). Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is tons of wheat. The taste was a strong wheat presence with some citrus, maybe even pineapple. Pretty good.

Had on tap. Pours light golden with white head. Aroma is wheat and some light spices. Flavor is light and bland with hints of wheat, spices and a touch of light fruit. Good beer for a nice hot day and that is about it.

Pours a light hazy gold. The aroma is wheat and maybe some spicy citrus. The taste is American wheat and really not much more.
