2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Odd label on this 12 oz brown bottle. Pour is hazy like a wheat but not real cloudy. Lighter yellow vanilla color comparable to many american wheats. Slightly tart and somewhat spicy. Less carbonation than I like in a wheat, usually you think of wheats as being more of a smooth champagne tingle. It’s probably because it’s urban and not rural. Look out, I am torrified buy the wheat. OK for a wheat and as expected compared to other american wheats. Cannot hold a candle to Marzoni’s 22 or Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen. On par with Hopsun and Witsun. Better than JW dundee’s american wheat version.

Pale with white thin head. Light wheat flavor. A wheat beer for the ’Miller Light’ crowd.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 An old "standard" in the Chicago area, this unobtrusive American wheat is a solid performer, but without too many bells and whistles. Easy drinking with a balanced profile, 312 pours a cloudy maize and sports a medium sized, quickly dissipating white head. Lacing is minute. The nose shows a bit of resiny hop character and the body is drying, with a lite citrusy finish. A good wheat beer for non-wheat beer drinkers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Not very much on the nose. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, lemon, and some spices. Flavor is a little stronger then the nose but it dies pretty quickly without much of a lingering flavor. Flavor is mostly wheat and a little bit of citrus. Not the best american wheat I’ve ever had.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Chalky unimpressive wheat. Small indications of must on the nose and very dry, too dry, palate on this beer make it nearly unenjoyable. Goose Island makes good beer -- but this is not one of them -- bland.

Matte gold color, flowery and citrus aroma. Bready, citrus, and mild flavor. Pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a medium white head. weak aroma of wheat, lemon and doughbread. Taste is wheaty with a small lemon punch to it and a slightly sweet finish. Bland and not much of anything here.
