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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draught @ Fire Rock Grille in Des Moines:   Pale straw, faint haze, fairly clear otherwise, thin white sudsy head, dies quickly leaving sparce lacing.   Carbonation seems nil.   Weak straw and grass nose.   Wheat aspect is faint.   I was told this was a light wheat ale?   Sure seems that way.   Rather grassy on the tongue but also wheaty.   Faint mealiness, but its not bad.   Seems like a watered down American Wheat, which probably what they were going for.   Not bad, good on a hot day.   Problem being its not hot, but may 28F.   Anyways, a little corny on the backside, in addition to the straw and grass.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Certainly not like a regular wheat.   Meh...

weihenweizen (2264) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Refrigerated bottle poured into a glass. It pours a hazy yellow with little head and some lacing. The taste is musty yeasty wheat and sour spicy hops. Not very good.

AskForJenny (1037) - Ontario, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2009
12oz - Cloudy straw color, no head but some lace. Orange and bread dough on nose. Doughy yeast is the main flavor, but overall this is very mild. Not bad, just unimpressive.

Bottled. Poured a faintly cloudy yellow with a very small fizzy head. Sort of like a bland wheat with a very clean finish. Sessionable. if youíre into that kin of thing.

all the common characteristics of a wheat beer with a great flavor - I like it with a lemon - lighter than some wheat beers

ben4321 (4826) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from jcos, 11/12/09

Aroma: It has an aroma of citrus, wheat, spice, and honey
Appearance: Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a bubbly white head
Flavor: Taste is similar to the nose, spice, wheat, lemon, and honey
Palate: It has an unexciting mouthfeel with a light amount of body
Overall Impression: Not the most exciting beer. It isnít bad, but it just isnít really memorable or exciting. I really donít have to say much more on this beer, it is what one might expect.

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Light lemony haze with a cute white foam. Light honey aroma. Light honeyed malt flavours Hints of nutmeg and very little hop. Smooth and drinkable as hell.
