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.

Draught. A kind of light American wheat. Not much hefeweizen character. Refreshing, but boring.

GTown (127) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours a moderately hazy-yellow with minimal head. Wheat and spices are weak. Not even close to Oberon or Whitsun. A disappointment from an otherwise fine brewery.

Little aroma with decent color, this American Wheat is a good ’gateway’ beer, owing to the popularity of Goose Island in the US. Not a bad interpretation of the style...the only problem is, this style is just lacking compared to the German and Belgian Wheats it’s derived from.

Pours gold with white head. Doesn’t taste as ";wheatish"; as I anticipated. Decent beer, sort of like a pilsner to me.

IPAaLLtHEwAY (142) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Pours golden yellow with a thick cloudy appearance and a small white head. The aroma is very citrusy, whearas the flavor is of wheat and yeast and hops. Not the best goose island, but very refreshing.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. This was served with a lemon, which obscured the aroma somewhat, I just got some light fruits and faint spices. Flavor predominantly of wheat, light fruits, flour, pizza dough. I found this quite tasty. Perhaps this must be had super super fresh to be enjoyable. Contrary to what the ratings of this beer suggest, I really liked this wheat ale.

bigtaster (551) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours hazy pale lemon yellow with white head. Aroma of strong citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is a bland wheat with a smidgen of citrus and yeast. The flavor is dominated by carbonation. Reminds me too much of the typical American macro brew.

Eh. Itís drinkable, fairly refreshing, but nothing to it really. A bit of wheat flavor but no real wheat or yeast character.
