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.

Average beer weak taste over all. still far better then a normal commercial American beer such as Bud or Miller. Golden in color decent balance, weak head that leaves early on.

Unique69crazy (120) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2008
A rather bland drink. It has a decent citrus aroma with not much left to the imagination. A clear tan/orange color with a light taste. A typical wheat ale with no "WOW". Probably wonít buy again.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2008 Bottle pours a whiter shade of pale with a decent head that leaves some lace. The aroma is light banana clove and some floral hops going on. The flavor is pretty bland, with a clovy finish and some yeast flavor. The palate is nice and refreshing. Overall, meh.

One of my favorite Goose Island brews. Thick, golden body and a sweet, fruity aroma traditional of wheat beers. Great unfiltered blend that lingers.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2008
another great summertime brew. Pours a bright, but cloudy golden colour with a medium sized white head. Tastey, lively fruit, citrusy character and soft, creamy wheat flavors throughout this beer.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 18, 2008
Poured a surprisingly clear pale gold color. For all the chest beating they do in their description about how itís "unfiltered, hazy & cloudy" it really wasnít all that much so. The aroma was mild citrus, over light barley and wheat. Overall aroma was restrained, but not unpleasant. The flavor was a nice blend of light citrus with some nice wheat and hops that provided a nice finish. Decent mouthfeel. Refreshing and easy to drink. Not bad.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
Draught at Cabooses, Geneva, Illinois. I think this may have been the only microbeer available at this train station bar. It was served way too cold and had barely any aroma. However, when faced with Budweiser and Miller Lite, this is miles ahead.
