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.

Onslow (1242) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Pour from a 22oz bottle. Hazy blond brew with one finger of slightly creamy head. Modest aroma of wheat with slight citrus overtones. Mild flavor and body. Inoffensive, not much more to say.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2009
Draught. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head. Nose of wheat, yeast, fruits, little banana. Initial taste of mild wheat, citrus, banana. Watery body, belove average palate duration, too simple one dimensional not challenged wheat ale. Average head retention and light body. Overall not impressed.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
on tap. A mostly clear yellow hue with a nice white head that had little retention. Aroma was of citrus, spicy and a slight banana note. Flavor was light but well balanced between fruity malt notes and bread notes. Finish was smooth. Carbonation was a little elevated but did not negatively effect the beer.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is wheat, lemons, a little grassy, and a light hoppiness. Appearance is a very clear yellow pour with a medium sized white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste is acidic, with lemon citrus coming to the forefront, some wheat textures intermingled, and a bit of that chewing gum flavor. Palate is really easy drinking, quite carbonated on the tongue, and the aftertaste has a wheat note to it. Overall, On a hot summer day this would be pretty key, but as a wheat overall I think this one is lacking in some categories. Cheers!
