COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle. Yellow hazy pour with lots of wheat in the nose, some spiciness and malt in the flavor but wheat is the domineering character here. Nothing special.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Draft… DLD’08… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. Lots of citrus and pale grains in the aroma. Light to medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Sweet (too sweet) with reserved citrus. Finishes sweet and grainy.

dutch23mp (285) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2008
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 won’t buy again.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, 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.

HopZettz (12) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2008
One of my favorite Goose Island brews. Thick, golden body and a sweet, fruity aroma traditional of wheat beers. Great unfiltered blend that lingers.

Pretty bland generic beer, on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. Not too bad easy to drink. Wouldn’t buy again
