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.

transparent yellow beer that is overly carbíd. aroma is practically nil, very neutral with a touch of malt sweetness. flavor is along the same lines and lacking in complexities. refreshing or thirst quenching are not valid defenses for this beer in my eyes.

Lubiere (11014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
A lightlly hazed blonde with a thick white head. In aroma, a lightly chalky malt, grainy, wheaty with light berry notes. In mouth, a fresh grainy ale with light berries, light and refreshing. On tap at Clybourn, May 17 2009.

650 ml. bottle. Shared with Marilyn. Pours a thin head, with attractive lacing, over a pale yellow (SRM 5) body......nose of light bread, light malt.....taste is dry throughout, light wheaty taste, light yeast, minimal spice.....mouth feel is light. Light , minimal spice, refreshing but not a great wheat ale.

BiddleBrau (1019) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Golden, clear with nice white head. Faint orange citrus aroma. Light and flat on the palate, slightly creamy, light grain flavor. For a lighter beer this has a full feel on the tongue. On tap at Dive 96

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle: Hazy light golden with a dense white film of head. Fresh wheaty aroma with lots of grassy notes- crackery dry wheat and grassy hops. Thin and a bit fizzy in texture- pale bread crust flavor in the background with a light watery wheat character. Not much depth or bitterness with a straw note. Feels macro-ish, but with no major flaws or off flavors.
