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.

Aroma: Faint yeast mustiness, not much going on here. Appearance: Pale gold, hazy with visibly suspended sediment. No head, only some white bubbles. Flavor: Lemon, wheat, and dust. No off flavors, but somewhat boring. Palate: Clean, crisp, and drinkable.

Nothing impressive. All my friends recommended it so I tried it and I don’t think that is is worth the hype.

Not much here at all. I could drink it so it wasn’t a total bomb. Light hazy color. Fairly bland taste.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy golden with a basically absent head. Light yeasty aroma. Light-bodied with slightly sweet malts and a wee fruitiness. No bitterness. Very thin and a poor excuse for a beer. 190908

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Citrus, spice and wheat aroma wafts over the foamy white head and cloudy straw color of this unfiltered wheat ale. Mouthfeel is very creamy with clove, wheat and citrus flavors finsihing with a slighty hoppy aftertaste. Very refreshing and pairs well with light snacks and/or a picnic food.

Cloudy golden with tiny white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with fruity and wheat notes. Flavour likewise with hints of spice. Finishing sweet.

Very light wheat beer. Not a whole lot of flavor, very clear. Could drink a lot of this during a hot day. Refreshing beer.
