Pours a moderately hazy-yellow with minimal head. Wheat and spices are weak. Not even close to Oberon or Whitsun. A disappointment from an otherwise fine brewery.

Little aroma with decent color, this American Wheat is a good ’gateway’ beer, owing to the popularity of Goose Island in the US.
Not a bad interpretation of the style...the only problem is, this style is just lacking compared to the German and Belgian Wheats it’s derived from.

Pours gold with white head. Doesn’t taste as "wheatish" as I anticipated. Decent beer, sort of like a pilsner to me.

Pours golden yellow with a thick cloudy appearance and a small white head. The aroma is very citrusy, whearas the flavor is of wheat and yeast and hops. Not the best goose island, but very refreshing.

On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. This was served with a lemon, which obscured the aroma somewhat, I just got some light fruits and faint spices. Flavor predominantly of wheat, light fruits, flour, pizza dough. I found this quite tasty. Perhaps this must be had super super fresh to be enjoyable. Contrary to what the ratings of this beer suggest, I really liked this wheat ale.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy pale lemon yellow with white head. Aroma of strong citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is a bland wheat with a smidgen of citrus and yeast. The flavor is dominated by carbonation. Reminds me too much of the typical American macro brew.

Eh. Itís drinkable, fairly refreshing, but nothing to it really. A bit of wheat flavor but no real wheat or yeast character.

This was my firsting whack at a Goose Island product. Hopefully the rest of their line will turn out to be better than this one. Not a bad tasting beer but really no outstanding qualiities. Pretty much an average wheat, definitely not worth the premium price you pay for it.

Missed this one. This has to be the most popular micro brew in chicago. Its nice and refreshing on a summer day and better than any macro brews here. So why not. Pours cloudy hazy yellow some head, an unfiltered look. Smell is of spice and wheat. Taste is of a faint watered down citrus/malts/wheat/spices and lots and lots of water. Finish is lifeless. Overall an average wheat.
