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.

12oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a white fluffy head. Clean, slightly fruity aroma. Taste is very light. Be good after cutting the grass in the summer.

There is a lot of hype about this beer, since Iím next to the 312 area code, but there isnít too much to back it up for me. It is slightly too light, slightly too muddled, slightly complex and not much else. I guess it has a pleasant taste and is easy to drink, in the summer that is.

Draft. Hazy pale yellow with a white head. Lemony citrus aromas. Wheat spiciness in the flavor with hints of lemons. A bit thinner than I expected.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Pours a hazy yellow unfiltered mess. Poured a decent head that dissipates. Smells citrusy, hoppy, and doughy. Tastes alot like its smell. Decent hop character for a wheat beer, but I kept getting a bready/doughy finish. Maybe it was something else that feels familiar but I canít put my finger on. A beer I used to drink alot, but generally pass over for the Honkerís now.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium frothy head. The aroma is sweet light malt and some citrus. The flavor is yeasty with light citrus, and light sweet malts. A slight touch of bitterness. A touch on the watery side.

From a bottle. I thought this beer was a light wheat. Goes down easy, well balanced. Just a little sweat and with hints of lemon.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007
Draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location
Cloudy blond color. Aroma of sugar and lemon zest. Tastes more like a Lager than a wheat, breadish. The final is quite crispy. Refreshing.
