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.

Iím kind of surprised the ratings are so low on this. Iím not a big fan of wheat ales by any means but this one seemed to have a few things going for it that others in they style have failed for me. For one thing the pour was nice with a large white head that actually lasted for once, nice lacing on the glass. The aroma while light of hay and straw also provided a slight fruity sweetness that was inviting. The taste is light and crisp in the mouth with yeast and wheat combining for a light doughy taste, really it was almost pastry-like due to the subtle fruity sweetness this beer provides. Lastly, the bitch actually had some hops to speak of and left you with a decent finish considering the style. Very well blanced in my opinion between the wheat and yeast you would expect, as well as a touch of fruit and hops. Not bad and very refreshing to boot. This one is underrated if you ask me.

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.

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.
