2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap. Slightly cloudy yellow with a small white head doesnít retain very well. Light nose of wheat, yeast, and very slight hops. Taste is also light and resembles a yeasty pale lager. Light carbonation and decent moutfeel. Easy drinker, but not great.

Heavier beer. Smooth but also has a bitter taste. Itís fizzy but not in a bad way. Citrusy and good for casual drinking.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A cloudy pale yellow beer with a decent white that manages to leave some good lacing. Sweet aroma of wheat, apricot and oranges. So far the beer gushes cool refreshing summer beer. Light citrus flavor and wheat. Mild carbonation hits the tongue and the beer finishes with a light citrusy wheat bite at the end. There is not much to this beer but it is easily drinkable and enjoyable.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A really bad example of a wheat ale...I had no clue the style before drinking and then thought it was a pale lager. Piss colored but at least had some lacing. Aroma was yeasty, skunky and lemony...it was ok. Flavor was slightly bitter but like in a bud way...fizzy, thin and just overall bad on the palate but not the worst.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lemon and slightly dusty aroma, with a a thin yellow appearance. Mouth feel is very thin. Has a decent burst of fruity flavor at first, but dissipates very quickly with no lasting finish. Disappointingly one-note in flavor with little complexity.

An ok effort. Just letting it sit for a few minutes and warm up made it much worse. All of a sudden got a little woddy flavor to it and then dissipated. For Goose Island, Iím let down.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. Aroma of wheat with a hint of vanilla and soap. A very light flavored beer with hints of yeast. Not really that exciting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Shortyís. This central Chicago themed brew is advertised as "President Obamaís favorite beer." Pour is a transparent but slightly hazed golden color. Taste is lager with subtle hop and wheat. Thin on the body. Refreshing and enjoyable but someone needs too tell Mr. President, there are a lot better beers out there..

Nice cloudy golden body with a thin white head, this wheat has a clean yet more fulsome body, bit of lemon zest and banana, than many. Very refreshing on a mild day.

bottle from flssmrbrewalum... bottled 11/25/08
pours a hazy lemonade color with a vibrant white head and some sporadic spotty lacing.
the nose is dusty... notes of earthy almost savory yeast, hay, lemon and rust.
the flavor profile is pretty much the same with the addition of banana and red apples in the aftertaste.
thin to medium bodied with a prickly mouth feel. refreshing pool side beer...6/3/6/3/14/3.2
