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.

Nice wheat ale. I was expecting a little more from this brewery but good nonetheless. Aroma was average. Could pick up some light yeast and wheat. Pour was beautiful. I love unfiltered wheat beers. A swirling hazy gold with a one finger white head. Taste was a little bland. Wheat and yeast with light malt but the flavor disappeared after the swallow. Great lawnmower beer.

It was a very light beer, and its body was very clear with a hint of a yellow tint. Not my first pick.

Bottle. Pours clearer than one expects, slightly hazy golden with decent white head that reduces quickly. Aroma and taste are mild, wheat, citrus with bready, dry finish. A little thin, and not one of the best Goose Island brews. Still, makes a great session brew.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a straw semi-hazy color. White head with low retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, mild citrus and watermelon. The taste is very similar with a dry finish. Iím a bit confused as this is supposed to be unfiltered but is actually quite bright. A very drinkable brew, almost session like.

Light wheat beer. Fairly hazy, slightly hoppy. Medium head disappears quickly.

Pretty weak overall with a watery taste. Average palate with a wheat/citrus feel. Head was virtually non-existent.

An average American wheat ale. Watery tasting with an average palate. I need to try this again as Iíve recently become more interested in wheat ales and some of the Goose Island Iíve had over the past 6 months has actually been pretty good.

BOBANDDOUG (61) - Belleville, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2008
On tap, poured into a iced glass, with 2 large lemons by a goofy blonde barmaid. Drank the 1st down, then asked for one in a non-chilled glass, no fruit. 2 finger head, fades fast. Aroma: not much. Taste: Disappoining. VERY light, some corn, some light citrus. Not much going on there. Easy to drink, I may try it again as the weather gets warm. Actually would rather have a Budweiser, than this.

Pours a straw color with a small, frothy head. Aromas are bready with some sour mash notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Tastes the same as it smells.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 decent wheat beer by Goose Island. lemon flavor and bitter. Semi-cloudy and kind of generic compared to other goose island beers. not that impressed
