Draft. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Spicy aroma with lots of citrisy flavor. Fizzy. Not that bad.

It looks a bit cloudy. I donít smell much of the aroma. It tastes spicy, with a bit of the bitterness but has a sweet after taste.

This was not one of those dry or bitter wheat ales. This beer was really smooth with a bit of lemon flavor. It has nothing particularly special about it, but it is consistent. I must disagree with others and say that I enjoyed this brew.

12oz bottle. Aroma: Sour wheat, lemon, light malt. Boring. Appearance: Light orange in color and hazy. White head was full and foamy with decent retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lightly sour wheat, some light malt and yeast, lemon. Spritzy finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied and a little watery. Medium carbonation. Overall: Dull and boring. Nothing that would make me want to order another.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 I love this stuff! One of my favorite wheat beers. Itís got a lemony wheaty thing going on.....light, crisp and refreshing. Not much complexity, but very flavorful...it really hits the spot.

Bottle. Hazy yellow body. Smells of wheat. Flavor was wheat and sweet, not much complexity. Felt fine in the mouth. Nothing exceptional but could be okay for summer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint - Aroma of wheat, malt and a touch of hops. Pours hazy gold with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor is a boring match to aroma. Palate is thin. I suppose if I was eating hot wings this might be a good beer. Left to itís own devices, itís pretty boring.

Doughy, lemony aroma. Slightly cloudy, gold, frothy thin head. Moderate hops, a bit cereal. Medium to medium light mouth. Somewhat buttery.

I always expect Goose Island beers to be better than they are, and I am always disappointed. I got a pint of this at Prarie Moon in Evanston and tossed half of it. Beer is a pale yellow with a small head, only slightly hazy. Nose of lemon and sour malt. Taste of lemon, none of the complexity often present in a wheat beer. Mostly pretty boring, probably fine after mowing the lawn or something. Average for a wheat, at best.

Not a bad beer, very light and refreshing, nothing extraordinary about it though. Some friends highly recommended it, but I think their recommendation was a bit over-rated.
