little lemon on nose, appearence is nice and somewhat hazy, flavor is hopped up more than most hefes(seems to be a micro trend in wheats), but that is one of goose’s traits, good summer beer

On tap at Gino’s East Pizza.
Pours a hazy wheat looking golden yellow. Lighter looking than most wheats though. Small foamy white head that goes away fast. Not a very strong aroma, but some wheat and lemon to it. Not too complex. Pretty wheaty taste with some citrus lemons and a little bit grainy. Overall, a bad example of what Goose Island is to me. I love this brewery, but this beer is just not that good. I understand and support the whole mass producing crappy beer thing to make money, but it doesnt make me feel any better about this beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a foamy head. You know you’re off to a bad start when a beer looks EXACTLY like your urine. Sweet wheaty aroma with some floral and lemony notes. Slightly sweet wheaty malt with a lemony flavor that borders on an annoying sourness. Really bad acidic finish and weird metallic aftertaste. Thin bodied. I bought this with a misplaced reliance on the prestige of the G.I. brand. Waste of money.

Pretty terrible. Maybe I’m just not crazy about wheat ales, but this one sucked. Sour and boring.

Pours a hazy white yellow with a two finger creamy white head. The nose is wheaty, some lemongrass, a little grainy. The flavor is thin and grainy, some lemongrass, one dimensional. Thin mouthfeel. Not too great.

Great summer beer! Smooth with just the right bite at the end, more than a few is not a problem!

A fried brought this to a surprise party at our house. Warn and muggy day fit this well. More flavor than the standard beers that people bring over, a hint of citrus and spice, but not enough character to drink again. Might be a nice step for someone into the WWoCB (wonderful world of craft beers).
