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.

Cask at American beer fest White Horse. Cloudy yellow ale with medium head. Citrus, wheat summer beer. Rather bland beer lacking in complexity.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Pale yellow with a thin white film. Faint citrus and yeast, some boring malt, lots of pondwater. Bloody hell. Rank. As the commercial deScription says, "not like any other Goose Island beer". Most of them are decent, some superb. This however was not either.

Bottle 12 oz. Pours bright yellow, clear, little sediment. Bright white glistening head, 1.5 inches. Beautiful appearance, but short longevity and little lacing. Light aroma, lemon and citrus, similar taste. Thin for a wheat ale.

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.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
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.

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.

bmk (2) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2009 does not count
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.
