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.

Never been a fan of the style, they always taste amd smell like sweat to me. Not too bad, and more than once it has been the best option at a 7-11 or dive bar. Local pride is the main reason to drink this. I prefer the barley when I am drinking lighter stuff.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours very light hazy yellow with a small white head. Very pale color. Aroma is that normal American Wheat aroma - wheat, grains, flour, a little bit of rice or something. A tiny bit of tartness or citrus comes out in the aroma but not much. Taste is very watery, smooth, a little grainy with a non-existant finish. Very light beer here. While this is not a category of beers I like very much this one does not stand out at all.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Pale straw with a short living, white foam. Very bland, unappealing and boring.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2008
12oz bottle: Pours a hazy yellow with a soft cap that fades quickly. The nose is weak, some bubble gum esthers if you reallly try. The body was about the same for me - a bit hoppy with a nice balance of vanilla and banana, but nothing spectacular. Tastes like an American Wheat yeast strain and lower alcohol. I could drink quite a few on a hot day, but the style just seems to be a Hefe-light kind of approach.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Sampled via 12-oz bottle at 10th Annual Ice Cold Beer Festival in Minocqua, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear pale light straw brew with a thick white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of light mulit-grain malt, some yeast, and citrus zest. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of light multi-grain malt with wheat, yeast and a touch of citrus zest. Finish is semi-dry with a lemon zest aftertaste.

bhensonb (10938) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Slightly hazy golden color with a decent white head. Medium bodied with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is wheat with citrus. Flavor fades rapidly, and the finish is a little grain and a touch of citrus that persists.

10-11-07 bottle
Hazy yellow golden in color with light short-lived head. Big heavy wheat aroma - nice malt and hops mixture. A bit watery overall and weak on the palate. Overly light in flavor and palate for my liking. Quite thin. Taste is somewhat lemony.

ebarnes (239) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a white fluffy head. Clean, slightly fruity aroma. Taste is very light. Be good after cutting the grass in the summer.
