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.

From tap in a local Chicago bar. Off aroma but ok wheatbear taste. Not my favourite style and this one is drinkable.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a pale, orange gold color with a large white head. No good aroma or taste to note. Notes of orange and bread, but mild and light. A very light tasting wheat ale. Very thin palate

BiddleBrau (1047) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Golden, clear with nice white head. Faint orange citrus aroma. Light and flat on the palate, slightly creamy, light grain flavor. For a lighter beer this has a full feel on the tongue. On tap at Dive 96

PilsnerPeter (3030) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle: Hazy light golden with a dense white film of head. Fresh wheaty aroma with lots of grassy notes- crackery dry wheat and grassy hops. Thin and a bit fizzy in texture- pale bread crust flavor in the background with a light watery wheat character. Not much depth or bitterness with a straw note. Feels macro-ish, but with no major flaws or off flavors.

mnovacanes (61) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2009
Appearance: light golden yellow; mild haze; starts with big fluffy white head, but dissipates quicker than it should Aroma: light wheat character; slight malt presence; very marginal hop presence by way of citrus Flavor: moderate, refreshing wheat; very light malt sweetness faint in the background; slightly crisp on an above-average finish Mouthfeel: medium-light body; medium-high carbonation Overall: not an attention grabber, but within the wheat category, this is definitely better than a "2.77" beer

tekhna (118) - California, USA - APR 17, 2009
Overall, not a bad beer. I donít tend to drink wheat beers much, so I donít have much to compare it against. Biggest strike against it might be that the hops do most of the talking, which is not exactly what youíd expect in a wheat ale.

1st rating - I really liked this beer. Not the best aroma, but it went down smooth. Kind of citrus taste. Quite enjoyable.
