COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Bottle at Mcguilicuddy’s. Pour was brilliantly clear golden yellow with lots of carbonation to display. Head and lacing not that impressive, as this style normally has more to offer. Aroma was herbal and fruity. Flavor was earthy, herbal, and fruity, yet no wheat bite and not nearly enough hops in the finish for an Am Wheat. Light body. Came across as a wheat-based blonde ale with little character, only decent drinkability.

bought as part of a variety pack. poured slightly hazy gold, minimal head. aroma is light, sweet while taste was citrus and yeast. nothing special.

33 cl bottle, Fargo. Hazy golden colour, musty lemon aroma, both transfer to the flavor, quite citrusy, interesting but not my favorite.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 For a beer that claims to be so meticulously brewed, including being unfiltered, this is quite pedestrian.

hazy yellow, fine white head, drippy lace, sweet wort aroma, light sweet malt flavor, lots of bready yeast character give the impression of unfermented wort flavor, light bitterness

This is a really poor offering from Goose Island. Pours to a hazy lemony yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is stale wet straw and the mouthfeel is bland. Flavor is more of the wet straw and grass, with no wheat, spice or dough to be found. Not surprisingly, the finish leaves a bad stale taste. Stay away from this one!!

Pours a crisp blonde with a medium white head and fine particulate. Aroma is wheat with mild citrus fruits. Taste is carbonated and up front with mild banana and citrus flavors. Finishes with a nice wheat taste. An easy drinking summer wheat.

Can I have another? Might need a wee bit more hops, but still an outstanding brew. Liked it nearly as well as Bell’sOberon.

The aroma and flavor of this american wheat beer is not too shabby. More wheat aroma and fllavor than most--overall a great summer ale.
