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.

On tap, and served in a shaker. This beer poured a lightly hazed golden color with a one-finger thick, off-white head that quickly faded away to nothing. Some very faint lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of wheat malt, very mild citrus notes, and also some grassy/hay notes. The flavor was crisp and light, displaying notes of wheat, lemon, and also some faint orange. The mouthfeel was refreshing and light-bodied with a solid dose of carbonation. I guess this would be fine to session outside on a hot day, but it is definately not one of my favorites.

from a 12 oz. bottle., pours slighly cloudy, but nothing like a hefe. tastes of grass, not pleasant at all. try paulaner hefe or ayinger brau wiesse if you want the real deal.

SHANER4 (469) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2007
12oz bottle - Poured a hazy light straw color with nice white head. Aroma was sweet and smelled like grains. A light mouthfeel with wheat and malt taste. This beer is very easy to drink and is slightly watered down tasting which is nice on a summer day. I was fairly satisfied because it is alot better than Miller or Bud at close to the same price $6.29 a 6pac.

Very cloudy - too cloudy. Too yeasty - covered up the wheat flavor. A little spice and citrus.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Sampled countless times at Goose Island, yellow color, white head. Fairly simple and straightforward. Mildly tart finish, the body and finish dont work for me.

Clear, yellow with a white head. I thought this was a pretty decent brew. It would hit the spot on a hot day.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2007
12oz bottle. light lemony yellow color has a slight haze. bright white frothy head. yeasty citric aroma smells clean. toasty grains play a part as well as mild bubblegum. a soft grainy easy drinking wheat ale. some fruit bubblegum and dry crusty finish are also present.

eaglefan538 (2857) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 11, 2007
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.
