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.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
on tap. A mostly clear yellow hue with a nice white head that had little retention. Aroma was of citrus, spicy and a slight banana note. Flavor was light but well balanced between fruity malt notes and bread notes. Finish was smooth. Carbonation was a little elevated but did not negatively effect the beer.

demitriustown (1134) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2009
12 oz bottle: Aroma is wheat, lemons, a little grassy, and a light hoppiness. Appearance is a very clear yellow pour with a medium sized white head that lingers for quite a while. Taste is acidic, with lemon citrus coming to the forefront, some wheat textures intermingled, and a bit of that chewing gum flavor. Palate is really easy drinking, quite carbonated on the tongue, and the aftertaste has a wheat note to it. Overall, On a hot summer day this would be pretty key, but as a wheat overall I think this one is lacking in some categories. Cheers!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2009
The bottle pours a hazy yellowish golden color with a small, foamy, snow white head. The foam settles quickly to a thin film, leaving minimal spots behind on the glass. The aroma is fairly mundane, with notes of fresh wheat, light cereal grains, and pale malt showing strongest. There is a wisp of floral hop character, along with a drop of honey sweetness. Flavors follow suit, light and clean but boring overall. Basically just wheat and honeyed pale malt. The palate falls somewhere between thin and medium bodied, with balanced carbonation and a lightly prickly, semi-dry finish. Sessionable on a hot summerís day, but boring overall. Decent tailgate beer.

j12601 (7955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a clear light yellow with a nice soft white head. Aroma is wheat, with a touch of lemon. Thin bodied with a lot of active carbonation. Mostly empty flavor wise. Finishes lightly with a touch of wheat, a hint of banana, and a little bit of lemon. Pretty clean, but lacking much substance.

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Pours slightly hazed pale yellow with a tall pillowy white head that has o.k. retention. Aroma is banana, white bread and a touch of lemon. Flavor is sweet grain, honey wheat, banana, and some fruity ester notes. Palate is thin and watery but very crisp and refreshing. Nice refreshing, though ultimately boring wheat.
