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.

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.

Poured a very pale yellow with a crisp white head. The aroma has a very apparent wheat smell and overall it is a very good beer.

lamas (1439) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle. Bottled on date: 12/23/08. Pours a hazy gold with tons of little floaties and a HUGE white head. Subtle aroma features wheat, lemons, bananas, bubble gum, vanilla, some spiciness, and hints of corn. Thin-bodied. Starts with some grainy corniness. Finishes with a crisp biscuity dryness and some lemons. Refreshing at least.

mjg74 (2804) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Bottled. Hazy yellow in color. Aroma is somewhat grainy with a little fruitiness. Grainy flavors with a little bit of yeastiness. Fairly crisp and easy to drink. Not bad for a wheat ale.

I have to love a beer dedicated to chicago. Pours light hazy straw yellow, with thin white fizz. Flavors of banana, pineapple, and slight malts come across, with a finish thats sweet an lemony. This is a great wheat beer.

TKA300 (105) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2009
UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 Out of a bottle. Had a hazy yellowish color with a pretty sweet aroma. Tasted pretty good, not like most wheat beers (which was a plus for me). It was pretty crisp and was extremely drinkable. Definitely a beer that I will get again.
