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.

I used to like this one, but then realized it was not all that good. It is a watered down american wheat. If you like the style of american wheat then this might be okay for you. The malts just did not come through for me.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a little white head. Not much lacing. Wheat smell but not overally aromatic. Lacked in flavor and was little more tart than other wheats Iíve had.

Draft sample at GABF 2009. Hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is pale malt, wheat, citrus, and mild hops. Flavor is nicely balanced pale malt and wheat along with a slight citrusy hop kick and light spice. Palate is light and refreshing. This is not bad at all for a wheat ale.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2011 Re-rate as the previous one was kinda bogus. Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL for my 30th birthday party, enjoyed during a summer heat wave. Appearance is almost wit-like, very very light straw yellow, cloudy, with slightly frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, a very small hint of sweetness, also light malts. Flavor is kinda weird, goes down very crisp and great on a hot summer day, but it feels like itís missing something. Very straw like in flavor and body, I do enjoy but mainly in situations where no other brew is available.

Bottle at SBWF 2009. Yellow, small white head. Malty aroma with wheat. Spicy flavor, wheat, malty and quite thin.

guzzler67 (1665) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Cloudy, pale gold appearance with an average size head and little lacing. Subdued, wheaty, lemongrass aroma. Thin on the palate with a weak, wheatish, slightly fruity/citric taste. Light to medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish. Not a drainpour, but little to recommend.

Tap. Very light yellow color. White head., very nice lacing. Not much aromatics. Some light wheat. Boring. Flavor is a sweet wheat malt. Well balanced. a crisp hop finish. Hints of lemon.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy light straw yellow color with a thin, fizzy head. Light lemon zest and grassy aroma. Flavor is a little lacking, but I can pick up some light traces of wheat and lemon in the finish. Very watery texture with lively carbonation. Refreshing but not the most flavorful offering.

Far superior to all those "rural wheat ales" Pours a fluffy medium head with some lace and a lightly hazy yellow color. The aroma is yeasty with some citrus rind. The flavor is lemony yeasty and lightly spicy.
