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.

Draft. Hazy pale yellow with a white head. Lemony citrus aromas. Wheat spiciness in the flavor with hints of lemons. A bit thinner than I expected.

TheAlum (5721) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Pours a hazy yellow unfiltered mess. Poured a decent head that dissipates. Smells citrusy, hoppy, and doughy. Tastes alot like its smell. Decent hop character for a wheat beer, but I kept getting a bready/doughy finish. Maybe it was something else that feels familiar but I canít put my finger on. A beer I used to drink alot, but generally pass over for the Honkerís now.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium frothy head. The aroma is sweet light malt and some citrus. The flavor is yeasty with light citrus, and light sweet malts. A slight touch of bitterness. A touch on the watery side.

From a bottle. I thought this beer was a light wheat. Goes down easy, well balanced. Just a little sweat and with hints of lemon.

fiulijn (14770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007
Draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location
Cloudy blond color. Aroma of sugar and lemon zest. Tastes more like a Lager than a wheat, breadish. The final is quite crispy. Refreshing.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at Clybourn on 6/20/07: Pours a clear bright golden with a thin covering of white head. Aroma of sweet orange citrus and pale malted wheat along with some floral noble hops. Body starts lightly sweet and wheaty with a dull bitter balance. Nothing that great, but pretty well done and drinkable for the style.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft (some sushi place in Chicago) Ė Gold with a thin white head. Bland aromas of lemon, citrus, and hints of bread. Light bitter flavors turn lemony and a touch yeasty. Light bodied and thin, soft carbonation, soft citric finish. Fine for sushi I guess, but really not a typical GI brewÖ

pepsican (1447) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 4, 2007
On tap. Cloudy yellow with a bit of head. Citrus, grass, and a stale foot smell. The taste is the same but exchange a pissy alley with the foot. Not horrible but something is completely off. Why does it give me that feeling that Iím licking a dirty street corner every other sip? Probably the worst goose beer Iíve tried, but even that is a step up from most beers on tap at my local bar.
