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.

cheap (4207) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Odd label on this 12 oz brown bottle. Pour is hazy like a wheat but not real cloudy. Lighter yellow vanilla color comparable to many american wheats. Slightly tart and somewhat spicy. Less carbonation than I like in a wheat, usually you think of wheats as being more of a smooth champagne tingle. It’s probably because it’s urban and not rural. Look out, I am torrified buy the wheat. OK for a wheat and as expected compared to other american wheats. Cannot hold a candle to Marzoni’s 22 or Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen. On par with Hopsun and Witsun. Better than JW dundee’s american wheat version.

Pale with white thin head. Light wheat flavor. A wheat beer for the ’Miller Light’ crowd.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 An old "standard" in the Chicago area, this unobtrusive American wheat is a solid performer, but without too many bells and whistles. Easy drinking with a balanced profile, 312 pours a cloudy maize and sports a medium sized, quickly dissipating white head. Lacing is minute. The nose shows a bit of resiny hop character and the body is drying, with a lite citrusy finish. A good wheat beer for non-wheat beer drinkers.

Lowe1983 (1363) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Not very much on the nose. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, lemon, and some spices. Flavor is a little stronger then the nose but it dies pretty quickly without much of a lingering flavor. Flavor is mostly wheat and a little bit of citrus. Not the best american wheat I’ve ever had.

CamdenD (1105) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 22, 2007
Chalky unimpressive wheat. Small indications of must on the nose and very dry, too dry, palate on this beer make it nearly unenjoyable. Goose Island makes good beer -- but this is not one of them -- bland.

Matte gold color, flowery and citrus aroma. Bready, citrus, and mild flavor. Pleasant.

adrian910ss (2371) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a medium white head. weak aroma of wheat, lemon and doughbread. Taste is wheaty with a small lemon punch to it and a slightly sweet finish. Bland and not much of anything here.
