3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale straw color. I poured too hard and got lots of floaties in suspension. They eventually settled out. Attractive white head and a nose of citrus and grass. I really enjoyed this beer. It seems to be an American wheat with some flavor. Bready malts with some lemon citrus flavors. The finish has some grass and citrus rind in it. Nice refreshing summer beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale straw yellow color with big creamy pure white head. Aroma is slightly citrusy, bit of honey and pear. Flavor is crisp, clean, almost lager-like, touch of honey. Finish is mildly sweet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a barely murky, pale yellow, with a small amount of fairly coarse, floating sediment. Aroma predominantly lemon and yeast, with some light bread and grass. Flavor not particularly impressive; very light bread and a barely bitter finish; horribly light. Medium-light body. Drinkable, but not one of Goose Islandís better offerings.

Bought this as a goose island sampler. bottle. pours a hazy, cloudy yellowish color with a thin short lived head. Aroma is of hops. This beer is different, tastes of spices, hops, and fruity flavor. Overall a descent beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy neon yellow with thin white head. The aroma is grainy with some zest and hay. The flavor is rather bland, almost like yeasty water. There are som zesty notes in there and some distant hops in the finish. Not very exciting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Faded whitish lemon yellow with a waffer thin cap of white foam slipping right off to a skinny collar. Some broken up, uneven sheets of lace stick across the glass closer to the liquid.
Aroma is of pale wheat dough, lightly fruit sided with a starchy banana-like cookie mixed with lemon bread poking through.
Taste is fine, wheaty, slippery, a little light in a couple areas, but never weak really. It ghostly stays to the back of the palate with a wheat stamp of lightly snappy texture and buzz while a soft, very light banana/lemon bread dough kinda floats in and out around the corners giving it just enough extra interest helping it from being completely boring or average.
Feel is smooth and malty with a pale wheat backed texture that fits well with what itís offering. The carbonation is medium and well rounded with a bold snappy front and middle. Finish is a little drab and empty but tends to soften out and build with a light drying wheaty, grassy, doughy malt coating the palate late.
A decent pale wheat brew that can be enjoyed by many a glass full.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. Cloudy lemon color pour with a white head. Aroma is papery and wheaty with not much else going on. More paper and wheat in the flavor with a modicum of citrusy fruit notes. Light, thin, and boring , though not offensive in any way. Goose Island certainly makes more appealing offerings.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light hazy yellow with a moderately sized white head. Aroma is fairly non-descript with some light wheat character. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts off with smooth wheat character - not much else at the beginning. The finish is prickly and somewhat metallic. This is an okay beer, but not really up to Goose Island standard in my opinion. Pretty much a plain wheat beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light fruity aroma with some hops is noticible. The color is a very pale yellow with a small white head. Slight citrusy and hoppish taste accompanied by a light finish.
