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.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Draught from The Pub poured into shaker with a lemon garnish - Pours clear gold with a very minimal head; Lemon and wheat to the nose; Lemon, wheat and a hint of pine hops on the initial taste; A bland wheat backtaste; Medium watery palate; Too much carbonation; Not impressed. Goose Island is normally spot on with their brews, but this one leaves a good bit to be desired. Lots of the lemon probably came from the garnish.

Hazy in appearance. Not much of a head at all. A little light for a wheat. Easy drinking, though, with hints of banannas and mild spices.

uvajed (171) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Nice, but not as strongly flavored as I like a wheat beer to be. Thin light head that didnít last long, fairly carbonated, light aroma of wheat, citrus, and yeast. Tastes of wheat and bananas, with a bit of hops and citrus. Not bad at all, but Iíd like more what and hops bitterness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle. Hazy very effervescent yellow body with a lasting thin head. Nose-very dusty and ďoldĒ smelling. Taste-dusty, moldy, wheaty, medium-high CO2, light orange, slightly vegetal like celery or lettuce. A very unoffending wheat beer that is easy to drink. I would drink more of this if I could.

Doesnít give as much as some would like, but it doesnít ask for much either. Acid crisp cuts your tongue like a Chicagoan wind-rip. Man with trash-stache recommended highly.

12oz bottle in pint glass. Decent brew. An american wheat, id prefer a sunset wheat to this. Very small and fizzy head that dissipated very very quickly. Average mouthfeel, a little sweet. Id drink it again.

Dorwart (2342) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Thin white head of fine bubbles. Good carbonation. Lots of floaters. Not really wheat floaters though. More like chunky floaters. Light vegetal aroma with a little lemon and weak hops. Color is a medium gold. Flavor is plesant but a little weak. Some wheat and a little biscuit malt. Finish is a little grainy but clean. A decent wheat brew but nothing special.

a surprisingly bad beer from a great brewery. This is a one note wheat thatís very forgettable. Save your cash and get something else folks!

tomciccateri (987) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 6, 2006
On draught at Barleys in Overland Park, Kansas. Pours a dense gold with a white head and lace. Light-bodied with a medium mouthfeel where a very light pale ale flavor tried to peek out beyond the wheat. Surprisingly clean, with a subtle hops crispness in the aftertaste. An interesting Wheat.

A cloudy, golden yellow with just a little bit of carbonation. Head fizzled out quickly. Nice and bready and goes down smooth. Fairly decent American wheat beer.
