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.

Bottle from Ryan. Thanks. Ive wanted to try this one for a while, and I finally got my chance. Kind of disappointing really - just tastes like what I think something that is in a bottle that says BEER should taste like. Some corn flavors, grain tasting, smooth and light though. Not bad, but its no oberon. Thanks man.

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Cloudy, light yellow pour. Grainy, grassy, slightly spicy aroma. Flavor has a tangy finish, only slightly sweet at the start. Thin body, but clean, crisp mouthfeel. Not much else. Easy drinking, thirst quenching.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Aroma is light citrus and hay. Color is cloudy pale yellow with a white diminishing head. Flavor is mild, light citrus qualities with a bitter grassy aftertaste. Light bubbly mouth-feel. Ok overall.

Thin, gold, small white head. Very light aroma and mouthfeel. I prefer a Belgian Wit to an American Wheat style, but this is drinkable in a pinch.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw gold with a thin white head. Light grassy aroma. Very light mouthfeel, definite american wheat flavor. Might make a good hot weather beer.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Gift from Brigadier, thanks! Aroma of subtle banana, lemon, very subtle cherry or other red, berry-like fruit. Pale yellow, with a touch of cloudiness and a thin, white head. Light flavors of lemon and banana and a quick finish with a touch of graininess. Light palate, slightly watery. Quick drinking beer without major flaws.

Draft. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Spicy aroma with lots of citrisy flavor. Fizzy. Not that bad.

It looks a bit cloudy. I don’t smell much of the aroma. It tastes spicy, with a bit of the bitterness but has a sweet after taste.

This was not one of those dry or bitter wheat ales. This beer was really smooth with a bit of lemon flavor. It has nothing particularly special about it, but it is consistent. I must disagree with others and say that I enjoyed this brew.
