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.

Bottle poured a hazy gold color with a decent whitish head that doesnít last long. Very mild aroma of citrus. Fruity ale flavor. Good sessional brew.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 Pours hazy with slight head. Taste is refreshing and flavorful for a wheat ale. If you like wheat ales, this is definitely a good one. This is better than blue moon, but Iím not a big fan of wheat ales in general.

Bottle. Had this only once after more than a few other brews, so the details are a little hazy. Very flavorful wheat beer though. One of the best of the style I have had.

Draft. A light colored light flavored beer. Slightly fruity in flavor. Good easy drinking alternative to light beer.

Nice wheat ale. I was expecting a little more from this brewery but good nonetheless. Aroma was average. Could pick up some light yeast and wheat. Pour was beautiful. I love unfiltered wheat beers. A swirling hazy gold with a one finger white head. Taste was a little bland. Wheat and yeast with light malt but the flavor disappeared after the swallow. Great lawnmower beer.

It was a very light beer, and its body was very clear with a hint of a yellow tint. Not my first pick.

Bottle. Pours clearer than one expects, slightly hazy golden with decent white head that reduces quickly. Aroma and taste are mild, wheat, citrus with bready, dry finish. A little thin, and not one of the best Goose Island brews. Still, makes a great session brew.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a straw semi-hazy color. White head with low retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, mild citrus and watermelon. The taste is very similar with a dry finish. Iím a bit confused as this is supposed to be unfiltered but is actually quite bright. A very drinkable brew, almost session like.

Light wheat beer. Fairly hazy, slightly hoppy. Medium head disappears quickly.

Pretty weak overall with a watery taste. Average palate with a wheat/citrus feel. Head was virtually non-existent.
