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.

Pours a pale yellow with minimal white head that dissapates rapidly. Smells of hops and citrus. Taste was mainly hop, but ther is a slight tang as well. Decent beer, but Iíve had better wheats before.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden with thin head. Aroma and taste is sweet and malty. A little bready yeast. Bland and boring.

Bright pale golden hue, slightly hazy. Good nose, aroma of fresh cascade hops. Decent summer beer, more blonde ale than wheat ale.

A tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Pretty carbonated, and on the lighter side. Not much character here.

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.

Yellow and a bit hazy. A light wheat beer for the masses seems to be the goal of this beer. Flavor is light, a bit of grainy wheat, a hint of citrus. Body is light and fizzy. Not much depth here, just a "Wheat Light" kind of beer that macro drinkers can enjoy and feel good about.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours a clear lemon yellow with very light white head. Aroma is of overwhelming citrus and yeast. Flavor is Lemon and wheat but very light, to the point of watery. Not that impressive---definitely expected more from goose island.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours hazy light staw with a fine white head, very similar to the look of hoegaarden. Wonderful aroma for a wheat, citrus, yeast and wheat...doughy. This is definitely one of the most delicate American wheats. Spring water like crispness. Pretty sugary, subtle flavors, with a yeasty, un-malted wheat finish. A lemon might be just what this needs (which is always unfortunate to say...)
