Typically, Iíll turn away from things labled "wheat." But this is light golden in color, a light but thick enough head, and a mild nose, with a hint of fruits. Easy drinking and flavorful.

Bottle (12oz) Pale hazy yellow with an average white foamy head. Watery, grainy aroma, hint of fruit, plenty of wheat alright, sort of sweet. Tastes grainy and a bit papery - incredibly weak, flat, not a very good beer, Iím sorry to say

an o.k. american wheat but kind of bland. flavors and aromas consisted mainly of banana, nutmeg, lemon, honey, and hops. pretty weak for a goose island.

A decent hot-weather American wheat, pours cloudy pale gold, very subtle spicing and watery flavor but thirst-quenching, I consider this an affordable but decent lawnmower beer.

Bottle courtesy of Philip, thanks a lot! Pours hazy yellow with a frothy, white, one finger cap. Good retention. Banana and spices in the nose with some citrus and pineapple. Taste is a watered down version of all elements found in the nose. Its got the banana, lemon, spices, and yeast, but not as full as I would like. Crisp, refreshing, good for the summer, and I like beer in the summer! Thanks Phil!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Riverside Tavern in Chicago. Pours nice and hazy with a hugely retentive head. The aroma is primarily of wheat and lemongrass. Flavor and mouthfeel are both soft, with the carryover from the nose of lemongrass and wheat notes. The finish is somewhat bitter and crisp at the end. A good summer brew, and definitely a quencher, but what it lacks in complexity makes it "middle of the road" in comparison to others of the style.
