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.

Bottled. Hazy yellow in color. Aroma is somewhat grainy with a little fruitiness. Grainy flavors with a little bit of yeastiness. Fairly crisp and easy to drink. Not bad for a wheat ale.

I have to love a beer dedicated to chicago. Pours light hazy straw yellow, with thin white fizz. Flavors of banana, pineapple, and slight malts come across, with a finish thats sweet an lemony. This is a great wheat beer.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 Out of a bottle. Had a hazy yellowish color with a pretty sweet aroma. Tasted pretty good, not like most wheat beers (which was a plus for me). It was pretty crisp and was extremely drinkable. Definitely a beer that I will get again.

220z bomber. Hazy orange-yellow color. Subdued aroma, a little sweet wheat and malt. The taste is solid, not unlike a Bavarian Hefe, but without the banana yeast characteristics. Some light lemony tang. Excellent full mouthfeel, while still relatively light on the palate. Crisply balanced by the hops, this is quite refreshing and easy drinking.

Slightly hazy orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, orange, coriander seed and a little lemon. Medium-bodied; Strong carbonation with a nice malty finish. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, but shows good character throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Fox & Abel in Chicago, Illinois on 07-August-2005.

This is one of my favorite beers. Its refreshing but not too light, flavorful but not overpowering. it has the right balance of all that a wheat beer should. This is one of my beer staples..

Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of malts and citrus. Flavor of mostly malts with some orange coming in. I didnít feel that it held up to the hype.

On tap at Chigaco Midway airport. Consumed two, served in frosty pint glasses, around 12pm. Aroma was barely noticable, but some hops and graininess present. Had a light yellow color but strangely hazy appearance. The flavors were more like a rather intense pilsner or helles, not anything too reminiscent of wheat. I enjoyed this beer thoroughly, I was surprised by how much flavor and delicate bready graininess it possessed. I ordered this one because it was the only "local brew" on the menu. Thatís what the servers told me anyway. It was pretty dang good, I wish I could get my hands on it, Iíd like to get a few six packs to work on...
