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.

On draught at Barleys in Overland Park, Kansas. Pours a dense gold with a white head and lace. Light-bodied with a medium mouthfeel where a very light pale ale flavor tried to peek out beyond the wheat. Surprisingly clean, with a subtle hops crispness in the aftertaste. An interesting Wheat.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2006
A cloudy, golden yellow with just a little bit of carbonation. Head fizzled out quickly. Nice and bready and goes down smooth. Fairly decent American wheat beer.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Pours orange/yellow with a white head. It has a very faint wheat nose. The flavor was a little more noticeable but still light, wheat and bananas were picked up. It goes down smooth and overall was very drinkable.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Medium yellow, nice head. Aroma of wheat, quite bready. Rough mouthfeel from the carbonation. Flavor is a straightforward American Wheat. Perhaps the faintest hint of hops at the end, but not much going on there at all. Not bad, but not great. Glad to try it though. Thanks Secret Santa!

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2006
sampled at columbus alefest. pours hazy yellow with a small head. little to no aroma with just a hint of fruityness. wheat flavor, subtle spiceness and little hoppyness. overall, a bland wheat, but would be refreshing on a hot day.

linkolnlogg (94) - your home, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle into shaker (pounder). Pours out a hazy bannana yellow with an obviously intact trub. Head is slight and mildly creamy. Scent is very estery with a strong wheat backbone and a hint of a citrus element. Taste is very full bodied and surprisingly tart and sweet. definite wheat elements as well as hops, and a distinct fruitiness. Palate is sweet and fruity with a mild yeasty residue intermixed. Very complex flavour but not all of the elements marry perfectly... Still yet a good drink, and very drinkable as well.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 B ottle. Pours a very hazy pale gold, with a very tiny tiny wisp of a head. Faint aroma of yeast esters, wheat malt, lemon. Mouthfeel has some faint creaminess, but has more watery texture. Flavor of wheat malt, some phenols, citrus. Some acidity in the finish along with some tang. This is not as bad as the ratings indicate. A crisp refreshing brew, but not a memorable one. Maybe Goose brewed this one to cater to the Blue Moon drinkers?

Rooney31 (42) - USA - SEP 21, 2006
Bottle: Pours a dull orange color with virtually no head. Has an earthy aroma with some hops and slight citrus. The taste is very uninspiring... itís almost like a cross breed between a major macro and an average hefeweizen. It finishes on an almost sour note. For a beer, itís ok.... comparatively to other wheat beers, itís not good.
