2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Lots of wheat and yeast in a malty nose, lemon and grain with some piney orange Cascade (the mystery ingredient!). Particulate pale yellow with lots of carbonation and a sticky white head. Lots of citrus up front with some acidity to match the doughy, bready malt. Light cascade presence. Some wheat in the finish but not really dry. Not sure what to make of this one, doesnít really conform to a rigid style and, despite the carbonation and light body, isnít really refreshing. On the whole, crafted but dull.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange-yellow. Thin wheat flavor with very little body. Refreshing in a sense that it wouldnít be bad on a summer day, but it isnít horribly satisfying.

Not very imressive, had on draft in Chi. IL. Off yellow color, overly carbonated one of the worst Goose Island has to offer

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
sure doesnít match that fab description. thin watery, shallow, fizzy. a slight haze, but no indication of yeast. Itís a good thing itís not like any other goose brews. and it was less than I expected. This was a sample.

12oz, pours very clear piss yellow with no head. nose is very yeasty and coriander. taste is yeasty, vegatable, lemony, pepper, with mild citrus. mouthfeel is fizzy. flavors are blended pretty well and this is refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy-clear yellow with lively carbonation. Hoppy and grassy on the nose. Tastes of flat grass with faint lemon and green vegetables thrown in a blender and pureed. Watery mouthfeel, but not too watery. Average at best.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured cloudy straw color. Some foam that hung around for about 5 minutes. Aroma is distant citrus, bit of malt. The taste is muted wheat and bubbles. Surprised at the carbonation. Nothing really stands out in this one, and certainly is not a big wheat, but it is quite drinakable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
First time Iíve been disappointed with a GI product. Poured a cloudy blonde with a healthy head. The aroma was foul, but there wasnít much of it so Iíll give them some points there. Flavor was sweet with bananas and a little malt. Just not much there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy yellow, topped by a fizzy quarter inch of nearly white foam. Good carbonation is evident. No head retention, no lacing. Slight dry wheat aroma.
Slight wheat flavor - dry but not really tangy. More of a cereal grain than anything else. Light body. Generic hops for balance - no character. You know - thatís it - the lack of character in this beer. It is decent, it is well made, but it does nothing for me.
