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 tap. Tastes slightly spicey, a little like coriander, yeasty, and a sligfht touch of citrus. Some lacing on the glass, pours a clear yellow. One of the better wheat beers I’ve had from the United States.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Aroma: Faint yeast mustiness, not much going on here. Appearance: Pale gold, hazy with visibly suspended sediment. No head, only some white bubbles. Flavor: Lemon, wheat, and dust. No off flavors, but somewhat boring. Palate: Clean, crisp, and drinkable.

Nothing impressive. All my friends recommended it so I tried it and I don’t think that is is worth the hype.

Not much here at all. I could drink it so it wasn’t a total bomb. Light hazy color. Fairly bland taste.

This was a very disappointing outing from Goose Island. Had on tap. Yellow color with little head. Pretty watery with little flavor.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy golden with a basically absent head. Light yeasty aroma. Light-bodied with slightly sweet malts and a wee fruitiness. No bitterness. Very thin and a poor excuse for a beer. 190908

Citrus, spice and wheat aroma wafts over the foamy white head and cloudy straw color of this unfiltered wheat ale. Mouthfeel is very creamy with clove, wheat and citrus flavors finsihing with a slighty hoppy aftertaste. Very refreshing and pairs well with light snacks and/or a picnic food.
