2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a golden that was barely hazy with a thin white head, very pale. A mild citric fruit aroma with some sweetness. A pretty tart flavor but lacking the richness of a usual wheat. Had a clean, crisp finish. A bit bland.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow hazy pour with a fluffy white head and some wheat floaties that actually add a little character to this beer. Aromas of lemon yeast and well its kinda like cat piss. Very watery in the mouth, citrusy and yeasty with a little bit of hops in the finish. Leaves an almost metallic taste. The good thing is they are selling a hell of a lot of these which will hopefully get them more money for better projects.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle.<!-- br --> Pours a light yellow with a large head that quickly disapates leaving decent lacing. Nose is light, bready with a very thin fruity component. Flavor is watered down, somewhat skunky, apple juice. Itís not undrinkable, just not something to be seeking out.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pretty unimpressive wheat. I had two, but it had an average body with only a touch of wheat and poorly balanced hops. Drinkable

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ginoís East Chicago. Pours a nice golden hazy color with a medium white head. Aroma of grass and citrus. Taste of wheat and malt. Smooth as silk and finishes with little tease from the hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. The body had the color of an unfiltered apple cider. Medium-lasting off-white head. Mild aroma of tangy wheat with a little yeast. Flavor was similiar. Overall, just slightly better than your average ho-hum American wheat.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy golden color with a small but sustained white head. Wheat and some citrus notes in the aroma. Creamy wheat mouthfeel and flavor. Not great but does the job on a warm day.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy, glowing electric yellow with a slight white head. Light citrusy lemon wheat flavor and nose. Unspectacular.

Shared with Immy. From bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Nose is musty wheat and light lemon. Flavor follows with a rough, metallic aftertaste. Lightly carbonated palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow and hazy, white crown. Light to moderate carbonation. Aroma is of delicate citrus with a little yeasiness. Wheat malt flavor with hints of lemon. Not too much hop flavor. This is a very light and refreshing American Wheat , but not as good as I remember it when it first came out. Actually, I think Iím going to get another bottle because I think something might be wrong with this one (unless they changed their recipe). Regardless, Goose Island is still one of my favorite micros. 12 oz bottle, $1.70 at The Party Source.
