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.

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.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2006
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.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2006
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.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2006
pretty unimpressive wheat. I had two, but it had an average body with only a touch of wheat and poorly balanced hops. Drinkable

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2006
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.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2006
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.

TerryR (383) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2006
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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Cloudy, glowing electric yellow with a slight white head. Light citrusy lemon wheat flavor and nose. Unspectacular.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2006
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.

shigadeyo (3006) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2006
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.
