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.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2007
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

drpimento (2319) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2007
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.

drewbeerme (3885) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2007
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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2007
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.

mephisto (1272) - TAIWAN - JAN 22, 2007
draft. clear golden with thin white head, the aroma is weak citrus. rather undistinguished wheat profile.

theisti (3349) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2007
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.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2007
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.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
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.

Silphium (3186) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Hazy pale yellow body, like a lemonade but with straw tones, thin off-white head. Earthy, biscuity aroma. Light, tart, bready body, grassy. Tastes a bit stale despite the 10 April 2007 drink by date, although, come to think of it, that same taste characterizes their Summer Ale. Rather dull and boring, and Iím not a big fan of the palate, either. Pass.
