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. Pours cloudy amber with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting. Light citrus wheat aroma. Light to medium body and a thin texture. Moderate sweet wheat flavor with small bitter finish of short duration.

I have been a fan of Goose Island Beers for over 2 years so naturally I bought this without question, needless to say I was shocked. Disappointing, This beer lacks flavor. The Color of this beer is a Deep Yellow color (Cloudy from being unfiltered), The Aroma is pretty tame, nothing harsh, no real characteristics, the one quality the beer has is that it leaves no aftertaste, but the negative side to that is that it also leaves no taste while drinking it. I drank 3 bottles trying it at different temperatures from at the point just before freezing, at roughly 45į, and also at about 60į None of which changed the flavor only changed the film it left when drinking.This brewig company is still one of my favorites, just not this beer.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with OhioDad, thanks Scott!) Best when consumed by 20-Feb-06. One of my least favorite beer styles, and this American Wheat from Goose Island lives up to my expectation of mediocre beer. Minimally sweet, only lightly hoppy or bitter, and with a non-descript wheat maltiness, this beer mostly just tastes like cardboard, which I find a little surprising. A very slight fruitiness hides far in the background. The nose is papery and dry. Light bodied, but not watery, and carbonation is fine. Medium straw, somewhat hazy, and capped initially by a good inch of white, rocky head before it settles to a filmy layer. A few small patches of lace remain behind on the glass. Not only is this a boring, lightly flavored beer, but you know youíre in trouble when cardboard is seemingly the most prominent of the flavors.

A pleasant wheat to drink. Not overbearing with the sour mash taste that the stronger wheats get into. At least a two bottle buy.

Surprisingly, a pretty yeasty, wheaty brew from Goose Island. Almost a german hefe, though not quite. Cloudy and murky with a good amount of flavor. Easy to drink, yet overly fizzy as wheats tend to be.

A fairly typical American Wheat - not that yeasty or funky. Light yellow in color. Some aroma (faint). Acceptable.

Pleasant but not particularly impressive. Very easy to drink but rather bland, flavorless.

Ok, so initially this taste like sour water on the first sitp. After a couple drinks, it taste better, but still not all that good.

medium yellow, slightly hazy with lots of bubbles. Thick foamy head that disipates quickly. Slight lemon and orange aroma. wheat/lemon flavor. Yum!

This was definitely the best beer that I had during my time in Chicago. It has a very yeasty aroma and a cloudy appearance. It is clearly unfiltered and tastes wonderful. Itís very creamy with the taste of yeast and hops, with a hint of lemon? This is a very good beer, which I highly recommend.

Bottle--Drank in a park at an evening party, so the appearance was hard to rate, probably a cloudy yellow color with medium carbonation, lemon aroma and taste. Perfect drink for a perfect Labor Day picnic.
