2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a really poor offering from Goose Island. Pours to a hazy lemony yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is stale wet straw and the mouthfeel is bland. Flavor is more of the wet straw and grass, with no wheat, spice or dough to be found. Not surprisingly, the finish leaves a bad stale taste.
Stay away from this one!!

Pours a crisp blonde with a medium white head and fine particulate. Aroma is wheat with mild citrus fruits. Taste is carbonated and up front with mild banana and citrus flavors. Finishes with a nice wheat taste. An easy drinking summer wheat.

Can I have another? Might need a wee bit more hops, but still an outstanding brew. Liked it nearly as well as Bell’sOberon.

The aroma and flavor of this american wheat beer is not too shabby. More wheat aroma and fllavor than most--overall a great summer ale.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Odd label on this 12 oz brown bottle. Pour is hazy like a wheat but not real cloudy. Lighter yellow vanilla color comparable to many american wheats. Slightly tart and somewhat spicy. Less carbonation than I like in a wheat, usually you think of wheats as being more of a smooth champagne tingle. It’s probably because it’s urban and not rural. Look out, I am torrified buy the wheat. OK for a wheat and as expected compared to other american wheats. Cannot hold a candle to Marzoni’s 22 or Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen. On par with Hopsun and Witsun. Better than JW dundee’s american wheat version.

Pale with white thin head. Light wheat flavor. A wheat beer for the ’Miller Light’ crowd.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 An old "standard" in the Chicago area, this unobtrusive American wheat is a solid performer, but without too many bells and whistles. Easy drinking with a balanced profile, 312 pours a cloudy maize and sports a medium sized, quickly dissipating white head. Lacing is minute. The nose shows a bit of resiny hop character and the body is drying, with a lite citrusy finish. A good wheat beer for non-wheat beer drinkers.
