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.

Not really fair, I donít like wheat beers, and this has a lot of wheat funk to the flavor. The fruityness makes the wheat flavor more distasteful to me. It is a smooth and fuller bodied beer for the type.

About what you would expect from a summer beer. Light and sweet with a yellow appearance. More my wifeís preference than my own.

I grew up with the 312 area code in front of my phone number, but fond memories donít allow me to give this one a great rating (cool bottle though)). Basic, weak, an OK wheat beer.

Decent unfiltered wheat beer with somewhat weak hints of fruit and clove. Good Summertime beer.

Typically, Iíll turn away from things labled "wheat." But this is light golden in color, a light but thick enough head, and a mild nose, with a hint of fruits. Easy drinking and flavorful.

On tap 7/14 @ the Wrigleyville Brewpub: Pours a cloudy yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma is yeasty with hints of lemon, banana, and spices. Flavor is initially sweet with a grainy finish. A nice summer brew!

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Bottle from Secret Santa. Pours hazy gold/dark straw with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, some hopcitrus, and some spicy florals. Medium palate density, with flavors of pale bready malts, heavy hopcitrus and some fruit, and floral spiciness with black pepper.

Bottle (12oz) Pale hazy yellow with an average white foamy head. Watery, grainy aroma, hint of fruit, plenty of wheat alright, sort of sweet. Tastes grainy and a bit papery - incredibly weak, flat, not a very good beer, Iím sorry to say
