2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When poured the beer looks to be unfiltered. Hazy straw like color with lots of floating sediment. Citrusy lemon nose. Mildly carbonated and dry, with notes of lemon and grass flavors, and a touch of hops in the finish. An okay beer/wheat.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours pale yellow, active carbonation with a quickly fading white head. Smells sweet and earthy alike. Very bubbly mouthfeel with a citrus crispness thatís fairly enjoyable. Very mouth-drying finish. I think more malt would give this basically decent beer a reason to rave.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Pours pale and hazy with a frothy head. The aroma is mild with a citric character. Boring and unsubstantial. Thin body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This hoppy metro wheat is spicy but smooth and leaves the consumer with hints of crisp lemon and banana tastes and smell. Goose island has been consistent with this beer like their others with big bold hoppy tastes but mixing it with a easy to drink highly hopped tasty wheat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy yellow body with a thick white head. Aroma has some hops, citrus and a grassy smell. Flavor is mostly absent, but hints at some citrus and wheat. Palate is watery. When Goose Island has the chops to make beers as good as the Bourbon County Stout or the Imperial IPA, I donít know why they waste their time on this one. Not a very impressive beer.

bottle - This is an okay wheat beer. Like most American wheats, itís a bit sweet and easy to drink. Thereís a hint of citrus in the flavor and very little noticeable hops. Itís just rather unremarkable and thin.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz. Bottle: I thought it looked quite thin and not appatizing, until I looked a little closer. There was a steady carbonation moving throughout and a strange suspended lacing that was beautiful in a beer kind of way. The head explodes foamy only to dissapate immidieatly following an agressive pour. The aroma is grassy, citrus, urine, doughy, pine. The flavor is well ... less than the 6 I gave the aroma. Very dissapointing. Its a Goose Island, it shouldnít be bad, but there is almost nothing there. The palate is stiff, stale and biting. Not a beer I will try twice unfortuantly.

This isnít too bad of a wheat beer. Not very citrusy, but it still has some fruity flavors. Very full bodied.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A skunky smelling beer that looks like piss yellow. Not very flavorful and a low palate. Overall Iíd say if you want a good wheat ale take Blue moon over this crap.
