Very faint wheat aroma comes from this beer. It pours a pale, cloudy yellow, with a moderate white head. Almost no flavor at all, just hints of wheat and a touch of orange. Itís not a bad beer, but thereís not much here. This may be a good gateway beer.

Hazy yellow body with massive white head. Wheat and some faint herb on the nose. Cereal grain taste with a yeast bite on the finish.

On tap in Chicago. Pours yellow hazy with little lacing on glass. Smells of mild sweet fruits (maybe citrus) but not overwhelming. Taste was mild, fruity, light hops, light on the carbonation. Easy beer for summer drinking. Not very complex, but I enjoyed it.

Poured a hazy yellow with about a finger worth of head, no retention. Aromas of sweet grass, light malt. Tasted of apricot and other fruits, maybe a little honey. Aftertaste was clean. I donít know if they are trying to make this their signature beer, that is widely accessible for the lite beer drinking crowd, but it was nothing special and very forgettable, not very representative of the style either

pours clear golden color, well carbonated. not much taste, some sweet yeastiness, cirtus, mild hop finish. easy to drink, but boring.

This was a great beer. Had it on tap, actually, had about 3 of them on tap :) . The taste of this beer was very new to goose island standards, pale, not as harsh as the other GI flavors. went down smooth with a nutty and fruity taste, the aftertaste was actually really good! Best part- its from chicago!!

This was listed as a hefeweizen at the bar, but it didnít have the full knack of a hefe. It does have a good bit of phenolics in it, like a witbier without the spicing. Big wheat character, though. Light and spritzy. Not bad.

One of my new favorite wheat ales. The hint of citrus flavor was a welcomed surprise.

Too clear for my tastes. Crisp and slight citris flavor if you try. Best served cold on a hot day since flavor doesnít get better as beer gets warmer.

Light golden clear color with no appreciable head. Aromas of very sweet malt, banana, and bubblegum??. The taste, as noted by others, is nearly nonexistent... There are flavors of citrus, light sweet malt, and perhaps a touch of hops. This is far too light on the palate - It is more like drinking carbonated water than beer. Not my favorite.
