an o.k. american wheat but kind of bland. flavors and aromas consisted mainly of banana, nutmeg, lemon, honey, and hops. pretty weak for a goose island.

A decent hot-weather American wheat, pours cloudy pale gold, very subtle spicing and watery flavor but thirst-quenching, I consider this an affordable but decent lawnmower beer.

Bottle courtesy of Philip, thanks a lot! Pours hazy yellow with a frothy, white, one finger cap. Good retention. Banana and spices in the nose with some citrus and pineapple. Taste is a watered down version of all elements found in the nose. Its got the banana, lemon, spices, and yeast, but not as full as I would like. Crisp, refreshing, good for the summer, and I like beer in the summer! Thanks Phil!

On tap at the Riverside Tavern in Chicago. Pours nice and hazy with a hugely retentive head. The aroma is primarily of wheat and lemongrass. Flavor and mouthfeel are both soft, with the carryover from the nose of lemongrass and wheat notes. The finish is somewhat bitter and crisp at the end. A good summer brew, and definitely a quencher, but what it lacks in complexity makes it "middle of the road" in comparison to others of the style.

After a long day of sighting seeing, this was the first beer that I had and it was new to me. Very good tasting as it was quite cold. I had the draught and iím assuming it tastes the same as the bottled

Hazy pale gold. Very fizzy. Wheaty aroma. Not a lot of character in the taste. Slightly sour aftertaste. It is a decent beer - especially when you need a thirst quencher.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dirty, light straw color with a small, scuzzy head. Aromas are bready with some pear notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Pretty mild and boring.

Tap in Chicago at Bennigans. Actually, it looked pretty good for a hefe. Murky orange pour with a buttload of sediment. Aroma is... bleh. Taste is...bleh. I noted a heavy wheat presence, thin and watery body and a bit of soapiness. I like my summer beers, especially on this day in Chitown, but I think the Widmer they had on tap would be a bit better.
