I usually like a lot of Goose Islandís products, such as their Hex Nut and their IPA. Not this though. terrible. Tastes like water. I literally think there are el cheapo domestics that are better than this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazed straw color with a moderate foamy white head. HInts of wheat and malt which yield to the signature pine and citrus cascade hops. Smells much more like a light APA than a wheat of any nature. Lightly grainy and full light citrus flavors. Light and spritzy in feel. Sweet finish that contributes to a lack of quenching ability. Actually a more interesting american wheat.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out a hazy BMC looking pour with tiny ring of white fizzy bubbles as its head. Nose is bigger on hops than a BMC for sure, actually its quite hoppy in general. Flavor is full of hop and wheat. Plus some slight fruit n dough. A bit on the watery side, but on a nice hot summer day what more could you want in a beer?

Bottle. Poured a fairly clear yellow. Quickly dissapating head, no lacing. Aromas of faint fruit, peach-like. Sweet maltyness with a crisp hoppy bite. Didnít remind me of any wheat Iíve ever had. More like a kolsch, or sommat. Not bad though, a real quencher.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a mildly cloudy piss yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of husks and c-hops. Flavor is mildly sweet med. sour with a very mild citrus twang. Med. light body. No real bitternesss. I hate American Wheats. Can I get an Amen from the congregation!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aromas of peach, apple, and honeysuckle. Some wheat. Clear pale yellow, no head. Apricot. Hops up front, very fresh, clean, somewhat grassy bitterness. Carbonation on the high side. Fizzy mouthfeel. Wheat in middle, dough-whole grain cereal finish. Light bitter aftertaste. Refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at wrigleyville...Poured a golden blonde with large white head continuously fed by abundant carbonation. Aromas were grainy and slightly hoppy with some citrus mixed in. I found the flavor to be somewhat boring, watery and unfulfulling. G.I. has done much better.

(draught) Pale slightly hazy yellow with abundant white head. Lots of bubbles. Hints of lemon and banana. Cold and crisp - good choice for a hot Chicago summer afternoon.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden pour. Light aroma with hints of tangerine. A bit fizzy on the palate, with flavors of melon, orange, and yeast. A bit light on character, but arenít most non-Gumballhead American wheats? Certainly drinkable.
