COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

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.

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 aren’t most non-Gumballhead American wheats? Certainly drinkable.

Personally I do not care for any U.S. brewer that claims any Hefe style beer and does not deliver in the aroma or taste. This does not deliver on any category For the price why not buy a BMC.

Bottle. Pours a light orange color with very thin fizzy head. Nose is lemons and wheat. Taste is watery with some light orange flavors to it, a small amount of acidic citrus. Good on a hot day

There really wasn’t a lot to this beer... Cloudy yellow pour with a small white head. Only some slight citrusy aroma, but you have to sniff really hard. Flavor was wheaty, with a little of the citrus hoppiness from the nose. Light-bodied and watery. Not a whole lot in the finish, either.

Pours a cloudy light yellow, white a white reasonably sustaining head. Aromas are of lemon and other citrus with a mellowness from the wheat. Flavor is slightly watered down, with the wheat and lemons up front. No lasting finish, mouthfeel is light and watery. A nice session beer during the summer.

So what makes this Urban, I dont know? Pours a cloudy yellow with a slight layers of white head. Aroma is lemon bread, pleasant. Tastes like it smells, wheat, yeast, and lemon are noted. Light body and slick. Not bad when you are in the mood for something on the mellow side of the scale.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle. The aroma was sweet lemon candy with wheaty malt undertones. Really, my first impression was that this smelled kind of like a Pinot Grigio. Fruity like that. The appearance was a hazy straw yellow with hardly any head. The taste was primarily dominated by a light wheat taste, almost exclusively. I thought to my self that this needed some type of fruit wedge floating in it. The body was creamy and light. Not too bad, but there was not much character in the taste (which is why I think a piece of fruit would do this justice).

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is nice and zesty lemon with a touch of hop. Flavor is rather bland though with a touch of lemon and cream. Can’t really recommed it but can’t hate it either. East to drink on a hot humid night.
