Like the digits suggest, itís a beer thatís densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We donít filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thatís how you know itís 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. Itís not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youíd expect.

Golden and hazy with little head. Aroma of hops. Has the flavor of hops but not much of it. Very little flavor.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Pours a light yellow with tiny particles in suspension and a small, frothy, off-white head that diminishes. This one is pretty clear for a wheat. The nose is sweet wheat malt and yeastiness. The mouthfeel is light and thin with a clean, smooth finish. Sweeter than most American wheats that I have tried, the flavor is light honey and wheat with a faint citrus in the the finish. A decent American wheat, and one that I wouldnít mind seeing at a family BBQ.

Massive head, and a bold yellow appearance. Wonderful aroma, almost apricot-like, very much wheat. Iím a little underwhelmed by the flavor, but itís still good; itís a wheat beer thatís smooth, for the most part. Perhaps I poured it improperly resulting in the large head that made it a little difficult to drink. Either way, I will very likely try this beer again sometime, and Iíd recommend it to others too!

On tap. Nose was slightly of citrus. Not much going on. Unfortunately, this carried over to the taste. Very watery mouthfeel. I was surprised this beer was made by Goose Island. Almost a sad attempt by a micro brew at something that would appeal to the mainstream pale lager taste....but not be a pale lager. Shame on Goose Island and shame on this beer. Not worth drinking again!

Chicago trip. Monday 14:17+. On tap at Clybourn. Hint of haze. Pale yellow. Hint of chemical in the nose. Creamy plain taste. Muddled wet grain. Not joyful.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2007
On draught. Yellow-gold translucent with frothy, white head--really a nice hat for an American wheat. Some wet sourdough aroma, wheaty-yeasty flavor with some lemon-zest notes. A bit wet. Refreshing and sessionable wheat beer that does have some character.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Rated 8/8/06: Not much doing with this beer, no bad aspects but nothing spectacular either. Aroma is a mellow wheat with an ever so slight citrus scent. Nice appearance, hazy golden yellow with a good white head, very crisp. Mouthfeel is full and clean. Flavor is basically standard for an American Wheat. It is enjoyable but I really wanted more out of this beer.

yellow pour, clear with minimal head...aroma of grain, light grass, and a touch of citrus...flavor is mostly earthy with small citrus complements... somewhat spicy as well..

Bottle from Ryan. Thanks. Ive wanted to try this one for a while, and I finally got my chance. Kind of disappointing really - just tastes like what I think something that is in a bottle that says BEER should taste like. Some corn flavors, grain tasting, smooth and light though. Not bad, but its no oberon. Thanks man.
