COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 wasnít 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.

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. Canít really recommed it but canít hate it either. East to drink on a hot humid night.

312, dammit, this used to be my area code before chicago went and stole it, then they stole whatever they replaced it with and left 630. As for the beer, it is yellow, has the aroma of hay and citrus zest, boring body to it, blah, and dont let it get warm.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow. Smells of orange and another fruit I canít seem to peg. Taste is is citrusy with notes of wheat, yeast and hops hiding quietly in the glass. Pretty smooth and easily drinkable. This would make a great session beer.

First of all, I like Goose product...they brew many fine beers...they know what theyíre doing...but this is a trainwreck of a wheat. It looks like neon urine, smells like corn, and tastes like nothing at all. I am offended by this beer. (On the other hand, maybe I had a bad bottle?)
