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.

pretty unimpressive wheat. I had two, but it had an average body with only a touch of wheat and poorly balanced hops. Drinkable

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2006
On tap at Ginoís East Chicago. Pours a nice golden hazy color with a medium white head. Aroma of grass and citrus. Taste of wheat and malt. Smooth as silk and finishes with little tease from the hops.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottled. The body had the color of an unfiltered apple cider. Medium-lasting off-white head. Mild aroma of tangy wheat with a little yeast. Flavor was similiar. Overall, just slightly better than your average ho-hum American wheat.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Cloudy golden color with a small but sustained white head. Wheat and some citrus notes in the aroma. Creamy wheat mouthfeel and flavor. Not great but does the job on a warm day.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Cloudy, glowing electric yellow with a slight white head. Light citrusy lemon wheat flavor and nose. Unspectacular.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Shared with Immy. From bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Nose is musty wheat and light lemon. Flavor follows with a rough, metallic aftertaste. Lightly carbonated palate.

shigadeyo (3246) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Light yellow and hazy, white crown. Light to moderate carbonation. Aroma is of delicate citrus with a little yeasiness. Wheat malt flavor with hints of lemon. Not too much hop flavor. This is a very light and refreshing American Wheat , but not as good as I remember it when it first came out. Actually, I think Iím going to get another bottle because I think something might be wrong with this one (unless they changed their recipe). Regardless, Goose Island is still one of my favorite micros. 12 oz bottle, $1.70 at The Party Source.

Bottle. Not that great. Unimpressive, miller lightish appearance and pour, maybe a tad more golden. Not by any means unappealing, just nothing unique or special. Barely a wheat beer, saved by a hay / straw flavor with a moderate to strong citrus presence. My wife loves it.

uglyblond1 (177) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Not really fair, I donít like wheat beers, and this has a lot of wheat funk to the flavor. The fruityness makes the wheat flavor more distasteful to me. It is a smooth and fuller bodied beer for the type.

(bottle from kevin i think)murky yellow with a nice foamy white head.aroma and flavor mixed up some hay,wheat,earth,and malts.
