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.

Thin, gold, small white head. Very light aroma and mouthfeel. I prefer a Belgian Wit to an American Wheat style, but this is drinkable in a pinch.

Bottle. Pours a hazy straw gold with a thin white head. Light grassy aroma. Very light mouthfeel, definite american wheat flavor. Might make a good hot weather beer.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Gift from Brigadier, thanks! Aroma of subtle banana, lemon, very subtle cherry or other red, berry-like fruit. Pale yellow, with a touch of cloudiness and a thin, white head. Light flavors of lemon and banana and a quick finish with a touch of graininess. Light palate, slightly watery. Quick drinking beer without major flaws.

Draft. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Spicy aroma with lots of citrisy flavor. Fizzy. Not that bad.

It looks a bit cloudy. I donít smell much of the aroma. It tastes spicy, with a bit of the bitterness but has a sweet after taste.

This was not one of those dry or bitter wheat ales. This beer was really smooth with a bit of lemon flavor. It has nothing particularly special about it, but it is consistent. I must disagree with others and say that I enjoyed this brew.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Sour wheat, lemon, light malt. Boring. Appearance: Light orange in color and hazy. White head was full and foamy with decent retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lightly sour wheat, some light malt and yeast, lemon. Spritzy finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied and a little watery. Medium carbonation. Overall: Dull and boring. Nothing that would make me want to order another.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 I love this stuff! One of my favorite wheat beers. Itís got a lemony wheaty thing going on.....light, crisp and refreshing. Not much complexity, but very flavorful...it really hits the spot.

VegDisc41 (42) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow body. Smells of wheat. Flavor was wheat and sweet, not much complexity. Felt fine in the mouth. Nothing exceptional but could be okay for summer.
