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.

Schlumpfhunter (154) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2016
Farbe: trübes orangegelb Schaum: keiner. Nase: ganz leicht nach Weizen, minimal Keller. Geschmack: sehr feinperlig sprudlig und bitter auf der Zunge. Wird um Abgang dann weicher Gerste. Richtung Nachgeschmack könnte ich vielleicht noch die auf der Flasche angekündigte Zitrone wahrnehmen. Hm Bier wäre noch ein Jahr haltbar. Schmeckt man nicht. Überhaupt nicht meins. Gattin merkt an dass ihre Flasche am Tag zuvor anders und besser gewesen wäre. War wohl im Eimer?

Had as a " mystery beer" at hidden tree house bar.... Was quite smooth and had various flavors start to finish. Not bitter at all. Better than I expected.

jaghana (5523) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle 355ml, a copper beer with medium head. Aroma is on caramel, sugar notes, did not get the wheat, like a belgian blond, correct for the alcohol level, light fruits.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Had this at Giordanos with a slice of lemon (wtf giordano’s?...) - The beer itself is like a witbier without the belgian touch, but with american hops! Very good, flavors of lemon, coriander, wheat banana and cloves. Crisp and light. Finishes off with a nice low bitterness.

Cerveza color dorada ligeramente turbia con una corona pequeña de burbujas. Al aroma de percibe un aroma dulce con sutil aroma a trigo. Al paladar se perciben notas secas con ligeras notas dulces al final. Cerveza ligera apropiada para aquellos que gustan de cervezas frescas poco amargas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a can while the dog watches from couch while the neighbor is weed eating. Wife will make me soon as her parents are coming but for now I am enjoying this beer on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsporrer (740) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden straw yellow with a thin white ring. Not much of an aroma and not much wheat flavor. Not as good as I had expected it might be.
