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.

Nice gold color. Aroma and taste is citrusy, with somewhat breadiness and floral. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Strong citrus aroma. High carb with a lot of lemon and orange peel flavor. Slow developing wheat finish. Nice, light beer.

12 oz bottle at Missipi Brewing Co. Wheat bready malts, crisp citrus hops, easy to drink.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Keg at The Banshee. Hazy golden with a half inch head that dissipates to a thin but lasting foam. Light lacing. Pretty nice looking pint. Aroma is poor, with mostly grapey cellar must and light lemony and grassy notes. Taste has a balance of light lemony bitterness, light-medium wheat flavor and a very light sour note. Lingering what aftertaste on a lively carbonated light-medium body. Not a great beer, but barring the aroma, fine and drinkable.

BLADT (195) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2014
From 12oz bottle. Unfiltered, yellowish tea-like color in glass. Small, white head of large, uneven bubbles. Dissipates quickly. Aroma is faint (if I was being charitable, I would say understated) lemon and pilsner yeast. Taste is equally thin. Some general hopy bitterness. Trace of citrus. Very little wheat in the flavor, but because I was primed to expect it, I can, I guess, pick up on traces of the titular flavor. Not bad out of bottle or on a summer day when your expectations are low.

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2014
Tap at OíHare. bright yellow with a tall, fine head. Slightly cloudy, effervescent. Nose of creamy wheat, lemon, a bit of butter, biscuits. Full malt flavor, very biscuity and enjoyable.

Very drinkable, but not exciting in the least. Pale, lighter banana, wheat and a faint bit of spice. Lighter body
