COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Goldig und trüb. Süßer malziger Geruch. Im Geschmack dann mundvoll, aber weniger süß als der Geruch vermuten ließ. Kleine Hopfennote im Nachgeschmack. Wenig bis kein Weizengeschmack.

Tayeth (490) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
Bier riecht süßlich und schwach nach Pfirsich. Im Geschmack dann Pfirsich und Esskastanien. Insgesamt aber relativ wässrig.

unglaublich (11) - - JUN 6, 2015
I like the broad aromatic spectrum and full taste despite its low abv. Citrus, sweet, bit sour, bit hoppy. Even some caramel. Really nice on a summers eve.

A nice smooth beer. Not hopy at all and reminds of a solid good beer . One of your unsure what to order at a bar this would be a default answer . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The statements from the commercial description like "it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character" are way off. Like many have said before: it is very watery, almost no smell, etc.. I have to say, there are some interesting aroma’s, but they are very subtle. It could be a nice refresher, but even then there are probably better options.

deanso (6575) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
33cl bottle from Albert Hein XL. Thin white head. Hazy light blond pour. Refreshing but not very interesting. Not much to it.
