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.

Vary heady and complicated. A tough challenge for any beer man. One of the best.

Hamirubi (568) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
35.5cl bottle at home (1 IV 2016), shared with a friend. An unfiltered urban wheat from Goose Island, hazy amber in a glass with frothy foam head. The grains flavours are vast and omnipresent, yet the hoppiness is as strong. Just a great drinker. Think of an american pale ale (APA) with wheat and hops-powered. The bitterness is very short, and the body is light. Other taste sensations are grain and some turf. Even though it is not my favorite style, I love this smooth drinking hoppied wheat ale.

Bottle from Bertís Slightly hazy light golden color with a smallish off white head. Spicy earthy lemony with some bits of sweet bready and grainy malt. Not horrible, but not something Iíd likely grab again.

Ar- light malt breadyness, light hop aroma, no yeast aroma Ap- hazy straw colored with small white head Fl- pretty bland here, light bready malt flavors, hints of citrus hops, mild bitterness that really balances nothing. Mouthfeel- medium bodied, nicely carbonated, medium attenuation but do you want that in a wheat beer? Ov- not great for me. I understand this is American wheat but I get little hop flavor or aroma, hardly any malt backbone. It's light and crisp but that's really about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle as a gift from Thomas. Pours a hazy gold colour a finger of lasting white head. Aroma of Pilsner & wheat beer. Taste matches the aroma with notes of bread, yeast, and some citrus. Lively carbonation.

Hazy amber pour with thin white head. Light body with subtle notes of wheat and citrus. Slight bitter finish. Nice but forgettable.

Docavey (64) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Had this from the bottle with Marc. Light fruity aroma and taste. Wheat beer but less pronounced than many others. Light mouth feel. Some hops add a little bitterness on the finish. After all it is from Goose Island! F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fin (9667) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Geraint and Helen, thanks you two, consumed at home down the office Wednesday 16th March 2016 Cloudy mid gold on the pour, maybe more pale gold on second thoughts, slim white head atop. Fruity with citrus strains (orange) light wheaty elements drift in and out, absolutely fine but no great shakes. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0
