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.

Hazy pale yellow golden. Decent frothy white head. Aromas seems like bread, wheat, mango, mild spice. Light body. Pretty dry. Flavor much like aroma. Yeasty. Lemon. Wheat. Toasty bread. Kinda bland really.

Not very good. Craft bud? Maybe a gateway beer. No aroma. Malty wheat. Not impressed never get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of a flight - five50 in LV. Cloudy yellow with white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is subtle, wheat and a hint of banana. Similar taste and also subdued. Body is light, a bit foamy in the mouth. Largely unremarkable wheat beer.

Beer starts with a hint of earthy grains. As soon as its possible to smell, its gone. Appearance is atypical to an unfiltered wheat, this is the beerís best feature. Taste doesnít match others of this category. Its flavor is missing the smooth straw flavor with mixes of yeast of Schlaflyís Heff or Blvd Brewingís Unfiltered Wheat. Beer is over carbonated, and you can taste it. This beer is good, it could be a lot better. Goose Island produces some higher quality mass market beers this is not one of those.

A very nice drink to enjoy with a meal. I would and will drink again. Could not identify one specific flavor(still learning) in the after taste.

Finhead (1223) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Slightly hazy, yellow pour with a fluffy, white head. The aroma has light wheat along with some faint grass. It has a light, thin body with average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a slightly dry finish.

gegwilson (1478) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
OOD bottle from Rhythm & Booze, Ripon. Poured pretty clear with suspended particles and a white head. Nice light and refreshing with plenty of lemon citrus notes. Nothing to write home about though.
