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.

16 oz. can pours a hazy yellow with a two finger white head and very little lacing. Aroma is muted, but has wheat, grass, and a hint of malts. Tastte is middle-of-the road verging toward bitter instead of sweet. Body is light with average carbonation and with a crisp mouthfeel. I;m sorry that Iím rating this in January rather than after mowing the lawn in July, when it would seem more refreshing and less boring.

Golden malty goodness. This is a good beer! It has everything that a well balanced beer should have! Highly recommend!

Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is faint: some waxiness and herby hops. Flavor is also pretty muted. A bit of nutty sweetness at beginning, then dominated by a mild, ascerbic herby hop character. Medium-light body with a thin, yet creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, really not very good at all.

Aggiebob (152) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Draft poured a hazy gold with a slight citrus aroma. The taste is a little bit bitter with a hint of a citrus taste (orange?) and a smooth finish.

Bamsen78 (3950) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of malt, hops and citrus, with notes of yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of citrus and yeast and malty touches. Acidic and rough finish. Lively carbonation but the mouthfeel is slightly watery nonetheless. Okay, drinkable, but nothing particularly impressive.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, first time rating it on ratebeer, have had it on tap in Chicago. I donít smell most the aromas since I am sick. A very, very good wheat beer. A very well balanced beer not overpowering in any category.

Average. Middle of the road. Typical for the bland ďwheat beerĒ style. Nothing to get excited about, nothing to be offended by. Probably everyone will like it, yet no one will love it. Yawn.

Better than the Pale ale of the same name. By a lot. Fuck that other beer. But, by the same token this beer is pretty average, so whatever.

DomD (145) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Poured from bottle. Aroma of citrus and spruce. Pours a hazy pale colour with white head. Taste is very light bitter. Light body, thin texture, with a bit of a watery finish. Seems like an alright summer beer, but nothing special. Mine was bottled on 1 March 2014 so it might have been a bit too old.

Sampled from a bottle in Chicago. A hazy pale golden colour with a thin white head. Lots of good hop aromas. The taste is quite tart and fruity, with hints of honey. Not much bitterness in the taste. A good thirst quencher, quite mild flavours and just a little bland.
