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.

Bottled. Hazy yellow in color. Aroma is somewhat grainy with a little fruitiness. Grainy flavors with a little bit of yeastiness. Fairly crisp and easy to drink. Not bad for a wheat ale.

I have to love a beer dedicated to chicago. Pours light hazy straw yellow, with thin white fizz. Flavors of banana, pineapple, and slight malts come across, with a finish thats sweet an lemony. This is a great wheat beer.

TKA300 (105) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2009
UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 Out of a bottle. Had a hazy yellowish color with a pretty sweet aroma. Tasted pretty good, not like most wheat beers (which was a plus for me). It was pretty crisp and was extremely drinkable. Definitely a beer that I will get again.

220z bomber. Hazy orange-yellow color. Subdued aroma, a little sweet wheat and malt. The taste is solid, not unlike a Bavarian Hefe, but without the banana yeast characteristics. Some light lemony tang. Excellent full mouthfeel, while still relatively light on the palate. Crisply balanced by the hops, this is quite refreshing and easy drinking.

jgb9348 (4751) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Slightly hazy orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, orange, coriander seed and a little lemon. Medium-bodied; Strong carbonation with a nice malty finish. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, but shows good character throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Fox & Abel in Chicago, Illinois on 07-August-2005.

This is one of my favorite beers. Its refreshing but not too light, flavorful but not overpowering. it has the right balance of all that a wheat beer should. This is one of my beer staples..

Block (1425) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of malts and citrus. Flavor of mostly malts with some orange coming in. I didnít feel that it held up to the hype.
