Like the digits suggest, its a beer thats densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We dont filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thats how you know its 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. Its not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youd expect.

madvike (3135) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2010
Bottle - Pale yellow pour with a nice bubbly white head. Decent grassy hops on the nose, with bubble gum, sweet wheat, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is a bit bigger and grainier than I expected. Thought itd be sweeter, but the barley malt really comes out and dominates the taste through a long finish. Slightly spicy hops with a mineral water taste in the background. Tastes a bit odd, but it goes down easy.

zer0crew (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden. Aroma is a bit weak, not picking up anything super distinct. Flavor has hints of citrusy fruits, tiny bit bitter, with a nice amount of wheat and yeast, and it pretty fully bodies for a lighter beer. A pretty well balanced brew that is pleasing to the palate. A good summer beer.

Barely no head. Light in color. Smell and flavor like a pear soda. Difficult to detect any hops, the bitterness is just symbolic. Not much of a beer. Drink something else.
