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.

Pours hazy pale lemon yellow with white head. Aroma of strong citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is a bland wheat with a smidgen of citrus and yeast. The flavor is dominated by carbonation. Reminds me too much of the typical American macro brew.

Eh. Itís drinkable, fairly refreshing, but nothing to it really. A bit of wheat flavor but no real wheat or yeast character.

This was my firsting whack at a Goose Island product. Hopefully the rest of their line will turn out to be better than this one. Not a bad tasting beer but really no outstanding qualiities. Pretty much an average wheat, definitely not worth the premium price you pay for it.

hombrepalo (1757) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Missed this one. This has to be the most popular micro brew in chicago. Its nice and refreshing on a summer day and better than any macro brews here. So why not. Pours cloudy hazy yellow some head, an unfiltered look. Smell is of spice and wheat. Taste is of a faint watered down citrus/malts/wheat/spices and lots and lots of water. Finish is lifeless. Overall an average wheat.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Hazy pale yellow with a slowly diminishing soapy white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus and perfumed malts. Taste of wheat and corn in a thin and lifeless body that finishes astringent. I think Iíll stick to rural wheat beers.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
An aggressively average beer, pouring golden yellow into my chilled glass with a substantial white head. The flavor is a malty wheat blandness with the merest hint of a hoppy follow through.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckiní hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle: This beer is exactly what you would expect. Cloudy pour, aroma of corriander spice, flavor is crisp and light citrus, bready. Crisp, pale, bready malt finish. Best served VERY COLD.

TheElder (49) - DeSoto, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Letís see... Urban Wheat. Maybe they meant Urban as in a college town. This is a pong-able beer and that is not a good thing. Cloudy golden pour. Thick sudsy white head that doesnít go away. Tons of carbonation. Bread-like near the end. Bad news, overall.

Was not terribly impressed. Itís a typical American beer thatís trying just slightly harder than Budweiser to have some kind of flavor. Not bad but certainly average.
