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.

Sampled at Giordinoís in downtown Chicago. Pours really pale yellow. Has a bit of head on it. Not your best quality wheat brew but its well made.

AirForceHops (6185) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Pours a light opaque color typical of a wheat ale. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy but a little more doughy/stale than expected. Flavor was very mild and bitter with some sweet/spicyness. Nothing really too special. Palate is simple, taste like the aroma. This is good for a commercial wheat.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours a hazy straw color. Moderate white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is wheat and tart citrus. Similar flavor. Minimal aftertaste. Very refreshing lawnmower beer.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Very mild, easy to drink. Nothing off flavor wise, just a very mellow beer. Like a blue moon light I guess.

Petko (1) - Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2010 does not count
A great wheat beer, cloudy gold in color like a good wheat should, pair well with any citrus if desire, and a presidential favorite. Top ten in best wheat beer in my opinon

Cartoonkhaki (1252) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
Yellowish with a small white head. The aroma is weak with light fruit hints and a bit of malt. Flavour is mild like the aroma. Watery palate.

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2011 I enjoyed this beer a great deal. I ordered a 32 ounce cup of this on tap at an Avett Brothers concert and had a good deal of it gone before I could even get back to where I was standing for the show. Appearance is a hazy yellow. Taste was like a yeasty bread and the palate was banana nut bread. Great beer that I would love to try when Iím sober.

rags2rags (149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap at Winking Lizard. Yellow pour with a surprisingly thin head. Weak aroma of wheat and citrus. Flavor doesnít take the aromas much further. Watery mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Nothing worth seeking out.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
Bottled. A hazy straw coloured beer with a white head. A wheaty yeasty aroma with a bit of fizzy fruit and a bit of orange. Middle of the road fruity wheaty flavours. Just an average beer but itís a boring style.
