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.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy golden with a basically absent head. Light yeasty aroma. Light-bodied with slightly sweet malts and a wee fruitiness. No bitterness. Very thin and a poor excuse for a beer. 190908

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Citrus, spice and wheat aroma wafts over the foamy white head and cloudy straw color of this unfiltered wheat ale. Mouthfeel is very creamy with clove, wheat and citrus flavors finsihing with a slighty hoppy aftertaste. Very refreshing and pairs well with light snacks and/or a picnic food.

Edgekrusher (84) - , Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Very light wheat beer. Not a whole lot of flavor, very clear. Could drink a lot of this during a hot day. Refreshing beer.

UnsofistaCat (235) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2008
On tap and very fresh tasting. Kind of a very light and crisp wheat beer. simple back ground of citrus. these wheat beers are getting old as a whole, but this isn’t a bad beer to have with dinner on a summer night.

MartiniFiend (104) - Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle. Light gold in color with lots of carbonation. Small white head. Aroma is grassy and hops. creamy palate. Flavor is more hop than wheat. I’m not a big fan of wheat beers but I like this one. They didn’t go overboard on the wheat.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Pours a cloudy light gold in color. About a half inch of head on the pour, but it’s quickly gone. Smell is spicy, but off slightly. Taste is hoppy, but rather BMC’ish. Highly carbonated in the mouthfeel. Refreshing, but not good enough to warrant another purchase.

PolakPorter (83) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2008
I really want to like this beer, unfortunately it’s a rare miss from Goose. Color is pale straw and transparent, similar to macro-crap. Taste is slightly wheaty and very light. Very very light. When it’s hot and the 312 is cold, it’s quite refreshing. However, so is just about anything. I’d have to say, stick to the other Goose Island brews.
