COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Pour: Cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Nose: wheat orange lemon malt grass Taste: Slightly hoppy hints of wheat and lemon. Finish: Hoppy on the front a bit coarse through the end. Overall: it is an okay beer Goose Island has made better beer than this. It has a nice flavor that is thin and unrefined.

Bottle. Pours cloudy soft gold with foamy white head. Smells citrusy and semi floral with hints of some spice. Tastes spicy like cloves and some citrus. Bitter aftertaste that doesnt match the beer. Overall, its pretty good.

Draught @ Rebo’s - Pours almost clear yellow, small white head...aroma is bread and yeast, slight citrus...flavour follows, light bitterness, not too much going on...my first GI beer, not that great, watery on the back end...looking forward to other beers...

DSG (5799) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2008
(10/9/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Clybourn, Chicago. Slightly hazy golden. Fruity aroma with hops, flowers, some citrus and light wheat notes. Flavor starts a bit sweetish and fruity with some yeast and a bit of wheat and bread notes and finishes with mild hoppy bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Not bad.

On tap. Tastes slightly spicey, a little like coriander, yeasty, and a sligfht touch of citrus. Some lacing on the glass, pours a clear yellow. One of the better wheat beers I’ve had from the United States.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Aroma: Faint yeast mustiness, not much going on here. Appearance: Pale gold, hazy with visibly suspended sediment. No head, only some white bubbles. Flavor: Lemon, wheat, and dust. No off flavors, but somewhat boring. Palate: Clean, crisp, and drinkable.

Nothing impressive. All my friends recommended it so I tried it and I don’t think that is is worth the hype.

Not much here at all. I could drink it so it wasn’t a total bomb. Light hazy color. Fairly bland taste.

This was a very disappointing outing from Goose Island. Had on tap. Yellow color with little head. Pretty watery with little flavor.
