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.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle. Hazy light yellow with white head. Fruity, citrus with some malt. Quite bland but not bad. A bit boring perhaps.

rosenbergh (9813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2010
355 ml bottle. From Malmö, Sweden.
Hazy pale golden colour with small white head. Fruity hoppy wheaty aroma with some sweetness, cereal and hints of rubber. Flavour is fruity hoppy with malty sweetness. Easy but decent Wheat Ale. Smooth.

malrubius (2452) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 6, 2010
12 ounce bottle in Hoegaarden tumbler. Hazy pale yellow with white head and lace. Cereal wheat tangy and citrus aroma. Fruity peach cereal and wheat tang with mildly bitter finish. Not horrible. I’m not sure what the purpose of this style is. Hence, Bud Golden Wheat.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2010
0.355L bottle from Systembolaget. Two fingers of dense white head, over a misty, gold/straw colored body. Modest, clean and dry aroma. Lemony fruitiness and crisp wheaty malts. Semi-dry, citrus-fruity flavor. Subdued dry maltiness. No hops detected. Not very filling. Lively on the mouth. Dry/sweet fizzy fruit ending. Good quenching abilities, but lack some body and attitude.

madvike (3172) - 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 it’d 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.
