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.

Clear pale yellow color with a good sized foamy head. Aroma of lightly spiced wheat and citrus. Flavor is sweet and spicy yeast and a lemony citrus bitterness. Light bodied but still feels oddly thick on the palate. All in all a good beer.

Aroma of wheat and hops. Flavor consists of earthy citrus, wheat malts, and a slightly hoppy finish. A good beer, but nothing unique here.

JaBier (5485) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2010
On tap at Tilted Kilt. Pours semi-hazy yellow with a big white head. Creamy and wheaty malt nose, not much else going on. Flavor matches. I guess I like the fact that itís an American wheat instead of a weizen, but still not my thing. I might look at this beer differently if it wasnít 8 degrees outside. Maybe Iíll give it another shot come summertime.

Bottle. Hazy gold and yellow with a medium head. Aromas are pineapple with caramel and wheat. Lemon with yeast and soft spices. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with gentle lemon bitterness. Has a nice spritzy, yeasty palate. Decent.

vtafro (4836) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Spicy wheat flavor... Slight sweetness but mainly wheat and malt characteristics. Where is the hop presence?

jake65 (2885) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle: Pours a pale straw color with a large white head. Not much aroma present, faint notes of wheat and malt. The flavor is a sweet malt base with light wheat notes and a little floral hoppiness in the tail. A tame crispness in the finish. Rather mild, yet good.

Pours out golden with a little bit of suspended sediment. Small, white head. Aroma is pretty light, with wheat notes. Taste is the same. Pretty weak, but wheat flavored.

Draught at the White Horse American Beer Festival, July 2009. Pale gold. Maybe a hint of yeast but not really very much going on. Easygoing and straightforward with no great character. Sweetish. May have shown better on its own rather than surrounded by a bunch of much bigger US beers. Not really a very inspired choice to bring over for a US festival but I guess they needed something for the normal Sloaney Pony punters.

Draught @ Fire Rock Grille in Des Moines:   Pale straw, faint haze, fairly clear otherwise, thin white sudsy head, dies quickly leaving sparce lacing.   Carbonation seems nil.   Weak straw and grass nose.   Wheat aspect is faint.   I was told this was a light wheat ale?   Sure seems that way.   Rather grassy on the tongue but also wheaty.   Faint mealiness, but its not bad.   Seems like a watered down American Wheat, which probably what they were going for.   Not bad, good on a hot day.   Problem being its not hot, but may 28F.   Anyways, a little corny on the backside, in addition to the straw and grass.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Certainly not like a regular wheat.   Meh...
