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.

Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Very much a summer session beer. Has light piney aroma with lemony notes. Taste is both citrusy and bready but very light. Thin in body. Nice malt flavors in finish. No much tartness from the wheat.

33 cL bottle at home, bought at the COOP. Pours a bit hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma has a little bit of citrus, wheat and some hops. Taste is sweet with a little bit of citrus and malts, not much else going on. Medium body and carbo.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold with small white head. Light citrus, easy drinking, clean taste with no discernible wheat traits. Harmless enough.

ralphdot (1007) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
4.2% very pale yellow cloudy beer with a thin head, not much aroma at all and not a lot of taste although it was bitter and fruity and not too bad.

Smaakloos. Heel licht biertje met 4,2 %. Lichte citroenachtige smaak maar verder karakterloos.

mutz (691) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Flesje van de AH. Troebel, gele kleur, weinig schuim. Aroma van hop, licht citrusfruit, mout. Smaakt vooral waterig, licht bitter met een beetje citrusvrucht. Als ik de reclametekst hierboven lees dan heb ik het idee dat ik het verkeerde bier geproefd heb

caesar (5636) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from local Jumbo, dated 26Jan15 BB 26Jan16, large sample. Hazy golden color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of some grainy malt, slight citrus, hint of spicy yeast, wheat. Slight citrussy bitterness. Bit cardboard. Some bitter tonic notes, juniper. Boring stuff. Thoroughly deserving its low rating.

katrinaez (399) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Not bad but fat from great if you are going with a wheat beer. The aroma is decent but the flavor is lacking. I realize itís American wheat but still lacking. Tap.

Icedwarf (598) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Licht troebel lichtgeel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en fruitig met iets van appel en rozijnen. Verder erg waterig, smaak blijft niet lang hangen. Goed voor dorstlesser echter weinig smaak.

Franksv6 (448) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Gold colored beer with a small white head, medium carbonation. Taste is a little disappointing, watery, wheat, some citrus. Sweet and slightly bitter aftertaste.

MrHangover (3097) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden beer with a decent sized white head on top. Aroma is zesty, citric, fairly bready and malty. Flavour is bitter, some citric notes and quite bland, yet very refreshing. Good carbonation, decent body and an overall decent beer.
