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.

Zupastan (153) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2015
35,5 cl bottle @ home. Clear light orange beer with a small, white head that vanishes quickly, non adhesive. Aroma is wet grains, bread, lemons. Very soft carbonation. Taste is grains, sugary, quite sweet, lemony, corn, very watery. Aftertaste is dry, bready, rotten wheat.

Nothing special. Has some sediment but it's a wheat beer. Not bad, but nothing stands out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AndresTM (394) - Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Light crackers, lime zest, white bread, and fresh, slightly citrusy hops. Very serviceable mouthfeel, slightly silky and well-carbonated. The taste is mildly bitter, with clean biscuity and citrusy flavors leading to a dry finish. Refreshing.

33cl bottle. Hazy pale golden colour with a thin white head. Wheat, light banana, citrus and hoppy aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is sweet with some yeasty and citrus notes. Overall, a nice beer.

erickok (4460) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2015
In a way exactly as expected. Wheat, American, light haze, light sweet, short ending with some bready character. But itís well made I have to say, enjoyed drinking this. (Bottle from Albert Heijn Leuven)

12 oz bottle poured at United club at Dulles airport. Pretty standard fare. Little bit of citrus smell and taste. Easy to drink for sure.

TrefwoordPunk (850) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2015
bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head and an aroma of white bread, dough, metal and something sweet. The taste is mildly sweet, with some slight bitterness and metal in the finish. a pretty forgettible beer.
