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.

Colour is a bit anaemic, with a rather insipid froth to the head. The typical range of spicy/citrusy flavours with a quite clear, tart finish. Nothing special but certainly pleasurable.

Una cerveza muy suave pero para la gente que quiere aprender este tipo de sabor que es tan diferente a las lager me parece una buena opcion pues tiene muy poco amargor

cervmagpt (622) - PORTUGAL - JUN 1, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 1D). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: low grainy and slight doughy aroma. slight malt sweetness. faint citrusy hop note. APPEARANCE: pale yellow color and slightly hazy. small white head with poor retention. TASTE: low grainy malt flavor with slight cardboard notes. medium-low to low bitterness. no hop flavors PALATE: medium-low to low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an american wheat ale that lost its charm maybe due to be at the end of its Best Before date.

Hazy, pale yellow color. Medium-sized , white head . Aroma of malt , apricots , peach , orange. Sweet , malty taste . High carbonation . Not bad, but flavor is too weak and carbonation too high.

beer_rookie (331) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Pours a yellow color. About one finger white head. A little cloudy, not as much as I would have expected. Okay retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is slightly lemony. Its bready. Bran flakes? Not a lot going on. Smells like water. Everything about the aroma is faint.

Taste is lemony, bready, watery. It has a bit of grit to it. Thereís not a lot to it. Slightly bitter, I think more bitter than 18 IBUs.

Mouthfeel is light body. Itís so light, and would make a great summer beer. Itís quite dry. That bitterness lingers. Bit.

Overall, itís not that great. There are tons of better wheat beers out there. I would drink it again. But Iím not going to rush out and buy it again. I would recommend this as a summertime, hot day beer, but necessarily for my own cooler. But hey, I do recommend you give this a try, because then youíll have a better appreciation for better wheat beers.

VAYankee (344) - Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Somewhat hazy, orange-yellow with fine effervescence and no head. Aroma includes grains, oranges, yeast. Soft, slightly sour and somewhat grainy. Soft carbonation, light body. This is a pretty forgettable beer.

jrodooo5 (1440) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Plain & ordinary wheat that is quite forgettable. It pours & smells decent but as I find with most wheats, thereís just not enough flavor profile or substance to make this very good. Itís not terribly flawed but just not my cup of tea!

sir__v (1859) - Lille, FRANCE - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle from Hakim, thanks - Color: cloudy pale blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: nice fruity domination. Peach and apricot nose. Small yogourt finish. Taste: light medium body with sweet malt and sweet cereal. Balanced with fruity as peach and apricot. Sweet finish. Cereals. good attenuation and really drinkable. Yoghurt notes. Aftertaste: sweet apricot and yoghurt.

Thnx to the representive ( yes, apparently GI has a representive now in BE, as they will soon start to import this brewery in Belgium. Of course, nothing like BCBS, only this type of... beer... ) Pours rather unclear blonde, not much head, and it fades instantly. Smell is weak. Taste is very weak. Slightly metallic maltyness, some corn-flake taste, but overall very very tasteless and wattery. Not sure how this would be a convincing beer to anyoneís palate. I can see people drinking loads of this, but not for itís taste, more like a lager-style of drinking.
