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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy golden color. A rocky two-finger white head is formed; it doesn’t have the best retention by any means. S: Bland. Touches of lemon esters augment some faint noble hopping...and that’s about it. T: It starts with a bit of lemon, and ends with wheat malt flavors. This is really damn bland, though hardly a bad brew. M: A bit too chalky on the palate - as such, it’s not as drinkable as it could be. O: Did I mention bland? Yeah. It’s completely inoffensive though, so this wouldn’t be a bad choice if the only other offerings were BMC (wait a minute...)

Murky gold/brown with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, wheat. Taste is sweet with a light bitter finish. Thin oily texture, medium carbonation. Nice.

Drank with Bram 29-04-2015. Mediocre beer. Tasteless beer, watery, slightly bitter, but doesn’t have much on it.

Gangstergafje (133) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Nice yellow color and a little cloudy appearance. The head is white but is small. The smell is minimal. There is a little sweetness in the distance. The taste is also not very special. It is better than regular beer however. It is more sweet and has a little more flavor. There is a little flavor in the finish, maybe a hint of almonds and raisins?

Completely inoffensive. Not a bad beer just not that interesting. A good beer for a summer BBQ if you have friends who like lighter beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold, easy drinking, sweet, and grassy. Had in pint can at a NASL game. Was glad to pull this rather than macro crap.

Patjeadam (69) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
Very refreshing smell, a bit sweet, little fruity. First sip is really good. Nice balance between the wheat and hops. A little banana, a little pear, very well made. Love the design on the bottle btw. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

dandeman (619) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Léger ressenti de blé avec quelques notes citronnées. Olfactif discret. De couleur blanche, brouillée avec une petite mousse effervescente et éphémère. Une attaque légèrement citronnée aux notes de pain et de blé, avec une texture assez aqueuse. Le corps est mince. L’effervescence active et piquante. A part les notes de céréales qui donnent parfois l’impression de boire une pilsner, il n’y a pas grand chose à se mettre sous la dent.
