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.

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.

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 (618) - 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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/1/2014. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana/clove, wheat, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana/clove. wheat, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt notes; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready/creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Weizen komt in de buurt. Aroma is lychee en wat ander licht zuurzoetigs. Smaak is erg licht, waterig fruit als peren in de aanbieding bij de AH. Ehhhhh.... Laat dit biertje nou net bij de Appie gekocht te zijn. Dat kan beter. Alleen nasmaak is zacht en bevalt wel, smaak plus 1.
