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.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 On tap, Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a light white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of citrus, lemon, wheat and coriander. Tastes of all the same things with a slight clove flavor and sourness. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with a semi dry finish. Overall It?s not a bad wheat beer but nothing special either.

Goose Island describes this beer saying it is loaded with character and I have to disagree. Although the beer itself is quite drinkable and refreshing, it is as basic as a white girl in yoga pants ordering a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. Slight wheat presence with a golden color and medium head, this is a beer to chug down after a hot summer day without thinking too much about it.

Was not creamy at all, as was suggested in the description. It was mild, and not too bitter from the hops. I wasn’t able to assess the color, so I’m basing my rating on the appearance of the bottle. It wasn’t very strong which I particularly liked about the beer.

Semi hazy yellow liquid, small head. Weak aroma of yeast. Light body, tiny little bit carbonation. Taste is sour, bitter, and overall weak.

355ml brown bottle, unfiltered (though with no sediment) from local Co-Op. This is a pleasant wheat beer, though it has a watery texture. There’s a modest spice, and a gentle Cascade fragrance. It’s quite dry and lager like. I would have preferred more body, more sweetness, and more overall character. The hops were OK for me, adding .a light tropical note to what is intended to be a refreshing drink. Yeah, I could drink this again.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Robe blonde, fine mousse. Nez assez basique, farine, fruit jaunes, pointe d’agrumes. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, du fruit, de la fraîcheur, mais un certain manque de complexité et de profondeur. Agréable sans plus.

psilosophy (679) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - SEP 13, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl, couleur jaune pale, mousse moyenne, aucune tenue. A part des arômes de paic citron, je n’ ai rien trouvé d’ autres. Carbonnation faible. Je conçois que la bouteille a peut être subie une avarie mais en l’ état rien d’ intéressant. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Canned at Tim Can. Pretty average. Mostly malt but lacks crispness. Not a fan.
