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.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Pours a cloudy light gold in color. About a half inch of head on the pour, but it’s quickly gone. Smell is spicy, but off slightly. Taste is hoppy, but rather BMC’ish. Highly carbonated in the mouthfeel. Refreshing, but not good enough to warrant another purchase.

sawbuck (601) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours a pale, cloudy yellow. Sweet aroma. Light white head that settles quickly. First taste is sweet, citurs...more on the lemon side. Finishes with a faint not of hops...cleanly. Usually not a fan of wheat but this one is o.k.

arondee (599) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Pours a light yellow with a thick white head. The aroma is wheat, lemons, and fresh cut grass. The taste is slightly funky off-tasting wheat (not too bad), lemon, and water. Pretty inoffensive wheat beer. Easy to drink a lot of these. Not all that great, a little boring, a little funky from the wheat going bad, nothing special.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Bottle.<!-- br --> Pours a light yellow with a large head that quickly disapates leaving decent lacing. Nose is light, bready with a very thin fruity component. Flavor is watered down, somewhat skunky, apple juice. Itís not undrinkable, just not something to be seeking out.

brigg (598) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2012
(bottle) Cloudy, pale gold body with a small white head. Pale malt and straw aroma, light spice and yeast. Body is light and bubbly. Pale malt flavor, lemon, a little watery, light bitterness.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 29, 2010
On tap. A - Hazed, pale gold color with an average sized, whispy, creamy, frothy, tight, pearl white head. Decent retention with a thin layer of lace. S - Nice tart lemony aroma with some grassy and banana hints as well. Good amount of malted wheat aroma gives it a base. Pretty well spiced but nothing too strong. Pretty typical for the style. T - Pretty nice, refreshing taste. Wheat and grainy base are nice and provide a lot of the flavor. A good level of lemon rind, grass/lemongrass, spice and just a hint of banana. Pretty zesty/tart for the style, but balanced out by the wheat flavor. M - Light body with very nice carbonation. Quite creamy and goes down very smooth. D - Very easy to drink, smooth, refreshing beer. Has enough zest and spice to keep it interesting and have me coming back for more. Notes: Very nice pale wheat beer that is quite refreshing. Good summertime, thirst quencher. Also has a good amount of spice, zest, and hints of hops to kick up the wheat a bit.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2013
...light straw yellow color, a little wheat and bananna on the nose. Low carbonation. Flavor of wheat, with awatery finish. Was looking for something more here but, oh well, nothing special. Finished watery, with a hint of wheat, and nothig else. Wonít buy again.

bonkiedeaap (594) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
355ml bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is hazy yellow colored and pours a small and unstable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma has clear tones of spices, wheat, hops and some fruity notes. The taste is light bodied and smooth. Tones of honey and wheat are also noticable and a light hint of hops, but further very watery. The finish is watery, soft and light bitter. Pretty boring beer, but the smooth taste made it a little drinkable.

Gangstergafje (593) - 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?

Pours a cloudy golden yellow...aroma is faint, lightly citrusy. Flavor is quite citrusy...lemongrass and banana. Very light. Pretty decent though.
