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.

jsporrer (626) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden straw yellow with a thin white ring. Not much of an aroma and not much wheat flavor. Not as good as I had expected it might be.

sawbuck (625) - 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.

bonkiedeaap (620) - 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.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2008
A fried brought this to a surprise party at our house. Warn and muggy day fit this well. More flavor than the standard beers that people bring over, a hint of citrus and spice, but not enough character to drink again. Might be a nice step for someone into the WWoCB (wonderful world of craft beers).

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 On tap at cleveland airport. Aroma is unidentifiable spices. Fizzy, fruity with light malt and some off flavor bread and yeast. Odd combinations and not so enjoyable. Over carbonated. Bad choice for last call stuck in cleveland airport.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Gift from Brigadier, thanks! Aroma of subtle banana, lemon, very subtle cherry or other red, berry-like fruit. Pale yellow, with a touch of cloudiness and a thin, white head. Light flavors of lemon and banana and a quick finish with a touch of graininess. Light palate, slightly watery. Quick drinking beer without major flaws.

Percy0103 (614) - MEXICO - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. A semi-cloudy beer with a medium size foamy white head that fades away after a couple of minutes. It has a fruity aroma of wheat, lemon and citrics. Taste is very mild. It has a lot of carbonation and very faint astringency. Very light bodied. Aftertaste is somewhat malty. Very drinkable but very close to a macro.

Tinco (613) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2012
Nothing special. An avarage good wheat beer. Had this late at night so my memory is not that good. Have to revisit this one. Drinkable.
