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.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at Chigaco Midway airport. Consumed two, served in frosty pint glasses, around 12pm. Aroma was barely noticable, but some hops and graininess present. Had a light yellow color but strangely hazy appearance. The flavors were more like a rather intense pilsner or helles, not anything too reminiscent of wheat. I enjoyed this beer thoroughly, I was surprised by how much flavor and delicate bready graininess it possessed. I ordered this one because it was the only "local brew" on the menu. Thatís what the servers told me anyway. It was pretty dang good, I wish I could get my hands on it, Iíd like to get a few six packs to work on...

Very cloudy - too cloudy. Too yeasty - covered up the wheat flavor. A little spice and citrus.

DWestrick (467) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 decent wheat beer by Goose Island. lemon flavor and bitter. Semi-cloudy and kind of generic compared to other goose island beers. not that impressed

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Hazy golden pour. Light aroma with hints of tangerine. A bit fizzy on the palate, with flavors of melon, orange, and yeast. A bit light on character, but arenít most non-Gumballhead American wheats? Certainly drinkable.

bellco33 (464) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 15, 2014
On tap at Little Markís: Pours slightly hazy golden with a two-finger white head. Aroma of cereal malts, corn, and wheat. Taste is very mild, more cereal malts, a little bitterness from hops, but very smooth. Light body, nice carbonation, very drinkable, but nothing that stands out. Very tame beer, but thereís nothing offensive about it. Safe is the keyword. This is something Iíd recommend to someone that doesnít like beer.

Tsekouratos (463) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - MAY 30, 2014
355 ml bottle at The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Yellow golden color, slightly hazy, white thick head. Aromas of yeast and spices. Sweet taste, malts, yeast, some sweet fruits, maybe some bread. Sweet aftertaste, sticky-oily mouthfeel. Light body with medium carbonation.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, first time rating it on ratebeer, have had it on tap in Chicago. I donít smell most the aromas since I am sick. A very, very good wheat beer. A very well balanced beer not overpowering in any category.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2012
Very light aroma of malt and some yeast. Taste is dissapointing, there should be more of everything here. Itís taste like a mixture of a industrial lager mixed with 1/3 of a wheat beer. Goose Island usually make better beer.
