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.

Pours a light hazy gold. The aroma is wheat and maybe some spicy citrus. The taste is American wheat and really not much more.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours cloudy/hazy straw yellow - mild citrus nose. A confusing cross between wheat and pale ale. Crisp finish. OK.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Cloudy golden color with a small but sustained white head. Wheat and some citrus notes in the aroma. Creamy wheat mouthfeel and flavor. Not great but does the job on a warm day.

weitz15 (383) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Aroma of wheat and hops. Flavor consists of earthy citrus, wheat malts, and a slightly hoppy finish. A good beer, but nothing unique here.

sawbuck (382) - 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.

ordybill (382) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Outstanding scent of hops and citrus Appearance- A great color, resembles a deep copper shade of orange.. Taste- Excellent flavor, wheat beers are one of my favorite styles. This brew has a lot of character with a strong showing of malt, hops, and citrus. Palate- Full body with a slick texture that has a nice long smooth aftertaste.

Bork (381) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Good session-strength wheat beer. Not a lot of flavors but crisp, clean and highly refreshing.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008
Draught at Cabooses, Geneva, Illinois. This hazy pale yellow beer was preferable to the macro lagers available at this railway station bar, but it was served far too cold and not as flavourful as better wheat beers.
