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.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 Poured from a 12oz bottle, the color is golen wheat. Very cloudy, but in this brew the haziness enhances the color. Sweet aromas on this one. Lemongrass, apples, pears, with some maltiness. This beer is pretty thin and light bodied. While the mouth is fairly creamy, the finish is somewhat soft and weak.

Honey yellow color with no head. Aroma is wheaty with a bit of hops and lemon. Mouthfeel is very creamy, much more so than I anticipated. Semi-spicy wheat flavors abound. Solid but unspectular ale from a great brewery.

DMLINAZ (303) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2013
This is my wifeís auntís favorite beer and itís suited to her taste. I find it pretty inoffensive and easy going. Not much aroma. Just some slight lemon and grass and wheat. Fairly low carbonation and creamy mouthfeel makes this easy to drink. Flavor is slight lemon, wheat, some malt.

OzarkElmo (301) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy golden with moderate white head. Nice unfiltered US wheat beer. Lightly hopped with hints of lemon & orange. Nice, refreshing.

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2008
This was a very disappointing outing from Goose Island. Had on tap. Yellow color with little head. Pretty watery with little flavor.

BrianHagmeier (299) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Pours a straw color with a small, frothy head. Aromas are bready with some sour mash notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Tastes the same as it smells.

jehoesefat (299) - Poway, California, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Aroma is wheaty and a little pungent. Pours cloudy pale with a thin white head. Taste is pleasant and sweet.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Tap. Cloudy pale yellow color. Foamy white head. Aroma of wheat and coriander, and wintergreen. Flavors matched, with zesty lemon notes and a slight bitter tone on the finish.

Pleasant but not particularly impressive. Very easy to drink but rather bland, flavorless.

This was my firsting whack at a Goose Island product. Hopefully the rest of their line will turn out to be better than this one. Not a bad tasting beer but really no outstanding qualiities. Pretty much an average wheat, definitely not worth the premium price you pay for it.
