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.

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.

sawbuck (464) - 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 (462) - 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.

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.

Pour is a cloudy light yellow with a white head. Nose is rather mild, some light fruit, but mainly dominated by the wheat, taste is very similar.
