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.

Little aroma with decent color, this American Wheat is a good ’gateway’ beer, owing to the popularity of Goose Island in the US. Not a bad interpretation of the style...the only problem is, this style is just lacking compared to the German and Belgian Wheats it’s derived from.

An average American wheat ale. Watery tasting with an average palate. I need to try this again as Iíve recently become more interested in wheat ales and some of the Goose Island Iíve had over the past 6 months has actually been pretty good.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2006
When poured the beer looks to be unfiltered. Hazy straw like color with lots of floating sediment. Citrusy lemon nose. Mildly carbonated and dry, with notes of lemon and grass flavors, and a touch of hops in the finish. An okay beer/wheat.

sawbuck (401) - 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.

Brandon1989 (401) - Euless, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pours a straw yellow with a hazy cloud and a thick white head. the aroma is rather weak but i pick up some breadiness and wet grass. the taste is not bitter at all and watered down. other than that there is nothing terrible about the beer, you pick breadiness in the taste. would make a great session beer.

Good session-strength wheat beer. Not a lot of flavors but crisp, clean and highly refreshing.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2006
sampled at columbus alefest. pours hazy yellow with a small head. little to no aroma with just a hint of fruityness. wheat flavor, subtle spiceness and little hoppyness. overall, a bland wheat, but would be refreshing on a hot day.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2010
bottled. pours pale golden with an average white head. smells of citrus and herb and grass. it is lightly sweet and light bodied. not much finish. reminds me of bud light wheat more than a craft wheat.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2011
Light sweetness, and a little bit of bitterness. Little taste and aroma to detect at all, I had expected more. Colour is somewhat yellow, it pours a small white head. (355 ml bottle)

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a little white head. Not much lacing. Wheat smell but not overally aromatic. Lacked in flavor and was little more tart than other wheats Iíve had.
