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: JUN 6, 2006 weak in flavor. not a pleasant after taste. I think this is the only Goose Island I have never not been happy with.

There is a lot of hype about this beer, since Iím next to the 312 area code, but there isnít too much to back it up for me. It is slightly too light, slightly too muddled, slightly complex and not much else. I guess it has a pleasant taste and is easy to drink, in the summer that is.

Tasted from the bottle @Harley, Sheffield, on 04/11/2012. Pours of hazy straw colour, with a good snowy white head that quickly dissapears. Aroma is not very intense, having a dominant malty&caramelt sweet character. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and high carbonated. Taste is zesty&acidic upfront, following by herbal, slightly sweet tones. Aftertaste is intense and very citrusy. In short, too sweet, to my personal taste. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Keg at The Banshee. Hazy golden with a half inch head that dissipates to a thin but lasting foam. Light lacing. Pretty nice looking pint. Aroma is poor, with mostly grapey cellar must and light lemony and grassy notes. Taste has a balance of light lemony bitterness, light-medium wheat flavor and a very light sour note. Lingering what aftertaste on a lively carbonated light-medium body. Not a great beer, but barring the aroma, fine and drinkable.

Average beer weak taste over all. still far better then a normal commercial American beer such as Bud or Miller. Golden in color decent balance, weak head that leaves early on.

7/20/13 drank out front purchased for tomorrow's "hang out" with Shannon's childhood friend. Went and got this beer ($2.99)after replacing Ken's Yards beer with a "summer something from Goose Island". As for the beer...who cares nothing memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Hazy pale gold. Very fizzy. Wheaty aroma. Not a lot of character in the taste. Slightly sour aftertaste. It is a decent beer - especially when you need a thirst quencher.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Bottle. This is very light. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is kind of plain just some very mild citrus. Flavor isn’t bland but it is rather boring. Smooth and drinkable but I doubt I’ll drink it again.

Aroma is wheaty and a little pungent. Pours cloudy pale with a thin white head. Taste is pleasant and sweet.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Typically, Iíll turn away from things labled "wheat." But this is light golden in color, a light but thick enough head, and a mild nose, with a hint of fruits. Easy drinking and flavorful.
