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.

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.

Bottle. Not that great. Unimpressive, miller lightish appearance and pour, maybe a tad more golden. Not by any means unappealing, just nothing unique or special. Barely a wheat beer, saved by a hay / straw flavor with a moderate to strong citrus presence. My wife loves it.

surprisingly found this beer in a Turkish kebab shop in southgate quite enjoyed it a really good hoppy beer that has a nice bitter finish that makes it a quite easy beer to drink on a nice hot day

Quick-review: Unclear, light yellow with a shade of green. Plain smell, alitlle malt, but not much. Taste of malt, alittle fruity. Boring.

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours a tad hazy, good head, nose of citrus wheat. A bit sweet and fruity, but very easy to drink for and unfiltered wheat. The body is not a thick as you would expect from an unfiltered. One step up from say a Blue Moon.

There arenít too many Wheat Ales I donít like, but this one is a refreshing beer that is just an easy going drink.

ttroha (266) - Americus, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Americus Package. Hazy gold in color with white head. Aroma of citrus. Taste of hops, wheat and a bitter aftertaste. Decent cheap beer

Maltser85 (263) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Beer pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Looks to have decent carbonation and pours a decent one and a half finger head. The aroma is light citrus, lemony, a bit grassy. There are notes of wheat as well. The initial taste is a nice pop of carbonation followed by that lemon note which moves across the entire palate. In the middle there is definitely a bitter hop astringency which moves into a nice citrus wheatiness. The beer finishes with a hint of wheat and then some more slight bitterness.

wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - APR 10, 2010
Pours hazy straw pale with a small head that quickly diminishes. Nose is fruity with currant in background. Flavor is a bit cidery with a dry bitter finish. Not so much of a wheat ale but still drinkable.
