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.

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.

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.

ewestern (256) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
A cloudy pale yellow beer with a decent white that manages to leave some good lacing. Sweet aroma of wheat, apricot and oranges. So far the beer gushes cool refreshing summer beer. Light citrus flavor and wheat. Mild carbonation hits the tongue and the beer finishes with a light citrusy wheat bite at the end. There is not much to this beer but it is easily drinkable and enjoyable.

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.

Pours a hazy Budweiser yellow with a white head. Nose is citrus. Body is light. Palate is wheat with hops and a lingering bitter aftertaste.

On tap at Clybourn: Soft yellow. Thin, and not remarkable. Nice citrusy tang. A little bit of funk? Not as bad as some say. Weird label. Thanks to Ma Beth.

I used to like this one, but then realized it was not all that good. It is a watered down american wheat. If you like the style of american wheat then this might be okay for you. The malts just did not come through for me.
