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.

Bottle.<!-- br --> Pours a light yellow with a large head that quickly disapates leaving decent lacing. Nose is light, bready with a very thin fruity component. Flavor is watered down, somewhat skunky, apple juice. Itís not undrinkable, just not something to be seeking out.

Beautiful pour of orange fog with a nice foamy head that lasts. Smells light and a hint of citrus. Taste is real smooth and light, but not a lot there.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 29, 2010
On tap. A - Hazed, pale gold color with an average sized, whispy, creamy, frothy, tight, pearl white head. Decent retention with a thin layer of lace. S - Nice tart lemony aroma with some grassy and banana hints as well. Good amount of malted wheat aroma gives it a base. Pretty well spiced but nothing too strong. Pretty typical for the style. T - Pretty nice, refreshing taste. Wheat and grainy base are nice and provide a lot of the flavor. A good level of lemon rind, grass/lemongrass, spice and just a hint of banana. Pretty zesty/tart for the style, but balanced out by the wheat flavor. M - Light body with very nice carbonation. Quite creamy and goes down very smooth. D - Very easy to drink, smooth, refreshing beer. Has enough zest and spice to keep it interesting and have me coming back for more. Notes: Very nice pale wheat beer that is quite refreshing. Good summertime, thirst quencher. Also has a good amount of spice, zest, and hints of hops to kick up the wheat a bit.

...light straw yellow color, a little wheat and bananna on the nose. Low carbonation. Flavor of wheat, with awatery finish. Was looking for something more here but, oh well, nothing special. Finished watery, with a hint of wheat, and nothig else. Wonít buy again.

Pint on tap at OíHare airport. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aromas of orange lemon and a bit of wheat and straw. Flavor is very clean wheat with some lingering citrus. Body is light with a dry feel. Finish leaves the usual wheat flavor behind

Iím kind of surprised the ratings are so low on this. Iím not a big fan of wheat ales by any means but this one seemed to have a few things going for it that others in they style have failed for me. For one thing the pour was nice with a large white head that actually lasted for once, nice lacing on the glass. The aroma while light of hay and straw also provided a slight fruity sweetness that was inviting. The taste is light and crisp in the mouth with yeast and wheat combining for a light doughy taste, really it was almost pastry-like due to the subtle fruity sweetness this beer provides. Lastly, the bitch actually had some hops to speak of and left you with a decent finish considering the style. Very well blanced in my opinion between the wheat and yeast you would expect, as well as a touch of fruit and hops. Not bad and very refreshing to boot. This one is underrated if you ask me.

The bottle poured a hazy pale yellow beverage with a small smooth white head that lasted well and left decent lacing on the glass. The aroma presented a spicy blend of hop aroma with citrus and earthy tones lurking in the background. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a somewhat dry texture. The flavor started off tart and watery. It had a medium finish with a tart, somewhat dry character leaving a clean mouthfeel.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A fresh citrus aroma. The clear yellow beer has a medium white head. A sweet taste, citrus and grains. Medium carbonated.
