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. Pours a hazy light straw yellow color with a thin, fizzy head. Light lemon zest and grassy aroma. Flavor is a little lacking, but I can pick up some light traces of wheat and lemon in the finish. Very watery texture with lively carbonation. Refreshing but not the most flavorful offering.

Pours hazy straw with little white head retention. Mild aroma of some bread and hay. Bland and boring.

355ml bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is hazy yellow colored and pours a small and unstable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma has clear tones of spices, wheat, hops and some fruity notes. The taste is light bodied and smooth. Tones of honey and wheat are also noticable and a light hint of hops, but further very watery. The finish is watery, soft and light bitter. Pretty boring beer, but the smooth taste made it a little drinkable.

12oz Bottle. Appearance is hazy, golden yellow color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is grainy and herbal, somewhat medicinal. Taste is mostly malt, some wheaty grains, herbal hops, kind of medicinal. Palate is medium-bodied, somewhat thin texture, average carbonation, and a semi-dry finish. Blah.

i was a little let down with this one. this wheat beer was clear. the beer is not filtered but it is over centrifuged! missing the yeast taste.

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.

bhops (433) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2009
bottle. Pours yellow and flat. Aroma of some hay, grass, wheat. Flavor is some spice, wheat, apple, understated. Thin and fizzy, not that great.

330 ml bottle. In general a nicely wheat-characterized late-summer beer, but I think this one tastes a little too sweet.
