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.

Delivers what it promises. Good refreshing summer beer. I give this one a few bonus points because it put goose island on the map. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly cloudy golden with thin head. Aroma and taste is sweet and malty. A little bready yeast. Bland and boring.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Pours hazy light straw color with a small white head. Faint nose, light fruit and grassy hops. Similar flavor, light and crisp, somewhat hoppy with some lemon and grass. This is an easy to drink beer, would be a little better if the flavors were more prominent.

Pale, hazy yellow with very little white head. Light aroma, some sweetness and a little hops. Crisp flavor has some citrus and grain. Not terrible.

Hamirubi (564) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
35.5cl bottle at home (1 IV 2016), shared with a friend. An unfiltered urban wheat from Goose Island, hazy amber in a glass with frothy foam head. The grains flavours are vast and omnipresent, yet the hoppiness is as strong. Just a great drinker. Think of an american pale ale (APA) with wheat and hops-powered. The bitterness is very short, and the body is light. Other taste sensations are grain and some turf. Even though it is not my favorite style, I love this smooth drinking hoppied wheat ale.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours a hazy straw color. Moderate white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is wheat and tart citrus. Similar flavor. Minimal aftertaste. Very refreshing lawnmower beer.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Pours orange-yellow. Thin wheat flavor with very little body. Refreshing in a sense that it wouldnít be bad on a summer day, but it isnít horribly satisfying.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2009
Draught. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head. Nose of wheat, yeast, fruits, little banana. Initial taste of mild wheat, citrus, banana. Watery body, belove average palate duration, too simple one dimensional not challenged wheat ale. Average head retention and light body. Overall not impressed.

rdb84 (557) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2015
Slightly murky light yellow, very small head. Aroma: large citrus and lime aroma, mixed with a wheaty Weisen aroma. Taste: watery, mostly. Starts crisp and light with hints of citrus and Weisen. Develops a Pilsener like bitterness. Light body. Aftertaste is wheaty. A bit uninspired.
