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.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2011
Light sweetness, and a little bit of bitterness. Little taste and aroma to detect at all, I had expected more. Colour is somewhat yellow, it pours a small white head. (355 ml bottle)

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a little white head. Not much lacing. Wheat smell but not overally aromatic. Lacked in flavor and was little more tart than other wheats Iíve had.

badwhale (391) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle to sampler cup. Pours a light yellow, clear & sparse head. Watery and basic. Seems they brew this to compete with macrobrew wheats like blue moon & shocktop. Meh.

Goblincat (386) - Westland, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Pours a light hazy gold. The aroma is wheat and maybe some spicy citrus. The taste is American wheat and really not much more.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours cloudy/hazy straw yellow - mild citrus nose. A confusing cross between wheat and pale ale. Crisp finish. OK.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Aroma: slight tropical fruit and grainy aromas
Appearance: light yellow, small head
Flavor: tropical fruit flavors, slight hoppy with strong grainy aftertaste followed by mild fruitness like an apple cider
Palate: very smooth and carbonated--like Sprite or Ginger Ale sodas

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Cloudy golden color with a small but sustained white head. Wheat and some citrus notes in the aroma. Creamy wheat mouthfeel and flavor. Not great but does the job on a warm day.
