COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Hazy Yellow with a soapy head, high carbonation and decent lacing. Smells like cereal grains, wheat, pale malts, grassiness, and some slight floral hops. Taste is mostly cereal grains, pale malts, some slight wheat notes and mild earthiness. Body feels a bit heavy with some rather strong carbonation. Quite disappointing, tastes more like a Bud than a Wheat Beer.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Hazy golden wheat beer. Nice wit style beer but nothing to write home about- understated (by which I mean a little bland) but immensely drinkable because of this. Leaves a nice coating afterwards though so helps with the mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hamirubi (517) - 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.

Tayeth (515) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
Bier riecht süßlich und schwach nach Pfirsich. Im Geschmack dann Pfirsich und Esskastanien. Insgesamt aber relativ wässrig.

ChiGuy68 (513) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden yellow with good carbonation and a white, bubbly, quickly dissipating head. Moderate aroma and taste of wheat and malt.

Very dissapointing from such a good brewer. It does look unfiltered. But unfiltered what grass and lemon? I brought this home all the way from chicago?

trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 On tap, Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a light white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of citrus, lemon, wheat and coriander. Tastes of all the same things with a slight clove flavor and sourness. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy with a semi dry finish. Overall It?s not a bad wheat beer but nothing special either.

tfontana (505) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle from Foods Plus Plaistow NH. Aroma is faintly yeasty. Appearance is pale gold and hazy. It produced no head. Like the aroma, the taste is faint and slightly sweet--mainly as a finish. Light to medium body that is basically flat like day-old beer until burst of lively carbonation at the end. There’s nothing offensive about this beer but there is nothing to recommend it. It would probably go down smooth on a hot summer day and would be easy to have more than one.
