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.

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

Fine looking beer. Aroma wise it has that unmistakable unfiltered wheaty/bready essence. Other than that not much. Light to maybe just under Medium bodied. Which was a let down. Flavour wise some initial punch of soft fruit but almost no follow through. Drink and forget.

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy yellow, thin white head. Aroma of light cloves, flowers and wheat. Initial taste of wheat, then some fruit and finishes with some bread. Crisp, light to medium body. Good summer easy drinking brew.

Aaaand this is the most overrated micro to macro brew of all time. Totally flavorless carbonated swill. Give it as a gift to someone you donít want to remotely impress.

TomTron (423) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2013
A hazy yellow beer, with a thin white head. Aromas of bananas, lemon zest and yeast.The flavor is a bit of the same but is extremely bland. Iím not the biggest fan of hefeís or any wheat ales for that matter, but this one doesnít really do anything for me. Itís just a drinkable brew with not much going for it.

Malaclemys (421) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours cloudy gold. Aroma of bread and slight citrus. Taste follows orange, bready, little flavor. Light body not much flavor more like a lager. Meh.

This isnít too bad of a wheat beer. Not very citrusy, but it still has some fruity flavors. Very full bodied.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Poured a nice hazy gold colr with a tight golden head and some fizzy bubbles in itís own weizen style glass. A small yeasty nose. Fairly bland wheat flavor, but really decent mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great. Worth trying if your in the mood for a wheat.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2010
Pours light hazy yellow with a moderately sized white head. Aroma is light wheat character, Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts off with smooth wheat character - not much else at the beginning. The finish is prickly and somewhat metallic.

bigda83 (420) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft. Poured a clear straw yellow with little head. Aroma was almost non-existant with mild fruit notes. Flavor was peach, straw, and almost had a belgian taste to it. Light body, think texture, bubbly carbonation, smooth finish. Just not good.
