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.

Pours a straw color with a small, frothy head. Aromas are bready with some sour mash notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Tastes the same as it smells.

This was a very disappointing outing from Goose Island. Had on tap. Yellow color with little head. Pretty watery with little flavor.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Tap. Cloudy pale yellow color. Foamy white head. Aroma of wheat and coriander, and wintergreen. Flavors matched, with zesty lemon notes and a slight bitter tone on the finish.

Pours a hazy Budweiser yellow with a white head. Nose is citrus. Body is light. Palate is wheat with hops and a lingering bitter aftertaste.

This was my firsting whack at a Goose Island product. Hopefully the rest of their line will turn out to be better than this one. Not a bad tasting beer but really no outstanding qualiities. Pretty much an average wheat, definitely not worth the premium price you pay for it.

Pleasant but not particularly impressive. Very easy to drink but rather bland, flavorless.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Very good unfiltered wheat. Idk what the urban implies but full flavored citrus notes. Cloudy yellow pour.

dutch23mp (287) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Average beer weak taste over all. still far better then a normal commercial American beer such as Bud or Miller. Golden in color decent balance, weak head that leaves early on.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Grainy and grassy aroma, lightly hopped, very thin mouthfeel, pretty watery finish - this is a clean and crisp beer, I bought it out of interest for the wheat ale element but I find it to be a little bit lighter than I was expecting, arguably a good introductory ale for lager fans looking to broaden their drinking.

Stuedmaster (285) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat and some citrus. Nice snappy, somewhat creamy flavor, you can tell that itís unfiltered. Very refreshing and goes down smooth, an above average wheat beer. Light bodied, lively carbonation, crisp finish.
