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.

Very good offering of a wheat beer, with a creamy yet earthy finish a highly drinkable wheat beer

Bought at Krogers on Broadway in North Knoxville. Cloudy yellow. Medium white head. Aroma: Citris, malts, perfume. Flavor: Wheat, orangees, malt. Mellow finish. Not a bad beer, very drinkable but nothing impressive. My limited taste for the Goose has done better. Really, my Scruffy Little City of Knoxville can do better than the Windy City.

Slightly hazy straw color with a wispy white head. Bready malt aroma and big spicy and citrus hop aroma. Light-bodied, creamy mouthful, lifted off the tongue with medium carbonation. Lightly sweet with malt, a touch of hop flavor, finishing dry and enough bitterness to balance. A superb wheat ale. Crisp and refreshing. Perfect for summer.

I think I strained a nostral trying to pull some aroma off this beer. What element of fragrance it does possess is like that of a stale and flavorless orange. If one were to match the flavor you merely need to mix 2 parts Sunny-D with 1 part carbonated water. The palate is sticky and stale. There is an aftertaste similar to that which one would receive from eating a pound of the off-white portion of an orange rind. If I owned a goose, I would rub its nose (or bill) in this beer while saying "come on, Goose, youíre better than this".

I saw this brew on tap at the Fox & Hound chain restaurant in Schaumburg last night, and decided to check it out. It had a slightly darker yellow color, and a quickly dissipating white creamy head. The taste had a short burst of spice, followed by a lot of wheat protein and "graininess". The finish was a dirty/slightly grassy hops kind of thing. It would be a thirst quencher on a hot day, but something you might get tired of real fast.

I found this to be a good tasting beer, despite the low rating. Light, but flavorful, but, by no means overpowering. Perfect for a boatside session on the dock. a thick white head that fades slowly. Color is dissapointing. Pale yellow, not very cloudy as the description suggests. Aroma is wheat, but smells very much like a lager, and also slight citrus. Flavor is also kind of pale to me. Wheat, citrus, faint fruits. Like I said before, it is light, but very quenching. The boys at GI did a good job on this one.

tillmac62 (337) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
BOD 11/23/13. Fairly clear light golden pour with a good head. Well formed lacing and moderate retention. Light nose of lemon with a hint of banana over a touch of clove against a light biscuit sweetness. Light medium body that is smooth. Normal carbonation level with good effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is laid back and a bit weak. Some light tart lemon flavor is predominant with only hints of clove. The finish is clean and somewhat crisp.

Maltser85 (333) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Beer pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Looks to have decent carbonation and pours a decent one and a half finger head. The aroma is light citrus, lemony, a bit grassy. There are notes of wheat as well. The initial taste is a nice pop of carbonation followed by that lemon note which moves across the entire palate. In the middle there is definitely a bitter hop astringency which moves into a nice citrus wheatiness. The beer finishes with a hint of wheat and then some more slight bitterness.

Draft. Somewhat floral aroma. Pretty golden, teeny bit muddied. Easy to drink. Light, crisp but not crackly. A pleasantly delightful surprise.
