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.

Bottle. Pours a pale, orange gold color with a large white head. No good aroma or taste to note. Notes of orange and bread, but mild and light. A very light tasting wheat ale. Very thin palate

A pale wheat ale. Hints of citrus. Drank cold and went down easy. A little hoppy on the back end but nothing that detracts from the taste. Would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

Pours golden wheat color (go figure) with a small white head. Heavy hay/grass aroma (go figure). Medium sour taste with the very faintest bitter on the back end. Very light beer. Almost nothing to it really. Not a great wheat beer. It fits the bill for being light and refreshing, but itís too light and the refreshing nature is more from just having a cold, slightly carbonated beverage.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 Wow I cannot believe I havenít rated this yet, seeing as its probably the beer I drink more than any others since its always cheap on tap. Very great wheat, which gives way to floral and sweet fruit with an excellent finish.

Pours a straw yellow with a hazy cloud and a thick white head. the aroma is rather weak but i pick up some breadiness and wet grass. the taste is not bitter at all and watered down. other than that there is nothing terrible about the beer, you pick breadiness in the taste. would make a great session beer.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2006
A decent hot-weather American wheat, pours cloudy pale gold, very subtle spicing and watery flavor but thirst-quenching, I consider this an affordable but decent lawnmower beer.

12oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a white fluffy head. Clean, slightly fruity aroma. Taste is very light. Be good after cutting the grass in the summer.

An ok effort. Just letting it sit for a few minutes and warm up made it much worse. All of a sudden got a little woddy flavor to it and then dissipated. For Goose Island, Iím let down.
