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.

Norton (329) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft. Somewhat floral aroma. Pretty golden, teeny bit muddied. Easy to drink. Light, crisp but not crackly. A pleasantly delightful surprise.

Cimbasso (328) - - DEC 18, 2014
Sampled from a bottle in Chicago. A hazy pale golden colour with a thin white head. Lots of good hop aromas. The taste is quite tart and fruity, with hints of honey. Not much bitterness in the taste. A good thirst quencher, quite mild flavours and just a little bland.

tykechandler (319) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 29, 2010
citrusy and fruity with a decent body. it is actually very drinkable and crisp, but it lacks character. a good summer/session brew for those lacking a bit of imagination or motivation.

zapprentice (314) - East Setauket, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is similar, with some citrus fruit. Not much to this beer but not bad for drinking for refreshment.

timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Ar: Lemon and belgian yeast Ap: Slightly hazy pale gold - weak fizzy head that quickly diminishes T: Slightly sour due to lemon, wheat comes through - light and refreshing P: Lively carbonation and thin body - again, refreshing O: Nice beer to have on a hot Chicago summer day

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle 355ml at Beer2000. Hazy pale yellow with small white head. Faint aroma of wheat, bread. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Light to medium body, thin, soft carbonation. Disappointed.

N3lson1 (312) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, first time rating it on ratebeer, have had it on tap in Chicago. I donít smell most the aromas since I am sick. A very, very good wheat beer. A very well balanced beer not overpowering in any category.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Never been a fan of the style, they always taste amd smell like sweat to me. Not too bad, and more than once it has been the best option at a 7-11 or dive bar. Local pride is the main reason to drink this. I prefer the barley when I am drinking lighter stuff.
