COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

First time I’ve been disappointed with a GI product. Poured a cloudy blonde with a healthy head. The aroma was foul, but there wasn’t much of it so I’ll give them some points there. Flavor was sweet with bananas and a little malt. Just not much there.

An average American wheat ale. Watery tasting with an average palate. I need to try this again as I’ve recently become more interested in wheat ales and some of the Goose Island I’ve had over the past 6 months has actually been pretty good.

Little aroma with decent color, this American Wheat is a good ’gateway’ beer, owing to the popularity of Goose Island in the US. Not a bad interpretation of the style...the only problem is, this style is just lacking compared to the German and Belgian Wheats it’s derived from.

weitz15 (403) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Aroma of wheat and hops. Flavor consists of earthy citrus, wheat malts, and a slightly hoppy finish. A good beer, but nothing unique here.

When poured the beer looks to be unfiltered. Hazy straw like color with lots of floating sediment. Citrusy lemon nose. Mildly carbonated and dry, with notes of lemon and grass flavors, and a touch of hops in the finish. An okay beer/wheat.

Piw (401) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2015
355ml Flasche. Leicht trüb und golden. Kleine Schaumkrone. Sehr wässrig, wenig aromatisch. Geht leicht runter, mehr nicht.

bottled. pours pale golden with an average white head. smells of citrus and herb and grass. it is lightly sweet and light bodied. not much finish. reminds me of bud light wheat more than a craft wheat.

badwhale (396) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle to sampler cup. Pours a light yellow, clear & sparse head. Watery and basic. Seems they brew this to compete with macrobrew wheats like blue moon & shocktop. Meh.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2011
Light sweetness, and a little bit of bitterness. Little taste and aroma to detect at all, I had expected more. Colour is somewhat yellow, it pours a small white head. (355 ml bottle)
