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.

Typically, Iíll turn away from things labled "wheat." But this is light golden in color, a light but thick enough head, and a mild nose, with a hint of fruits. Easy drinking and flavorful.

Aroma is light, wheat heavy. Appearance is a piss yellow, clear. Taste is what it is: light, wheat beer. The mouthfeel is meh; carbonated, but not so much. Overall, itís forgettable, but better than a Budweiser.

Bottle. Not that great. Unimpressive, miller lightish appearance and pour, maybe a tad more golden. Not by any means unappealing, just nothing unique or special. Barely a wheat beer, saved by a hay / straw flavor with a moderate to strong citrus presence. My wife loves it.

Quick-review: Unclear, light yellow with a shade of green. Plain smell, alitlle malt, but not much. Taste of malt, alittle fruity. Boring.

Pours a tad hazy, good head, nose of citrus wheat. A bit sweet and fruity, but very easy to drink for and unfiltered wheat. The body is not a thick as you would expect from an unfiltered. One step up from say a Blue Moon.

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.

Stuedmaster (268) - 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.

There arenít too many Wheat Ales I donít like, but this one is a refreshing beer that is just an easy going drink.

wkalle (263) - SWEDEN - APR 10, 2010
Pours hazy straw pale with a small head that quickly diminishes. Nose is fruity with currant in background. Flavor is a bit cidery with a dry bitter finish. Not so much of a wheat ale but still drinkable.

A cloudy pale yellow beer with a decent white that manages to leave some good lacing. Sweet aroma of wheat, apricot and oranges. So far the beer gushes cool refreshing summer beer. Light citrus flavor and wheat. Mild carbonation hits the tongue and the beer finishes with a light citrusy wheat bite at the end. There is not much to this beer but it is easily drinkable and enjoyable.
