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.

An aggressively average beer, pouring golden yellow into my chilled glass with a substantial white head. The flavor is a malty wheat blandness with the merest hint of a hoppy follow through.

Bottle at Navy Pier. Pours a light opaque color typical of a wheat ale. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy but a little more doughy/stale than expected. Flavor was very mild and bitter with some sweet/spicyness. Nothing really too special. Palate is unremarkable. Not too great but its worth a try when in Chicago.

Bottle. Hazy light yellow with white head. Fruity, citrus with some malt. Quite bland but not bad. A bit boring perhaps.

Mooi troebel biertje met kleine schuimkraag erop. Bier is heerlijk zacht van smaak, goede keuze.

So what makes this Urban, I dont know? Pours a cloudy yellow with a slight layers of white head. Aroma is lemon bread, pleasant. Tastes like it smells, wheat, yeast, and lemon are noted. Light body and slick. Not bad when you are in the mood for something on the mellow side of the scale.

So bad. This beer is complete garbage. I don’t understand the hype with Goose Island. Other than Matilda and Sofie their beers are awful. This is no exception. It tastes like a Bud Heavy with like a weird wheat taste. It’s like that Bud Light Wheat they made. Just trash. I expected a nice refreshing wheat beer but I got a nasty adjunct mess of a beer. The most overrated "craft brewery" hey lets see who owns them now. Awful.

Very cloudy - too cloudy. Too yeasty - covered up the wheat flavor. A little spice and citrus.
