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.

Stuedmaster (162) - 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.

Bottle poured into weizen. Appearance is a hazy golden color with orange tint and big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is yeast, lemon zest, and spicy hops. Taste is wheat and light citrus, though itís a bit weak. This is ok, but nothing special.

After a long day of sighting seeing, this was the first beer that I had and it was new to me. Very good tasting as it was quite cold. I had the draught and iím assuming it tastes the same as the bottled

Light sweet aroma with a modest white head on a urine colored body. Fairly strong sweet flavor with a light finish.

matty (155) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly. Thin aroma, faint yeast. Thin body, average wheat taste. Overall, not a bad beer, good for a hot day, but there are better ones out there.

ARH (153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma nothing special. Itís not offense, but itís faint faint. It has some light citrusy-sweet aroma to it (mostly lemon), accompanied by some floral notes and a light hop scent. It pours straw yellow with a thin, white head that, pours strong, but recedes quickly. Thereís nothing too dramatic in the taste either; having a mild sweetness throughout, and a light, pleasantly sour note at the finish. Initially tastes lemony with some bread-like flavor to it - maybe some clove-like spice in there too. It finishes closer to apple juice with some orange in it. The initial sips are highly carbonated, and the fizziness keeps some presence throughout, but by the end, itís a bit more malty and syrupy. Generally finishes clean, although pairing it with food seems to recall the apple traces in the flavor and a very faint hop taste. Although my scores are generally low, this has been a goto session beer for me for a long time, and will likely continue to be so - none of the flavors are overwhelming or offensive, so itís a crowd-pleaser and it pairs well with just about any food offering without enhancing or masking any flavors. The ABV and calorie count are relatively low too, so itís easy to throw back a couple of these without doing too much damage.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Very light straw color, is cloudy and has a small amount of white head for a wheat beer. Some spice in the aroma, with lots of banana. The aroma was lacking in strength, however. The flavor lack a lot. Some banana in the finish. Some tartness. This resembles a pale lager way to much to me. The lemon actually seemed to help this beer... ouch...

Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Bottle. Poured a fairly clear yellow. Quickly dissapating head, no lacing. Aromas of faint fruit, peach-like. Sweet maltyness with a crisp hoppy bite. Didnít remind me of any wheat Iíve ever had. More like a kolsch, or sommat. Not bad though, a real quencher.
