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.

Draught at Cabooses, Geneva, Illinois. This hazy pale yellow beer was preferable to the macro lagers available at this railway station bar, but it was served far too cold and not as flavourful as better wheat beers.

EyeAmBaldman (375) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
A pale wheat ale. Hints of citrus. Drank cold and went down easy. A little hoppy on the back end but nothing that detracts from the taste. Would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

355ml Flasche. Leicht trüb und golden. Kleine Schaumkrone. Sehr wässrig, wenig aromatisch. Geht leicht runter, mehr nicht.

mybrainhurts (374) - North Dakota, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Wheat, lemon rind aroma. Flavor is wheat, citrus, and fresh grains. Fairly typical american wheat... thirst quenching I guess.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Pours a cloudy light yellow, white a white reasonably sustaining head. Aromas are of lemon and other citrus with a mellowness from the wheat. Flavor is slightly watered down, with the wheat and lemons up front. No lasting finish, mouthfeel is light and watery. A nice session beer during the summer.

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow, with hints of citrus (lemon), and spice in both the aroma and taste. A good summer ale.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2013 Hazy, very light hue of yellow with a white head. Slight aroma of citrus. Very weak taste.

jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma has notes of wheat, citrus and a little malt. Flavor is wheat and malt. pretty crisp beer. An alright wheat beer, but nothing special. Doesn’t really have a good body to it.

Not too bad at all. While the American Wheat pales next to the Belgian Wit or German Weisen this is a nice example of the domestic style. The 312 is the Chicago area code. The inhearent problem of this style is that it has too strong of a hop-grapefruit taste. This is a good beer though
