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.

Very smooth and a nice change of pace from the stronger ales I usually frequent. I like that it comes in a can which is a trait I appreciate because of recycling and if you are counting calories (which Iím not) it is comparable to many light beers, but with way more taste. Found it at the grocery store on sale so the price was right and Iím not disappointed with the purchase.

Pale straw with a short living, white foam. Very bland, unappealing and boring.

DarkMagus (503) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at Chigaco Midway airport. Consumed two, served in frosty pint glasses, around 12pm. Aroma was barely noticable, but some hops and graininess present. Had a light yellow color but strangely hazy appearance. The flavors were more like a rather intense pilsner or helles, not anything too reminiscent of wheat. I enjoyed this beer thoroughly, I was surprised by how much flavor and delicate bready graininess it possessed. I ordered this one because it was the only "local brew" on the menu. Thatís what the servers told me anyway. It was pretty dang good, I wish I could get my hands on it, Iíd like to get a few six packs to work on...

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2004
ON TAP - If this was the last Wheat at the bar, Iíd switch to something else. Artificial tasting and left me with a grimy feeling in my mouth. Really poor, perhaps the worst Wheat Iíve ever tasted.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Citrus, spice and wheat aroma wafts over the foamy white head and cloudy straw color of this unfiltered wheat ale. Mouthfeel is very creamy with clove, wheat and citrus flavors finsihing with a slighty hoppy aftertaste. Very refreshing and pairs well with light snacks and/or a picnic food.

12 oz pours a hazy yellow with a foamy head. Big fruity aroma. Soft body with yeasty taste, some wheat and some fruits at the end. Decent lawnmower beer.

This was definitely the best beer that I had during my time in Chicago. It has a very yeasty aroma and a cloudy appearance. It is clearly unfiltered and tastes wonderful. Itís very creamy with the taste of yeast and hops, with a hint of lemon? This is a very good beer, which I highly recommend.
