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.

An average American wheat ale. Watery tasting with an average palate. I need to try this again as Iíve recently become more interested in wheat ales and some of the Goose Island Iíve had over the past 6 months has actually been pretty good.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2006
When poured the beer looks to be unfiltered. Hazy straw like color with lots of floating sediment. Citrusy lemon nose. Mildly carbonated and dry, with notes of lemon and grass flavors, and a touch of hops in the finish. An okay beer/wheat.

badwhale (396) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle to sampler cup. Pours a light yellow, clear & sparse head. Watery and basic. Seems they brew this to compete with macrobrew wheats like blue moon & shocktop. Meh.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2011
Light sweetness, and a little bit of bitterness. Little taste and aroma to detect at all, I had expected more. Colour is somewhat yellow, it pours a small white head. (355 ml bottle)

Goblincat (394) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Pours a light hazy gold. The aroma is wheat and maybe some spicy citrus. The taste is American wheat and really not much more.

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a little white head. Not much lacing. Wheat smell but not overally aromatic. Lacked in flavor and was little more tart than other wheats Iíve had.

lachneger (392) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2015
Honing geel van kleur met een witte schuimkraag die niet lang blijft zitten. Smaak waterig zoet en een vleugje citroen.

EyeAmBaldman (391) - 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.

Bottle pours cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of fruit and wheat malt. Taste is slight spice, fruity, and corn. Body is light. I dont need to taste again.
