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.

Slightly cloudy yellow body with a thick white head. Aroma has some hops, citrus and a grassy smell. Flavor is mostly absent, but hints at some citrus and wheat. Palate is watery. When Goose Island has the chops to make beers as good as the Bourbon County Stout or the Imperial IPA, I donít know why they waste their time on this one. Not a very impressive beer.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Tall glass, cloudy yellow with two fingers of head. Looks really nice. Banana bread smell, blunt, little bit of lemon. Watery taste, lemon bitterness. A fair amount of carbonation, medium body and crisp. Looked great, the taste was a letdown, which makes it fairly average for a wheat. -Fish!

Stuedmaster (234) - 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.

Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Very much a summer session beer. Has light piney aroma with lemony notes. Taste is both citrusy and bready but very light. Thin in body. Nice malt flavors in finish. No much tartness from the wheat.

Nice cloudy golden body with a thin white head, this wheat has a clean yet more fulsome body, bit of lemon zest and banana, than many. Very refreshing on a mild day.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Very weak aroma, hazy dark yellow with a very small head. The appearance is not cloudy enough for a wheat ale in my opinion, and the body and finish are weak.

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2007
Light golden clear color with no appreciable head. Aromas of very sweet malt, banana, and bubblegum??. The taste, as noted by others, is nearly nonexistent... There are flavors of citrus, light sweet malt, and perhaps a touch of hops. This is far too light on the palate - It is more like drinking carbonated water than beer. Not my favorite.

unstablefable (227) - SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Pours very clear with only a slight tinge of yellow with a small White with visible high carbonation. Not much on the nose, smells a bit lager like with a grain of wheat. Very refreshing would like to see in my local curry house but, doesn’t really have any impressive tasting notes. In the palette, very inoffensive, note leaving of an impression, hard to believe this is from an American craft brewery. Very watery. Poor show from a useilly solid brewery
