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.

sampled at columbus alefest. pours hazy yellow with a small head. little to no aroma with just a hint of fruityness. wheat flavor, subtle spiceness and little hoppyness. overall, a bland wheat, but would be refreshing on a hot day.

Pours yellow with white head. Smells malty, citrus and some stank. Taste is wheat, citrus and skunky hay. I might have just gotten a bad one since I grabbed it from a dirty corner deli. This was not good though.

Hazy yellow pour. Minimal lacing. Faint yeast aroma. Smooth start, slightly bitter finish. Not a pleasant aftertaste. Had better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A really bad example of a wheat ale...I had no clue the style before drinking and then thought it was a pale lager. Piss colored but at least had some lacing. Aroma was yeasty, skunky and lemony...it was ok. Flavor was slightly bitter but like in a bud way...fizzy, thin and just overall bad on the palate but not the worst.

Very slightly hazy gold beer. Crispy palate. Lagerish light malt that turns softer and silky. Subtle hop fruit and bitterness. Finishes dry. Inoffensive but average.

So where exactly in the 312 might one grow a little urban wheat for this ale? Or am I being too literal? Iím enjoying this in the early spring and thinking how nice it would taste on a hot summer day -- if Wisconsin gets any this year. The aroma and taste are nicely subdued and it all works.

On tap 7/14 @ the Wrigleyville Brewpub: Pours a cloudy yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma is yeasty with hints of lemon, banana, and spices. Flavor is initially sweet with a grainy finish. A nice summer brew!
