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.

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a hazy blonde color with good head and lacing. Aroma was sweet, malty but light. Taste was similar, this was a crisp, fresh wheat ale. Good summer brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(draft) Take a light American wheat and spray lemon pledge in it. Not the worst thing Iíve ever tasted, but far from the best.

Hazy yellow, white head. Thin mouthfeel, like a witbeir. Bit of yeast and malt in the aromas with a distinct citrus aroma. Pleasant session beer; heck of a lot better for this than macropils, but not too great for anything else.

Just like the commercial description says. Very light and refreshing. Light fruity aroma, cloudy golden,pour fluffy head. Malty toward bready, as expected. Perhaps the most agreeable wheat beer I have had to date.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Draught from The Pub poured into shaker with a lemon garnish - Pours clear gold with a very minimal head; Lemon and wheat to the nose; Lemon, wheat and a hint of pine hops on the initial taste; A bland wheat backtaste; Medium watery palate; Too much carbonation; Not impressed. Goose Island is normally spot on with their brews, but this one leaves a good bit to be desired. Lots of the lemon probably came from the garnish.

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2012
On tap at the Corner Pub. Appearance - Hazy golden color. Generous foamy white head. Good retention. Decent lacing. Aroma - Not much on the nose. Just some wheat and grass. Taste - Clean wheat flavor. Some lemony zest and light grassy hops add a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel - Clean & crisp. Dry. Soft carbonation. Overall - Itís enjoyable. Iíd have it again if I were in the mood for a simple wheat beer.

Fantomasus (204) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Had this beer for breakfast after a long drinking session. Pours a cloudy light golden yellow with a thin flimsy head that quickly dissipates to a film. Aroma is a little funky... hay, grass, basement aromas, cooked vegetables, light smell of rotten eggs. Taste balance sweet and sour gives way to bitterness and eventually salt. Palate should really be more like a 3.5: light body, creamy, lively, with a lingering bitter finish. Would not buy again.

On tap. Tastes slightly spicey, a little like coriander, yeasty, and a sligfht touch of citrus. Some lacing on the glass, pours a clear yellow. One of the better wheat beers I’ve had from the United States.
