COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

I have to love a beer dedicated to chicago. Pours light hazy straw yellow, with thin white fizz. Flavors of banana, pineapple, and slight malts come across, with a finish thats sweet an lemony. This is a great wheat beer.

Poured a very pale yellow with a crisp white head. The aroma has a very apparent wheat smell and overall it is a very good beer.

Bottle. Pours a pale, orange gold color with a large white head. No good aroma or taste to note. Notes of orange and bread, but mild and light. A very light tasting wheat ale. Very thin palate

Pale, hazy yellow with very little white head. Light aroma, some sweetness and a little hops. Crisp flavor has some citrus and grain. Not terrible.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 Wow I cannot believe I haven’t rated this yet, seeing as its probably the beer I drink more than any others since its always cheap on tap. Very great wheat, which gives way to floral and sweet fruit with an excellent finish.

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.

A decent hot-weather American wheat, pours cloudy pale gold, very subtle spicing and watery flavor but thirst-quenching, I consider this an affordable but decent lawnmower beer.

12oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a white fluffy head. Clean, slightly fruity aroma. Taste is very light. Be good after cutting the grass in the summer.

Bottle. Hazy pale yellow, practically no head. Fruity aroma with some apricots. Fruity flavor as well, with some spiciness, and a malty finish with hints of grapefruit and citrus. There’s a slightly sour taste going on. Easy to drink and quite pleasant.
