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.

No noticeable aroma. Very pale aspect. Almost like pale lager with a lemon hue. Some caramel, a bit of citrics and no palate. Or rather short, again reminding a pale lager. On tap somewhere in NYC.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Very strong citrus, hop smell. I can definitely taste the wheat beer qualities, but the citrus flavor is a little too overwhelming for my tastes. Quite a bit of carbonation and a fairly abrupt finish. Probably my least favorite goose island beer Iíve had.

uglyblond1 (177) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Not really fair, I donít like wheat beers, and this has a lot of wheat funk to the flavor. The fruityness makes the wheat flavor more distasteful to me. It is a smooth and fuller bodied beer for the type.

Aroma is watery. It's appearance is great with a medium head everything else is a little sloppy and bland. Not much to palate a slight wheat taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marv3mania (176) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle poured into weizen. Appearance is a hazy golden color with orange tint and big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is yeast, lemon zest, and spicy hops. Taste is wheat and light citrus, though itís a bit weak. This is ok, but nothing special.

matty (174) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly. Thin aroma, faint yeast. Thin body, average wheat taste. Overall, not a bad beer, good for a hot day, but there are better ones out there.

Light citrus aroma, some citrus and wheat in the flavor with a crisp finish. Refreshing but not overly complex.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Iíve had this beer many times on tap and bottled - Most recently from a 12 oz into a shaker. Pours a straw yellow with lots of haze and cloudiness. Nice head if you pour straight in. Looks OK. Aroma is very mild - slight wheat, slight citrus, a little earthy/grassy. Smells decent, but a bit light. Taste is very light (read: watery and slightly dissapointing), light citrus/lemon, slight wheat and thats about it. Overall, itís very light and unforunately only 4.2%, but it is nice and refreshing on a hot summer day. You can do better, but itís OK.
