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.

I found this to be a good tasting beer, despite the low rating. Light, but flavorful, but, by no means overpowering. Perfect for a boatside session on the dock. a thick white head that fades slowly. Color is dissapointing. Pale yellow, not very cloudy as the description suggests. Aroma is wheat, but smells very much like a lager, and also slight citrus. Flavor is also kind of pale to me. Wheat, citrus, faint fruits. Like I said before, it is light, but very quenching. The boys at GI did a good job on this one.

Beer pours a slightly cloudy golden color. Looks to have decent carbonation and pours a decent one and a half finger head. The aroma is light citrus, lemony, a bit grassy. There are notes of wheat as well. The initial taste is a nice pop of carbonation followed by that lemon note which moves across the entire palate. In the middle there is definitely a bitter hop astringency which moves into a nice citrus wheatiness. The beer finishes with a hint of wheat and then some more slight bitterness.

Draft. Somewhat floral aroma. Pretty golden, teeny bit muddied. Easy to drink. Light, crisp but not crackly. A pleasantly delightful surprise.

Cimbasso (328) - - DEC 18, 2014
Sampled from a bottle in Chicago. A hazy pale golden colour with a thin white head. Lots of good hop aromas. The taste is quite tart and fruity, with hints of honey. Not much bitterness in the taste. A good thirst quencher, quite mild flavours and just a little bland.

ebone1988 (317) - Wyoming, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Aroma is light, wheat heavy. Appearance is a piss yellow, clear. Taste is what it is: light, wheat beer. The mouthfeel is meh; carbonated, but not so much. Overall, itís forgettable, but better than a Budweiser.

DMLINAZ (316) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2013
This is my wifeís auntís favorite beer and itís suited to her taste. I find it pretty inoffensive and easy going. Not much aroma. Just some slight lemon and grass and wheat. Fairly low carbonation and creamy mouthfeel makes this easy to drink. Flavor is slight lemon, wheat, some malt.

Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is similar, with some citrus fruit. Not much to this beer but not bad for drinking for refreshment.
