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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Pours a cloudy light yellow, white a white reasonably sustaining head. Aromas are of lemon and other citrus with a mellowness from the wheat. Flavor is slightly watered down, with the wheat and lemons up front. No lasting finish, mouthfeel is light and watery. A nice session beer during the summer.

Cimbasso (356) - - 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.

jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma has notes of wheat, citrus and a little malt. Flavor is wheat and malt. pretty crisp beer. An alright wheat beer, but nothing special. Doesn’t really have a good body to it.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Not too bad at all. While the American Wheat pales next to the Belgian Wit or German Weisen this is a nice example of the domestic style. The 312 is the Chicago area code. The inhearent problem of this style is that it has too strong of a hop-grapefruit taste. This is a good beer though

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2006
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.

MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2007

mcmisko (354) - New York, USA - APR 3, 2012
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.
