Very much a summer session beer. Has light piney aroma with lemony notes. Taste is both citrusy and bready but very light. Thin in body. Nice malt flavors in finish. No much tartness from the wheat.

Nice cloudy golden body with a thin white head, this wheat has a clean yet more fulsome body, bit of lemon zest and banana, than many. Very refreshing on a mild day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very weak aroma, hazy dark yellow with a very small head. The appearance is not cloudy enough for a wheat ale in my opinion, and the body and finish are weak.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light golden clear color with no appreciable head. Aromas of very sweet malt, banana, and bubblegum??. The taste, as noted by others, is nearly nonexistent... There are flavors of citrus, light sweet malt, and perhaps a touch of hops. This is far too light on the palate - It is more like drinking carbonated water than beer. Not my favorite.

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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Pours very clear with only a slight tinge of yellow with a small White with visible high carbonation. Not much on the nose, smells a bit lager like with a grain of wheat. Very refreshing would like to see in my local curry house but, doesnâ€™t really have any impressive tasting notes. In the palette, very inoffensive, note leaving of an impression, hard to believe this is from an American craft brewery. Very watery. Poor show from a useilly solid brewery

Bottle tasting at work.
Not a bad commercial wheat by Goose Island, while this (as their flagship) doesn’t stand up to more finely crafted wheat beers produced for the craft conosuers, it is a wonderful introduction to the craft market for those just getting their feet wet.
Like New Belgium, Goose Island caters its flagship to the larger consumer market that is still caught up in the (*sigh*) light beer craze. However, delving into their line of products, you find a lot of great beers deserving of the craft culture’s attention.

Very clean, crisp with a watery feel. Hint of citrus hops. Very light and refreshing. Good for a summer day.
