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.

After a long day of sighting seeing, this was the first beer that I had and it was new to me. Very good tasting as it was quite cold. I had the draught and iím assuming it tastes the same as the bottled

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Murky straw-colored beer with a lot of effervescence that produces a fizzy white head. Smells faintly of spice, bananas, and a little citrus. Taste is a little bitter up front, which develops into a slight sour spiciness, but overall the flavor profile is quite bland. It has a vibrant, bubbly mouth feel, which is good for this style, but thatís not enough to save this beer from mediocrity. Underwhelming. EDIT: I squeezed a lemon into the next glass I drank, and that improved things a bit. But this is still a pretty bland beer.

Light sweet aroma with a modest white head on a urine colored body. Fairly strong sweet flavor with a light finish.

Very light straw color, is cloudy and has a small amount of white head for a wheat beer. Some spice in the aroma, with lots of banana. The aroma was lacking in strength, however. The flavor lack a lot. Some banana in the finish. Some tartness. This resembles a pale lager way to much to me. The lemon actually seemed to help this beer... ouch...

Bottle. Poured a fairly clear yellow. Quickly dissapating head, no lacing. Aromas of faint fruit, peach-like. Sweet maltyness with a crisp hoppy bite. Didnít remind me of any wheat Iíve ever had. More like a kolsch, or sommat. Not bad though, a real quencher.

On tap at Winking Lizard. Yellow pour with a surprisingly thin head. Weak aroma of wheat and citrus. Flavor doesnít take the aromas much further. Watery mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Nothing worth seeking out.

A solid wheat ale. It has a lemony flavor to it on its own (I donít like to squeeze fruit juices in my wheat ales as a rule), nice head and lacing. It pours hazy golden. The aroma is mostly of lemon - I couldnít smell anything like wheat, though. Nice carbonation and refreashing, cleansing, dry aftertaste. Not watery at all, rather it has a good medium-bodied mouthfeel.

Not very imressive, had on draft in Chi. IL. Off yellow color, overly carbonated one of the worst Goose Island has to offer
