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.

Pours light hazy yellow with a moderately sized white head. Aroma is light wheat character, Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts off with smooth wheat character - not much else at the beginning. The finish is prickly and somewhat metallic.

Bottle to sampler cup. Pours a light yellow, clear & sparse head. Watery and basic. Seems they brew this to compete with macrobrew wheats like blue moon & shocktop. Meh.

Pours a yellow color. About one finger white head. A little cloudy, not as much as I would have expected. Okay retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is slightly lemony. Its bready. Bran flakes? Not a lot going on. Smells like water. Everything about the aroma is faint.

Taste is lemony, bready, watery. It has a bit of grit to it. Thereís not a lot to it. Slightly bitter, I think more bitter than 18 IBUs.

Mouthfeel is light body. Itís so light, and would make a great summer beer. Itís quite dry. That bitterness lingers. Bit.

Overall, itís not that great. There are tons of better wheat beers out there. I would drink it again. But Iím not going to rush out and buy it again. I would recommend this as a summertime, hot day beer, but necessarily for my own cooler. But hey, I do recommend you give this a try, because then youíll have a better appreciation for better wheat beers.

First time Iíve been disappointed with a GI product. Poured a cloudy blonde with a healthy head. The aroma was foul, but there wasnít much of it so Iíll give them some points there. Flavor was sweet with bananas and a little malt. Just not much there.

An average American wheat ale. Watery tasting with an average palate. I need to try this again as Iíve recently become more interested in wheat ales and some of the Goose Island Iíve had over the past 6 months has actually been pretty good.

Little aroma with decent color, this American Wheat is a good ’gateway’ beer, owing to the popularity of Goose Island in the US. Not a bad interpretation of the style...the only problem is, this style is just lacking compared to the German and Belgian Wheats it’s derived from.

When poured the beer looks to be unfiltered. Hazy straw like color with lots of floating sediment. Citrusy lemon nose. Mildly carbonated and dry, with notes of lemon and grass flavors, and a touch of hops in the finish. An okay beer/wheat.
