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.

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

Had this from the tap. Delicously fruity, sweet, with hints of citrus. Slightly bitter and easy drinking.

12 oz bottle. Pours pale yellow, active carbonation with a quickly fading white head. Smells sweet and earthy alike. Very bubbly mouthfeel with a citrus crispness thatís fairly enjoyable. Very mouth-drying finish. I think more malt would give this basically decent beer a reason to rave.

35.5 cl bottle - frothy white head with the strongest yellow appearance. Wheat palate which disappears very quickly.

Pale, hazy yellow with very little white head. Light aroma, some sweetness and a little hops. Crisp flavor has some citrus and grain. Not terrible.

First, let me say that I love most wheat aleís. This one is a good regular, session beer and tastes great in hot weather. But in terms of other offerings in this category, a bit on the weaker side. Itís got more of a citrus aroma and a yellowish but not cloudy appearance. Itís fizzy and lemony to me. Lighter and doesnít have a great head build up. Goes down easy. Better than drinking a Bud or some other crap during the summer.

On tap. Nose was slightly of citrus. Not much going on. Unfortunately, this carried over to the taste. Very watery mouthfeel. I was surprised this beer was made by Goose Island. Almost a sad attempt by a micro brew at something that would appeal to the mainstream pale lager taste....but not be a pale lager. Shame on Goose Island and shame on this beer. Not worth drinking again!

Pours golden yellow with a thick cloudy appearance and a small white head. The aroma is very citrusy, whearas the flavor is of wheat and yeast and hops. Not the best goose island, but very refreshing.

not a big fan of wheat beers. pours golden with white head. hazy color, slight floral and lemony-fruit (as opposed to lemony hop) smells. smooth body and a slightly dry finish. ok but nothing special
