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.

Pours hazy straw pale with a small head that quickly diminishes. Nose is fruity with currant in background. Flavor is a bit cidery with a dry bitter finish. Not so much of a wheat ale but still drinkable.

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a white fluffy head. Clean, slightly fruity aroma. Taste is very light. Be good after cutting the grass in the summer.

Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is faint: some waxiness and herby hops. Flavor is also pretty muted. A bit of nutty sweetness at beginning, then dominated by a mild, ascerbic herby hop character. Medium-light body with a thin, yet creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, really not very good at all.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
A cloudy pale yellow beer with a decent white that manages to leave some good lacing. Sweet aroma of wheat, apricot and oranges. So far the beer gushes cool refreshing summer beer. Light citrus flavor and wheat. Mild carbonation hits the tongue and the beer finishes with a light citrusy wheat bite at the end. There is not much to this beer but it is easily drinkable and enjoyable.

Pretty good wheat ale. Itís like Goose Islandís take on cheap beer... I can dig it.

1guywith_aboat (254) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours clear yellow until the bottom of the bottle. Then a swirly haze hits the glass. Really neat looking. Aroma is wheat and spicy yeast. Flavor is tame. Nothing really there. Thin body. Easy drinking ale but lacks some of the qualities of a good wheat ale.

steelhead3686 (254) - Athens, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2011
Pours golden wheat color (go figure) with a small white head. Heavy hay/grass aroma (go figure). Medium sour taste with the very faintest bitter on the back end. Very light beer. Almost nothing to it really. Not a great wheat beer. It fits the bill for being light and refreshing, but itís too light and the refreshing nature is more from just having a cold, slightly carbonated beverage.

Pours a hazy light piss color from a bottle. Not much to speak of, bland aroma and flavor.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 25, 2005
On tap at Clybourn: Soft yellow. Thin, and not remarkable. Nice citrusy tang. A little bit of funk? Not as bad as some say. Weird label. Thanks to Ma Beth.

I used to like this one, but then realized it was not all that good. It is a watered down american wheat. If you like the style of american wheat then this might be okay for you. The malts just did not come through for me.
