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.

This is an okay IPA, I wasnít terribly impressed with it. Some floral aromas, but Iíd like a lot more hoppiness in an IPA.

Very light golden-yellow in color. Very light carbonation. Next to no head. Nothing to stick to the sides just a very light ring. Wheaty smell with very light hops. Citurs aroma just seems to fit a nice hot day. Tastes wheaty but watery. Not quiet what I expected. Almost like itís missing something. The citrus and wheat satisfies but still a bit thin for my taste. Very clean and lightly carbonated which is very refreshing but still to thin. Very watery and thin. Not enough to make it a regular purchase. But this beer sure does satisfy on a hot day! Very clean and lightly carbonated which is very refreshing but still to thin. This is an easy drinking beer for a nice hot summer day. Easily drink these with your friends at a barbecue or at the beach. Good flavors, Good aromas and just light enough. You can drink these but I still think it needs more body.

Pale with white thin head. Light wheat flavor. A wheat beer for the íMiller Lightí crowd.

Cloudy in the traditional wheat style, with a lot of carbonation that tingles the tongue. Aroma of a little fruit and wheat and yeast, that travels through to the taste. Fruity characteristics last throughout the drink.

Nice deep golden color. Nose of cookies and grain. Light citrus. Moderate dough and soap. Very light hints of banana and honey. Not bad but not good. Decent wheat beer but I think Boulevard does it better.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 I am a big fan of heffewiezen so I was initially disappointed with this beer. By the time I got to the end of the six pack however I changed my mind and my rating. Good smooth refreshing wheat beer.

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Clear straw yellow with a faint lacy head. Smells of hops and a bit of citrus. Tasted a bit flat with an unpleasant astringency. Bitter aftertaste. Not impressed.

Bottle. Had this only once after more than a few other brews, so the details are a little hazy. Very flavorful wheat beer though. One of the best of the style I have had.
