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.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008
Draught at Cabooses, Geneva, Illinois. This hazy pale yellow beer was preferable to the macro lagers available at this railway station bar, but it was served far too cold and not as flavourful as better wheat beers.

355 ml bottle. Hazy yellow colour with stable white head off. Aroma of citrus fruits, but nothing specific. Sourish of citrus fruits in taste, wheat, watery body, but strange aftertaste, light bitterness. Medium

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Pours a cloudy light yellow, white a white reasonably sustaining head. Aromas are of lemon and other citrus with a mellowness from the wheat. Flavor is slightly watered down, with the wheat and lemons up front. No lasting finish, mouthfeel is light and watery. A nice session beer during the summer.

Nothing special. Has some sediment but it's a wheat beer. Not bad, but nothing stands out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow, with hints of citrus (lemon), and spice in both the aroma and taste. A good summer ale.

beer_rookie (361) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 29, 2016
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.
