COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Pours dull yellow-orange, soapy white head, some lacing. Aroma of citrus, spice, flowers, but kind of faint. A balanced taste with citrus, hops, and a bit of bubblegum. Leaves an interesting kind of sweet coating, almost like honey. A good creamy/oily mouth. Refreshing summer beer.

Bottle. Pours clearer than one expects, slightly hazy golden with decent white head that reduces quickly. Aroma and taste are mild, wheat, citrus with bready, dry finish. A little thin, and not one of the best Goose Island brews. Still, makes a great session brew.

1st rating - I really liked this beer. Not the best aroma, but it went down smooth. Kind of citrus taste. Quite enjoyable.

Draft. A light colored light flavored beer. Slightly fruity in flavor. Good easy drinking alternative to light beer.

Nice gold color. Aroma and taste is citrusy, with somewhat breadiness and floral. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold with white head. Doesn’t taste as ";wheatish"; as I anticipated. Decent beer, sort of like a pilsner to me.

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Golden hue, cloudy/hazy. Large white head that dissipates rapidly, no lacing. Very slight citrus nose. Flavor is crisp citrus, bread, dough and fruit. Body is light yet creamy, soft carbonation.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Pours bright golden with a 2-inch white head that settles slowly. The ale has a very slight haze and the haze aside, looks like a pilsner. The lacing is very modest. Hints of hops in the nose. Light on the palate. Light body. An unexpected, and to me undesirable after-taste. The unpleasant, but yet unidentified aftertaste lingers. Fortunately, the after taste is light as well. Carbonation is moderate. The wheat characteristics are barely perceptible. This is a light ale and may appeal to many for that reason. I find it a decent summer, quaffing beer, but wish it had more to offer than the pervasive lightness (carbonation, nose, body, and flavor).

A bit of yeast on the aroma. Hazy gold pour, medium head with some light lacing. It’s balanced and refreshing but nothing special. Bottle into nonic pint from a 24 sampler pack purchased at Cosco that is about 3 months old.
