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.

Bottle. Pours a straw semi-hazy color. White head with low retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, mild citrus and watermelon. The taste is very similar with a dry finish. Iím a bit confused as this is supposed to be unfiltered but is actually quite bright. A very drinkable brew, almost session like.

22oz bomber. I couldnít help but try one of these eventually. As my nickname is Blaze312 it seemed like a good idea. Pours a watery piss yellow color. Little head that eventually disappears. Aroma is wheat and slight hops. Taste is very comparable.

Very nice light beer with a cloudy look. I am not a huge wheat beer fan but this is a nice beer overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok beer, not much taste to it, but not offensive either. I didnít notice much of anything floating in the beer and it didnít have that strong wheat taste that I usually enjoy. I would drink a few if they were offered, but Iím not going to buy any more myself.

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

GTown (127) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours a moderately hazy-yellow with minimal head. Wheat and spices are weak. Not even close to Oberon or Whitsun. A disappointment from an otherwise fine brewery.

Great summer beer, nothing special. Clean, crisp, lacking the yeast character I really like in wheat beers.

Pours straw yellow. A little haze in the color but not much. Fizzy white head is gone almost instantly with very little lacing. Aroma is wet grass, and a little sweetness. Not much complexity so far. The beer taste surprisingly sweet. Itís a slightly more complex version of the mass produced American beers. Itís hard to pin down exactly what the flavors are because none of them really standout. There is definitely some malty characteristics that I donít typically associate with this style. The beer also feels a little over carbonated. Overall, this beer isnít as bad as I was expecting. Maybe itís because I just got home from working all day and this is the first beer Iíve had in a couple days. Go into this one with low expectations, and youíll have yourself a middle of the road session beer with high drink-ability.

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.
