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.

Travlr (17644) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2010
12 oz bottle. Dull orange color, off white head, great lacing. Aroma of black pepper and orange rind. Taste is citrus, malt, light spice, and the barest hint of burnt embers. Interesting.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007
Draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location
Cloudy blond color. Aroma of sugar and lemon zest. Tastes more like a Lager than a wheat, breadish. The final is quite crispy. Refreshing.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2009
On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Very pale gold, greenish tinge, thin white head. Not a huge aroma, touch of soap on the hop, but really refreshing beer. Bit dullish, little bit of lemon edge to it, more an American wheat than a wit. Not very exciting but very refreshing.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2011
Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, yellow beer with a small, white head. Citrus and wheat in the weak aroma. The flavor is citrusy and wheaty, lacking on bitterness and punch. Flat, medium body, short and uninteresting finish. A beer that drinks easily but also bores the hell out of me. Rating: 5-3-5-2-10-2.5. 20110330

Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, yellow beer with a small, dense, white head. Mostly citrusy on the nose, with a touch of spices in the back. Wheat too. The flavor is on the citrusy side, on a backdrop of pale malts. Slightly spiced and acidic, rather thin on the palate and with too low levels of carbonation. Citrusy finish, blending oranges and lemon in a smooth, lemonade like way. Well, itís quite quenching, but itís certainly nothing impressive going on. Well, I think Iíll have a few more during the spring and summer, itís certainly better than the lagers weíre used to in Norway, and the price isnít too high either. 110413

Rasmus40 (14810) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2011
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is wheaty, fruity and yeasty. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. A bit watery and lacks body. There is something artificial about the fruity sweetness. 010311

TBone (14780) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2011
Bottled 330ml (Black Door, BB 03/2012)
Hazy pale yellow color, good creamy white head. Sweet lemon candy aroma. Light body, crisp carbonation. Fruity, citrus-sweety flavor, light acidity. Hints of watermelon. Some kind of artifical notes here too, from spices? Quite simple wheat ale, which works probably best with food.
