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.

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
Itís hazy, light golden with a creamy, lasting, white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, citrus and light wheat. The flavour is sweet with notes of peach, citrus and other fruits. Itís very fruity with low priority on wheat, and IMO as such uninteresting.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled, 355ml from Tesco in Banbury. Cloudy straw colour with white head. Well, I didnít consider it to be densely populated with flavor (sic) and loaded with character. It was on the thin side, there was a light lemonade note, sweet, some graininess. Not much to go on, a little disappointing.

A lightlly hazed blonde with a thick white head. In aroma, a lightly chalky malt, grainy, wheaty with light berry notes. In mouth, a fresh grainy ale with light berries, light and refreshing. On tap at Clybourn, May 17 2009.
