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.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home - Apr ’12. Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Little aroma to this beer, faint wheat and grain, a little pale malt. Taste follows on from the nose with a little citrus and grassiness in there. Light to medium in body and perhaps a little over carbonated. No need to re-visit!

330ml bottle (K Market, Helsinki)
5 Flowery perfumy almost soapy aroma.
2 Pale gold, brief fizzy head.
5 Watery and minerally. Touch mashy and raw.
3 Watery palate, fizzy carbonation, some carbonic acidity too. Finish does at least have some graininess, and reasonably bold fruity hops.
10 Pluses and minuses, but pretty dull all in all.

Draft… DLD’08… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. Lots of citrus and pale grains in the aroma. Light to medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Sweet (too sweet) with reserved citrus. Finishes sweet and grainy.

adnielsen (9479) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a touch hazy golden appearance with a smallish white head. Soft, light banana, lemon, a bit zesty, vanilla wafer aroma. Kind of dry grainy wheat, tangy, lemon, a touch bland flavor. Not hard to drink but nothing special.

Drake (9005) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2010
12 ounce bottle from thetomG in Secret Santa Winter 10. Thanks! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of bread, citrus, stone fruits and a bitter finish. The taste is bitter citrus notes, some tropical notes as well, wheat, bread, an almost crackery note. Nutty finish. Thin-medium bodied. Solidly made and would probably be very nice to session during the summer.
