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.

hopdog (9969) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2006
12oz bottle labeled BB 091306. Poured a light to medium and slightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of wheat, bananas, and some citrus (all on the very light side). Tastes of the same (also very light and watery). Body on the thin and watery side.

mcberko (9730) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at The Burgundian Tavern, pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light wheat malt, not much else. Flavour of light wheat and not a whole lot else. Very weak and watery, though it is refreshing - just very boring. Not much to say here. OK.

Dogbrick (9625) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Apparently wheat doesnít grow too well in urban areas. Hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head and scant lacing. The aroma is faintly wheaty with a touch of malt. Light-bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Tastes like a cross between a Wheat and an Adjunct Lager. Mild wheat, hops and corn are the prevalent flavors. The finish is crisp and lightly hoppy and fruity. Not bad really, it just doesnít need to be this bland.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 By far the worst wateriest beer Iíve had. Well maybe boddingtons but still, this is water.

GT2 (9409) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Tap at Mad Hatter. Pours a translucent, glowing straw color almost like a witbier with a medium, bright white head leaving pretty good lace. Aroma is grainy, slight lemon, fresh bread. Taste is cream of wheat, slight sweet cherries, lots of yeasty/doughy presence, no balancing bitterness or spice.

Rune (9405) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2011
Two 355ml bottles, 4.4% abv, bought at an ICA store in TromsÝ and shared with friends. Filmy layer, spotty lacing, unclear golden body. Fresh fruity wheat to the nose. Fresh citrus fruits in flavour along with wheat and lighter notes of spices. Soft bittersweet ending. Refreshing (SommarÝy, 25.06.2011).

Bottle. It pours hazy gold with a decent white head. The nose is wheat, dough, apricot, peach and some grain. The taste is crisp, creamy, wheat, lemon, grain, dough and grass with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, easy drinkable. Ok.
