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.

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

adnielsen (10312) - 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.

Maria (10192) - 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.

Rune (10006) - 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).

DSG (9563) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2008
(10/9/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Clybourn, Chicago. Slightly hazy golden. Fruity aroma with hops, flowers, some citrus and light wheat notes. Flavor starts a bit sweetish and fruity with some yeast and a bit of wheat and bread notes and finishes with mild hoppy bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Not bad.

Hazy pale golden colour with small white head. Fruity hoppy wheaty aroma with some sweetness, cereal and hints of rubber. Flavour is fruity hoppy with malty sweetness. Easy but decent Wheat Ale. Smooth.
