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.

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2011
Two 355ml bottles, 4.4% abv, bought at an ICA store in Tromsø 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 (Sommarøy, 25.06.2011).

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2008
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 (10437) - 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 (10215) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
It’s 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. It’s very fruity with low priority on wheat, and IMO as such uninteresting.
