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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
Bottled. A hazy straw coloured beer with a white head. A wheaty yeasty aroma with a bit of fizzy fruit and a bit of orange. Middle of the road fruity wheaty flavours. Just an average beer but itís a boring style.

GT2 (8742) - 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.

Dogbrick (8681) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8575) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Slightly hazy yellowish pour. The nose is lightly lemony and wheaty with a little bit of light berryish estery sweetness. Pretty simple brew really. Light wheaty palate with just a kiss of light crackery malt. There isnít much to this one, but it isnít terrible either.

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).

Smell of LME and light melon fruitiness. Bland and slightly bready flavor. Some light lemon is all I get. Clear yellow and fizzy.
