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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at Clybourn on 6/20/07: Pours a clear bright golden with a thin covering of white head. Aroma of sweet orange citrus and pale malted wheat along with some floral noble hops. Body starts lightly sweet and wheaty with a dull bitter balance. Nothing that great, but pretty well done and drinkable for the style.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2009
A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Pale yellow with a thin white film. Faint citrus and yeast, some boring malt, lots of pondwater. Bloody hell. Rank. As the commercial description says, "not like any other Goose Island beer". Most of them are decent, some superb. This however was not either.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle- served in a weizen as instructed. Misting straw, fine uneven collar. Bright, zesty, lemon meringue and pineapple jelly aroma like an English GA. Lemon curd on wholemeal toast with dabs of sherbet and honey; squeeze of lime, tingling condition. Lemon puff biscuit finish with soapy bitterness and perfumed hop. Refreshing.

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2005
There really wasnít a lot to this beer... Cloudy yellow pour with a small white head. Only some slight citrusy aroma, but you have to sniff really hard. Flavor was wheaty, with a little of the citrus hoppiness from the nose. Light-bodied and watery. Not a whole lot in the finish, either.

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

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a clear light yellow with a nice soft white head. Aroma is wheat, with a touch of lemon. Thin bodied with a lot of active carbonation. Mostly empty flavor wise. Finishes lightly with a touch of wheat, a hint of banana, and a little bit of lemon. Pretty clean, but lacking much substance.
