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.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2011
UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 From bottle. Appears cloudy, as advertised. Hops have a floral, citrusy taste that makes this drink refreshing, but it finishes very short. Much less of a bite than I prefer, very short flavor, but for some that may be a good thing. Kind of sour taste.

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.
