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.

Tap @ Star Bar. Clear (?), light gold pour with a fine white head leaving coarse lace. Fruity, wet straw nose with a hint of cotton candy. Medium body with a faint lemon zest, hazelnuts and typical wheat malts. There is a sweetness which reminds me vaguely of arrested-fermentation NA beers. Perhaps this accounts for the heavier-than-expected body? Not a fan, but paired OK with my excellect Star Burger.

On tap at Ginoís East Chicago. Pours a nice golden hazy color with a medium white head. Aroma of grass and citrus. Taste of wheat and malt. Smooth as silk and finishes with little tease from the hops.

Floback (541) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
6-pack from Publix grocery. Pours a hazy yellow body with minimal off-white head. Nose of banana, subtle citrus. Flavors are similar to the aroma with the addition of lemongrass, dough, and a very subtle herbal note. Finishes clean. Medium carbonation and light/medium body. Not great in complexity, but easily drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigda83 (534) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft. Poured a clear straw yellow with little head. Aroma was almost non-existant with mild fruit notes. Flavor was peach, straw, and almost had a belgian taste to it. Light body, think texture, bubbly carbonation, smooth finish. Just not good.
