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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Pours a cloudy light yellow, white a white reasonably sustaining head. Aromas are of lemon and other citrus with a mellowness from the wheat. Flavor is slightly watered down, with the wheat and lemons up front. No lasting finish, mouthfeel is light and watery. A nice session beer during the summer.

sawbuck (363) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours a pale, cloudy yellow. Sweet aroma. Light white head that settles quickly. First taste is sweet, citurs...more on the lemon side. Finishes with a faint not of hops...cleanly. Usually not a fan of wheat but this one is o.k.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with hints of citrus (lemon), and spice in both the aroma and taste. A good summer ale.

Wheat, lemon rind aroma. Flavor is wheat, citrus, and fresh grains. Fairly typical american wheat... thirst quenching I guess.

jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma has notes of wheat, citrus and a little malt. Flavor is wheat and malt. pretty crisp beer. An alright wheat beer, but nothing special. Doesnít really have a good body to it.

Not too bad at all. While the American Wheat pales next to the Belgian Wit or German Weisen this is a nice example of the domestic style. The 312 is the Chicago area code. The inhearent problem of this style is that it has too strong of a hop-grapefruit taste. This is a good beer though

mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours yellow with white head. Smells malty, citrus and some stank. Taste is wheat, citrus and skunky hay. I might have just gotten a bad one since I grabbed it from a dirty corner deli. This was not good though.
