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.

This was not one of those dry or bitter wheat ales. This beer was really smooth with a bit of lemon flavor. It has nothing particularly special about it, but it is consistent. I must disagree with others and say that I enjoyed this brew.

I have to love a beer dedicated to chicago. Pours light hazy straw yellow, with thin white fizz. Flavors of banana, pineapple, and slight malts come across, with a finish thats sweet an lemony. This is a great wheat beer.

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.

Poured a very pale yellow with a crisp white head. The aroma has a very apparent wheat smell and overall it is a very good beer.

Bottle. Pours a pale, orange gold color with a large white head. No good aroma or taste to note. Notes of orange and bread, but mild and light. A very light tasting wheat ale. Very thin palate

A decent hot-weather American wheat, pours cloudy pale gold, very subtle spicing and watery flavor but thirst-quenching, I consider this an affordable but decent lawnmower beer.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 Wow I cannot believe I havenít rated this yet, seeing as its probably the beer I drink more than any others since its always cheap on tap. Very great wheat, which gives way to floral and sweet fruit with an excellent finish.

An ok effort. Just letting it sit for a few minutes and warm up made it much worse. All of a sudden got a little woddy flavor to it and then dissipated. For Goose Island, Iím let down.
