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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Weizen glass. The label has a "Bottled On" date but no ABV% Appearance: It has a very light hazy straw yellow color with some fine yeast sediment in suspension. There is a little visible carbonation as well that helps support it nice foamy white head. The head hangs on well and makes a few cool lace rings near the top of the glass. Smell: The aroma is light and has a simple clean bready/yeast character. Taste/Palate: There is a light clean bready/biscuit like malt base with a very light hop bitterness. The finish is snappy and the light body and texture are refreshing. Notes: There not much to say. It hits its mark as a basic Pale Wheat Ale.

Bottle. Pours cloudy soft gold with foamy white head. Smells citrusy and semi floral with hints of some spice. Tastes spicy like cloves and some citrus. Bitter aftertaste that doesnt match the beer. Overall, its pretty good.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Cloudy, amber, thick white head; malty aroma like any old pale lager; gentle wheaty, fruity taste; smooth, a little spice, but essentially boring; disappointing for someone whose beer interest was partly rekindled by a particularly fine bottle of their IPA.

Goose Island has better offerings. A cloudy pale ale with some spice notes and fruit notes. Fairly smooth.

Aggiebob (631) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Draft poured a hazy gold with a slight citrus aroma. The taste is a little bit bitter with a hint of a citrus taste (orange?) and a smooth finish.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Sour wheat, lemon, light malt. Boring. Appearance: Light orange in color and hazy. White head was full and foamy with decent retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lightly sour wheat, some light malt and yeast, lemon. Spritzy finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied and a little watery. Medium carbonation. Overall: Dull and boring. Nothing that would make me want to order another.

cervmagpt (622) - PORTUGAL - JUN 1, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 1D). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: low grainy and slight doughy aroma. slight malt sweetness. faint citrusy hop note. APPEARANCE: pale yellow color and slightly hazy. small white head with poor retention. TASTE: low grainy malt flavor with slight cardboard notes. medium-low to low bitterness. no hop flavors PALATE: medium-low to low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an american wheat ale that lost its charm maybe due to be at the end of its Best Before date.

An okay wheat ale; it has the wheat ale characteristics that make it refreshing on a hot day, but there are other wheat ales that do the same thing, but taste better.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2008
A fried brought this to a surprise party at our house. Warn and muggy day fit this well. More flavor than the standard beers that people bring over, a hint of citrus and spice, but not enough character to drink again. Might be a nice step for someone into the WWoCB (wonderful world of craft beers).

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 On tap at cleveland airport. Aroma is unidentifiable spices. Fizzy, fruity with light malt and some off flavor bread and yeast. Odd combinations and not so enjoyable. Over carbonated. Bad choice for last call stuck in cleveland airport.
