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.

Aroma: at first it was citrusy and wheaty, but later became rancid (not skunky, but some other sour smell). Appearance: cloudy straw, with a large head that lasts a couple minutes. The flavor is unexceptional, and is very bland. Not much hop, malt, wheat, or yeast flavor. None of the fruity tastes that a good wheat beer gives you. The palate was likewise thin and watery. This is a sub-standard wheat beer, and I would recomment Boulevardís instead if you are looking for a good wheat beer made here in the midwest.

Lightrider (303) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft at phillies game. Pour us a haze gold with a lace head. Aroma is a lite malt. Taste is a nice bitter, smooth. Finish is clean. A good ale.

BrianHagmeier (299) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Pours a straw color with a small, frothy head. Aromas are bready with some sour mash notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Tastes the same as it smells.

This was a very disappointing outing from Goose Island. Had on tap. Yellow color with little head. Pretty watery with little flavor.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Tap. Cloudy pale yellow color. Foamy white head. Aroma of wheat and coriander, and wintergreen. Flavors matched, with zesty lemon notes and a slight bitter tone on the finish.

sawbuck (297) - 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.

OzarkElmo (295) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy golden with moderate white head. Nice unfiltered US wheat beer. Lightly hopped with hints of lemon & orange. Nice, refreshing.

Pleasant but not particularly impressive. Very easy to drink but rather bland, flavorless.

Fech (291) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Very good unfiltered wheat. Idk what the urban implies but full flavored citrus notes. Cloudy yellow pour.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Grainy and grassy aroma, lightly hopped, very thin mouthfeel, pretty watery finish - this is a clean and crisp beer, I bought it out of interest for the wheat ale element but I find it to be a little bit lighter than I was expecting, arguably a good introductory ale for lager fans looking to broaden their drinking.
