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.

Not a bad beer by any means. Very easy to drink and great on a hot day but not so much if the beer warms up. I would just go for Honkers or any other beer in their line as they have more flavor.

The statements from the commercial description like "itís a beer thatís densely populated with flavor and loaded with character" are way off. Like many have said before: it is very watery, almost no smell, etc.. I have to say, there are some interesting aromaís, but they are very subtle. It could be a nice refresher, but even then there are probably better options.

33cl bottle from Albert Hein XL. Thin white head. Hazy light blond pour. Refreshing but not very interesting. Not much to it.

mjansen1310 (122) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
0,33 l bottle. Pours a golden clear beer. Tastes a bit like a mix of ipa, blonde beer and a lot of water. So you taste the notes but it still is watery.

TheJvd (949) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
33 cL bottle at home, bought at the COOP. Pours a bit hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma has a little bit of citrus, wheat and some hops. Taste is sweet with a little bit of citrus and malts, not much else going on. Medium body and carbo.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold with small white head. Light citrus, easy drinking, clean taste with no discernible wheat traits. Harmless enough.

ralphdot (1007) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
4.2% very pale yellow cloudy beer with a thin head, not much aroma at all and not a lot of taste although it was bitter and fruity and not too bad.

Smaakloos. Heel licht biertje met 4,2 %. Lichte citroenachtige smaak maar verder karakterloos.

mutz (692) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Flesje van de AH. Troebel, gele kleur, weinig schuim. Aroma van hop, licht citrusfruit, mout. Smaakt vooral waterig, licht bitter met een beetje citrusvrucht. Als ik de reclametekst hierboven lees dan heb ik het idee dat ik het verkeerde bier geproefd heb

caesar (5642) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from local Jumbo, dated 26Jan15 BB 26Jan16, large sample. Hazy golden color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of some grainy malt, slight citrus, hint of spicy yeast, wheat. Slight citrussy bitterness. Bit cardboard. Some bitter tonic notes, juniper. Boring stuff. Thoroughly deserving its low rating.

katrinaez (412) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Not bad but fat from great if you are going with a wheat beer. The aroma is decent but the flavor is lacking. I realize itís American wheat but still lacking. Tap.
