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.

Some citrus nose. Super mild palate with more citrus and bread. Easy drinking yet boring

Bue en bouteille. Bière assez légère, peu corpulente. On sent les céréales et une touche acide finale sur le citron. Pas la meilleure de cette brasserie.

So bad. This beer is complete garbage. I donít understand the hype with Goose Island. Other than Matilda and Sofie their beers are awful. This is no exception. It tastes like a Bud Heavy with like a weird wheat taste. Itís like that Bud Light Wheat they made. Just trash. I expected a nice refreshing wheat beer but I got a nasty adjunct mess of a beer. The most overrated "craft brewery" hey lets see who owns them now. Awful.

Floback (502) - Naples, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2014
6-pack from Publix grocery. Pours a hazy yellow body with minimal off-white head. Nose of banana, subtle citrus. Flavors are similar to the aroma with the addition of lemongrass, dough, and a very subtle herbal note. Finishes clean. Medium carbonation and light/medium body. Not great in complexity, but easily drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arkurzynski (1393) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2014
Hazy gold. Nose of sweet wheat malt with some wet malt and mild hopping. Flavor is bright golden malt and sweet wheat malt with a light citrus hop finish. Very good for a bland style.

jcnielsen (1705) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Wheat, citrus, yeast aromas and flavors. Pretty straight forward wheat beer. I can see why this beer has a wide appeal, pretty drinkable.

wimpyjoe (2924) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Lighter yellow with a very small carbonation. Has a fruit fused wheat beer nose and a fair citric taste, although it does not linger.

czar (3775) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
pours slightly hazy pale yellow with a small white cap, little retention and lacing. pils malts, faint wheat, honey, sweet corn, some spices, few fruity phenolic esters, slightly lemony and coconuty. moderate carboantion, light body - slightly watery, relatively bland spicy-herbal-grassy finish. inoffensive but meh.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a slightly hazy straw yellow colored body with a small white head that tans at the edges and then the whole thing dissipates within a couple seconds. There is some light foamy lacing around the sides of the glass. It leaves no rings. The smell had some wheat, malts and some lemon. The taste had some wheat and malts with the lemon coming back ever so slightly. Some toasted grains come in very faint. On the palate, she sits fairly light with a moderate carbonation. This is very easy to drink. Overall, this is a pretty good brew that would make me want to come back and get it again.
