COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

I tried this as something different and I was not terribly impressed. It was too tangy and sweet for me. I am not a "hoppy" beer fan, but I so want my beer to taste like a beer and not like this.

bigda83 (420) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft. Poured a clear straw yellow with little head. Aroma was almost non-existant with mild fruit notes. Flavor was peach, straw, and almost had a belgian taste to it. Light body, think texture, bubbly carbonation, smooth finish. Just not good.

Beetje zurig en licht hoppig. Garnering en licht wit bier achtig. Nectar achtig mondgevoel. Wel aardig, maar niet bijzonder.

PlutonowyMan (131) - POLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Kolor jest jasno pomaranczowy, jasno bursztynowy, m?tny. Piana bia?a, zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzyków, nie chcia?a poczeka? a? zrobi? zdjecia. Aromat jest bardzo delikatny, odrobin? morelowy, troch? miodowy, nieco metaliczny, co? jakby woda mineralna z du?? ilo?ci? jonów ?elaza. Smak, tak jak aromat niesamowicie s?aby, cho? mo?na si? doszuka? moreli, miodu, oraz jak wcze?niej metaliczno??. Goryczka i jak alkohol nie wyczuwalne. Wysycenie jest ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. 312 z browaru Goose Island mimo i? niema zdecydowanego aromatu czy smaku jest piwem niesamowicie orze?wiaj?cym, lekkim i pijalnym, mo?e nawet wodnistym, cho? w tym przypadku jest to raczej atut. Idealne na upa?.

bonkiedeaap (418) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
355ml bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is hazy yellow colored and pours a small and unstable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma has clear tones of spices, wheat, hops and some fruity notes. The taste is light bodied and smooth. Tones of honey and wheat are also noticable and a light hint of hops, but further very watery. The finish is watery, soft and light bitter. Pretty boring beer, but the smooth taste made it a little drinkable.

Bontus (689) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle, Albert Heijn. 355ml. Pours golden, white head. Typical wheat nose, phenolic, slightly sour. Medicine like. Bit dull aroma, but good for the style. No flaws, wheat upfront but for once without an overdose of coriander.
