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.

Bottle from red elephant in truro uk. Looks nice - pale wheaty yellow with soft white head. Good carb. Pretty boring taste and aroma. Don't get much aroma - very slight wheaty ness. Taste is bland - very easy drinking but not of the right type in my opinion. Not massively far away from a main stream lager in taste ( apart from the wheat). I'll stick to german and Belgian wheats if this is what an American wheat is like (first one). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (6718) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. It pours hazy gold with a decent white head. The nose is wheat, dough, apricot, peach and some grain. The taste is crisp, creamy, wheat, lemon, grain, dough and grass with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, easy drinkable. Ok.

vulcanmeister (196) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured a golden blonde with large white head. Aroma was grainy, hoppy with some citrus. Flavor mildly sweet with fruit and crisp hoppy bite. Medium light body. Refreshing drink on a hot day.

On tap at a Rays game. Golden in color with small white head. Sweet flavor with wheat notes. Light bodied and easy drinking. Not bad.

commonshawn (358) - - AUG 14, 2014
Pint. Gold with small white head. Smells of citrus and off grain. Light in body and flavor. Watery for a wheat beer. Used to love this beer, but pretty convinced it’s been changed, and just doesn’t have the flavor and body I used to like.

Herbicles69 (48) - Parker, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2014
From bottle poured into pint glass. Purchased in Denver. Unique citrusy sour mixed with a hefeweizen. Definitely a unique flavor for a wheat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HIGHB4LL (482) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2014
On tap. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, amber gold color, good lacing, clear. Aroma: wheat, light caramel, light floral light roast wheat. Palate: light body, light bitter finish, average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet malt and wheat into light bitter. Overall, too wheaty, but drinkable. Something to be drank on a hot day in quantity.

Maybe my favorite summer beer. Not nearly as sweet as oberon. Better on draft. .....
