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.

Cracked wheat and orange aromas. Taste is syrupy oranges and cracked wheat.

jsmanigold (101) - Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2015
No thanks real impressed with this. Should be classified as a pale ale. Way too hoppy to be a wheat ale.

Kleurplaatje (100) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015
Pours clear golden with a white head that disappears with a quick pace. Strong wheaty and citrusy aroma. Floral hints and some clear yellow fruits as well. Sweet nose if you ask me. Taste is smoothly soft. Sweet, yeasty with a small citrusy kick. Nice, yet bland however, and with the absent bitterness and average (yeasty) aftertaste, this misses quite a lot. Watery texture and light bodied with heavy carbonation. Enjoyable brew, ideal as a thirst-quencher, but nothing more.

lbianchi66 (123) - FRANCE - AUG 17, 2015
Robe orangée et opaque. Le peu de mousse qui se forme se dissipe rapidement. Saveurs dominantes de malt, biscuit, légères notes de fruits jaunes. Malheureusement, cette bière est aqueuse et courte en bouche. Une blanche médiocre.

GuenSmith (28) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours golden yellow with nice foam head that dissipates quickly, slight cloudiness. Nose has notes of malt, grass, and wheat. Taste is similar to smell with notes of malt, and wheat dominating. Beer is light on the palate, a nice easy unsophisticated drinker.

jksipa (542) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at Potter’s. Light grain nose with light toffee and citrus. Not much wheat character with a light sweet body. Minimal spice. Thin body with moderate carbonation. Forgettable.

Een tarwebier, dat ook een duidelijke hoptoon heeft. Blond, licht troebel en een lichte schuimkraag. Lekker.

Straight from the bottle. This beer is definitely good for a warm summers day. Refreshing

Percy0103 (297) - MEXICO - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. A semi-cloudy beer with a medium size foamy white head that fades away after a couple of minutes. It has a fruity aroma of wheat, lemon and citrics. Taste is very mild. It has a lot of carbonation and very faint astringency. Very light bodied. Aftertaste is somewhat malty. Very drinkable but very close to a macro.
