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.

Faint citrus and noble hops aroma with additional buttered biscuit and vegetable esters. The taste hasa a citric twang with a mild malt base. Chalky and lightly bitter upon the finish.

A great basic beer. I could drink a few of these in a row. Don't suffer with light beer when you can have one of these for 135 calories: my go to drink.

Pours a cloudy straw with a thin white head. Smells of melted honey and wheat. Taste has a hint of honey and banana but it’s very long lasting. not an offensive beer but not a world beater either.

"I have a bit of a soft spot for hoppy wheats. This one is light, but does the trick. Light wheat, yeasty spice and citrus hops combined to make a light refreshing brew. 38 in Chicago, but I’m in the airport pretending its warmer."

Transfer from BA review on 4-16-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a big and billowy white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is of a grainy wheat smell with a strong hint of a lemon citrus and some sweeter fruit aromas of an orange nature. Mixed with all these are some aromas of a yeasty and grassy aroma as well. Taste- The taste begins with a smooth bready flavor upfront. As the taste moves on, more grainy wheat flavors come to the tongue with some of the citrus detected in the nose coming to the tongue as well. The citrus is quite light however and is much less then would have been detected in the nose. The little bit of lemon and wheat flavors are soon joined by some grassy hop and more yeasty flavors in the end, leaving a rather smooth and crisp wheat bread flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the slightly lighter side in its thickness with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thinner body is nice for keeping it a refreshing brew while the medium carbonation is good for balancing the drinkability with the nice grainy flavors. Overall – A rather refreshing and quite nice drinking brew. It has a nice light body with a good blend of grainy wheat and light grassy and citrus flavors to make for a good session brew.
