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.

Pours clear yellow until the bottom of the bottle. Then a swirly haze hits the glass. Really neat looking. Aroma is wheat and spicy yeast. Flavor is tame. Nothing really there. Thin body. Easy drinking ale but lacks some of the qualities of a good wheat ale.

Scopey (6711) - 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.

smaynard6000 (624) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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 (354) - - 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 itís been changed, and just doesnít have the flavor and body I used to like.

Herbicles69 (47) - 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 (480) - 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. .....

Eh nothing to see here. A rather unassuming beer. Bordering way more on the pilsner spectrum with a light toasty grain aspect than it is on the hefe or wheat spectrum. Little bit of of lemon aroma but struggling to find much past that.
