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.

Poured hazy gold. Had a little bit of a piney scent and taste to it kinda like a baby IPA.

Quality microbrew and a pleasant surprise on board United; too hoppy for my own hedonistic tastes of course, but itís a fairly complex and layered beer for a 4.2% abv/for this style. Not a bad intro to the hipster-ish US scene :)

Little to differentiate this from countless other beers (just the barest hint of wheat). Best feature is itís low alcohol content - not that Iíd be tempted to have another.

Pours a cloudy gold color with great lacing. Has poor head retention though. Tastes of hay and wheat. A good beer, but nothing memorable.

Very easy drinking, smooth and nice beer. It has a bit fo a wheat stink to it tha tI like, makes you remember that itís not a pale lager. Not too much sweetness.

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 itís very long lasting. not an offensive beer but not a world beater either.
