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.

Bottle at Potterís. 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.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Slightly cloudy, yet stil transparant yellow beer with a firm brownish layer of foam. It has a somewhat freshly sour aroma, like from a fresh lemon, with a sweet touch. A nice, soft, bitter-sour taste and it leaves a nice, dry palate. Een iets troebel, doch nog transparant lichtgeel gekleurd bier met een stevige, compacte bruinachtige kraag. Het aroma is fris zuur, zoals van verse citroen, met een zoete tint. Een lekker, zacht bitterdere smaak met een lekkere droge afdronk.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2016
A light fruity taste, some yeast. The beer has no head, the body is cloudy and pale yellow. A light fruity taste with some citrus. The body is light and lively with a lot of carbonation.

Docavey (52) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Had this from the bottle with Marc. Light fruity aroma and taste. Wheat beer but less pronounced than many others. Light mouth feel. Some hops add a little bitterness on the finish. After all it is from Goose Island! F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cervmagpt (656) - PORTUGAL - JUN 1, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 1D). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: low grainy and slight doughy aroma. slight malt sweetness. faint citrusy hop note. APPEARANCE: pale yellow color and slightly hazy. small white head with poor retention. TASTE: low grainy malt flavor with slight cardboard notes. medium-low to low bitterness. no hop flavors PALATE: medium-low to low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: an american wheat ale that lost its charm maybe due to be at the end of its Best Before date.
