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.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Cloudy golden color with a small but sustained white head. Wheat and some citrus notes in the aroma. Creamy wheat mouthfeel and flavor. Not great but does the job on a warm day.

kseecs16 (1209) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured a golden that was barely hazy with a thin white head, very pale. A mild citric fruit aroma with some sweetness. A pretty tart flavor but lacking the richness of a usual wheat. Had a clean, crisp finish. A bit bland.

shrubber85 (8603) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Light sweet apple, banana and wheat aroma. Hazy orange-yellow color with small head. Lemon wheat flavor. Nothing special - an average Am wheat.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy-clear yellow with lively carbonation. Hoppy and grassy on the nose. Tastes of flat grass with faint lemon and green vegetables thrown in a blender and pureed. Watery mouthfeel, but not too watery. Average at best.

arminjewell (8461) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours yellow with white head, aroma is fruity and ester filled. Taste is fruity up front and thins into some malt with a kind of lackluster finish thatís slightly sweet.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2010
Little hazy yellow. Thin in both colour and palate. Lots of citrus and some sweet wheat malt. I had high hopes on this. They were not fulfilled.

Just another wheat. Thatís all I got. Chris had one of these that he brought with him from Columbus. Iím sure they brew better stuff than this.

Hazy pale golden colour with small white head. Fruity hoppy wheaty aroma with some sweetness, cereal and hints of rubber. Flavour is fruity hoppy with malty sweetness. Easy but decent Wheat Ale. Smooth.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
On tap at their Clybourne brewpub. A fairly clearn, yellow-gold body with a bleached two inch head in the weizen glass. The aroma is heavily subdued and I can barely smell a thing. An incredibly light, near watery mouthfeel with frothy footing that brings her to light-medium body. The front is smooth, with a tide of carbonation rising on the mid-back end of the palate, tied to a lemony citrus bite that lingers past the fall of the bitterness. A nice little wheat beer--unimpressive but respectable in its balance. The story here lies in the bite mid-end.
