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.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2005 tap-old chicago-rockford, IL-pours cloudy yellow with a decent white head-aroma was yeasty, wheaty, and grainy. flavors are slighty hoppy and grainy, but quite refreshing i thought. Not as bad as others say it is. This would be a good refresher on a hot NM day!

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 (1213) - 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.

Bottle. Light sweet apple, banana and wheat aroma. Hazy orange-yellow color with small head. Lemon wheat flavor. Nothing special - an average Am wheat.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Draught from The Pub poured into shaker with a lemon garnish - Pours clear gold with a very minimal head; Lemon and wheat to the nose; Lemon, wheat and a hint of pine hops on the initial taste; A bland wheat backtaste; Medium watery palate; Too much carbonation; Not impressed. Goose Island is normally spot on with their brews, but this one leaves a good bit to be desired. Lots of the lemon probably came from the garnish.

hotstuff (4424) - Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle at Pier 32 in Hamilton, IN. Marked best when consumed by 022107. Poured a very small off-white head that quickly dissipated, sparse lacing, visible carbonation, slightly cloudy, and a yellow hue. Nose was sweet, wheat, spicy, hops, fruity, and crisp. Flavor was sweet, thin, wheat, spicy, some maltiness, and a little bit fruity. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and a bit thin. Light body. A so-so brew.

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.

It really isnít as bad as some make it out to be. Itís just a little less than what one would expect from Goose Island. Tasted orange and lemon fruitiness with not much on typical beer flavors (malt or yeast). But itís still one I will be drinking again.

hezron (611) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Gift from Brigadier, thanks! Aroma of subtle banana, lemon, very subtle cherry or other red, berry-like fruit. Pale yellow, with a touch of cloudiness and a thin, white head. Light flavors of lemon and banana and a quick finish with a touch of graininess. Light palate, slightly watery. Quick drinking beer without major flaws.

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.
