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.

se presenta con un color amarillo claro media turbia con un ligero toque citrico, muy suave al paladar sin aromas ni sabores particulares,muy buena para quitar la sed en el verano caliente

Bottle. Enjoyed this one before the craft beer revolution took me over, but after some context, this is a pretty poor wheat beer.

Slightly hazy yellow brew with the smell of lemon. Other than the lemon zest there doesnít seem to be much else going for this one. Pretty boring brew with nothing really making me want to purchase more. Glad I got a sampler bottle rather than a whole six pack.

ARH (158) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma nothing special. Itís not offense, but itís faint faint. It has some light citrusy-sweet aroma to it (mostly lemon), accompanied by some floral notes and a light hop scent. It pours straw yellow with a thin, white head that, pours strong, but recedes quickly. Thereís nothing too dramatic in the taste either; having a mild sweetness throughout, and a light, pleasantly sour note at the finish. Initially tastes lemony with some bread-like flavor to it - maybe some clove-like spice in there too. It finishes closer to apple juice with some orange in it. The initial sips are highly carbonated, and the fizziness keeps some presence throughout, but by the end, itís a bit more malty and syrupy. Generally finishes clean, although pairing it with food seems to recall the apple traces in the flavor and a very faint hop taste. Although my scores are generally low, this has been a goto session beer for me for a long time, and will likely continue to be so - none of the flavors are overwhelming or offensive, so itís a crowd-pleaser and it pairs well with just about any food offering without enhancing or masking any flavors. The ABV and calorie count are relatively low too, so itís easy to throw back a couple of these without doing too much damage.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Crystal yellow huw with small white head. Faint citrus and noble hops aroma with additional buttered biscuit and vegetable esters. The taste hasa a citric twang with a mild malt base. Chalky and lightly bitter upon the finish. Thin-bodied, clean and crisp. Another ho-hum American krystal wheat but without any true yeast characteristics.

jaymobrown (1617) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Light hazy lemon color. No nose presence or anything. Flat, nearly tasteless experience. Some hops and bitterness, but no yeast, no citric flavors. Watery texture made it easy to drink.

Very disappointed in this GI offering. Aroma and taste were very bland. Not much to offer here.

kujo9 (1092) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2005
12 oz bottle: Moderately hazy golden yellow w/ very little thin, white head. Lightly floral w/ grainy and wheat malt aromas. Some over cooked canned corn(DMS) and lightly plasticky aromas as well. Thereís also a Catawba grape fruitiness...odd! Well balanced flavor, wheat malt is predominant. Actually is sort of tastes like Natural Light with hops! Light corn flavor, finish is sort of bland w/ a short lived wheat malt flavored aftertaste. Medium carbonation, smooth m/f, light body. Iím not too hip on some of the aromas like the plasticky or corn, and the flavor is rather bland, even for a wheat.

wxman (1340) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pale gold color clouded by hefe trub. Not much head for a wheat. Fairly pleasant sour aroma. Yeasty flavor with just a hint of grapefruit. Not sweet, not sour, not very flavorful. Inoffensive but nothing to write home about. 312 is the Chicago area code, but if youíre looking for a great wheat beer this is a wrong number.

NachlamSie (2651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2006
bottle. Cloudy lemon color pour with a white head. Aroma is papery and wheaty with not much else going on. More paper and wheat in the flavor with a modicum of citrusy fruit notes. Light, thin, and boring , though not offensive in any way. Goose Island certainly makes more appealing offerings.
