2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle.<!-- br --> Pours a light yellow with a large head that quickly disapates leaving decent lacing. Nose is light, bready with a very thin fruity component. Flavor is watered down, somewhat skunky, apple juice. Itís not undrinkable, just not something to be seeking out.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow hazy pour with a fluffy white head and some wheat floaties that actually add a little character to this beer. Aromas of lemon yeast and well its kinda like cat piss. Very watery in the mouth, citrusy and yeasty with a little bit of hops in the finish. Leaves an almost metallic taste. The good thing is they are selling a hell of a lot of these which will hopefully get them more money for better projects.

How about 411, have you seen a flavorful wheat beer? Not here. I suppose the "urban" quality just ran over any of the farmhouse feel to this style but this was just aweful. Never been a fan of GI but this was just bad.

First time Iíve been disappointed with a GI product. Poured a cloudy blonde with a healthy head. The aroma was foul, but there wasnít much of it so Iíll give them some points there. Flavor was sweet with bananas and a little malt. Just not much there.
