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.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2006
12oz. Bottle: I thought it looked quite thin and not appatizing, until I looked a little closer. There was a steady carbonation moving throughout and a strange suspended lacing that was beautiful in a beer kind of way. The head explodes foamy only to dissapate immidieatly following an agressive pour. The aroma is grassy, citrus, urine, doughy, pine. The flavor is well ... less than the 6 I gave the aroma. Very dissapointing. Its a Goose Island, it shouldnít be bad, but there is almost nothing there. The palate is stiff, stale and biting. Not a beer I will try twice unfortuantly.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Pours pale and hazy with a frothy head. The aroma is mild with a citric character. Boring and unsubstantial. Thin body.

Bottle: Very average and one of the worst Goose Island beers that I have had. Pours yellow with a full head. Aroma of wheat. Not much flavor.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2008
Hazey golden pour with medium head. Aroma is of wheat and maybe some honey. Taste is the same but more dominant wheat with a hint of spice. Smooth brew but nothing special. Not really worth a purchase.

Average beer weak taste over all. still far better then a normal commercial American beer such as Bud or Miller. Golden in color decent balance, weak head that leaves early on.

IPAaLLtHEwAY (142) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Pours golden yellow with a thick cloudy appearance and a small white head. The aroma is very citrusy, whearas the flavor is of wheat and yeast and hops. Not the best goose island, but very refreshing.

Bottle. This is very light. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is kind of plain just some very mild citrus. Flavor isn’t bland but it is rather boring. Smooth and drinkable but I doubt I’ll drink it again.

Not much here at all. I could drink it so it wasn’t a total bomb. Light hazy color. Fairly bland taste.
