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.

On tap at RattleíníHum. Medium lite cereal grain flavor. A bit malty and toast-like. Lite on the hops.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle. Aroma has notes of citrus and banana. Pale yellow clear hue with an average white foamy head that diminished and left little lace. Flavor is sweet and mild then fades fast. Palate is very light bodied and watery with decent carbonation. Overall it tasted more like a macro light beer with some citrus than a craft brewed wheat ale. Refreshing though.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5078) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2012
My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. Fairly disappointing given my fondness for wheat beers. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a small creamy white head. The aroma was tart, citric and a bit lactic. The flavor was dryish and a bit wheaty with notes of tart citrus and bread. Medium length tart citrus and bread finish. Light body. Eh.

When you get to a bar and this is the best beer they have, itís a great beer. But given the opportunity, I would have most other options from Goose Island.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2012
a very light tasting beer, there is a strong hint of lemon zest, which is the dominate flavor and doesnít offer not much else. is very clean and partially flavorless. call it refreshing on hot days.

jjgmd (1507) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2012
On tap in NYC. Pours a light golden yellow, nose is grainy. Not terribly flavorful, and very very light, which makes it a thirst quencher and drinkable. Average at best.

33cl bottle @ Monks Cafe Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy yellow color, small to med sized white head. Smell malts, herbs, flowers and spices. Taste malts, some wheat, herbs, slightly flowers. Low body, low carbo.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; I suppose you have to have a bad beer to appreciate how good beer can be. Like a watered down wheat weak flavour slight spice undercurrent.

Mute nose with a hint of wheaty yeast. Mouth is brighter than I thought. Hop profile is nice. Citrus only though. Finish is clean pilsner like. Ok not the best but fun. ---That dog will hunt!
