COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

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, it’s a great beer. But given the opportunity, I would have most other options from Goose Island.

Bottle pours cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of fruit and wheat malt. Taste is slight spice, fruity, and corn. Body is light. I dont need to taste again.

a very light tasting beer, there is a strong hint of lemon zest, which is the dominate flavor and doesn’t offer not much else. is very clean and partially flavorless. call it refreshing on hot days.

Chicago Real Ale Fest draft inside the brewery. The glass I was served in contained a large head of white colored finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a minimal lace. The body was straw yellow in color and softly carbonated. The aroma was floral wheaty and mold in the nose. The mouth feel was tingly and smooth with a mild wheat finish that was somewhat flat. It had a mild thin malty wheat flavor.

312, dammit, this used to be my area code before chicago went and stole it, then they stole whatever they replaced it with and left 630. As for the beer, it is yellow, has the aroma of hay and citrus zest, boring body to it, blah, and dont let it get warm.

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 shouldn’t 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.

Pours a dirty, light straw color with a small, scuzzy head. Aromas are bready with some pear notes underneath. Flavor is about the same. Pretty mild and boring.
