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.

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.

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.

zombywoof (450) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 28, 2006
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.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2006
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.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Shared with Immy. From bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Nose is musty wheat and light lemon. Flavor follows with a rough, metallic aftertaste. Lightly carbonated palate.

Bottle: Pours a dull orange color with virtually no head. Has an earthy aroma with some hops and slight citrus. The taste is very uninspiring... itís almost like a cross breed between a major macro and an average hefeweizen. It finishes on an almost sour note. For a beer, itís ok.... comparatively to other wheat beers, itís not good.

valpoaj (631) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2006
Pours a bright white cloudy head with a characteristic wheat body. Aroma is somewhat odd...not necessarily pleasant, but not really bad either. Nice on the palate with a nice, smooth finish, but the flavor is somewhat lacking, with an empty feel to the brew. A light fruity flavor, particularly lemony, is evident, but overall, this beer was hollow and lacked any distinguishable trait...somewhat of a disappointment

Just a pretty standard american wheat style here. Nothing special about it. Itís got just a slight wheat flavor, and good bite.
