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.

A pale wheat ale. Hints of citrus. Drank cold and went down easy. A little hoppy on the back end but nothing that detracts from the taste. Would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

Vir4030 (508) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Beautiful pour of orange fog with a nice foamy head that lasts. Smells light and a hint of citrus. Taste is real smooth and light, but not a lot there.

Pours yellow gold. Got this on the house from the waitress, so this rating is skewed.

Very smooth, crisp and fruity. Delicious wheat beer with a great name. Definitely worth buying, very refreshing after a long day.

While technically a wheat, its very clear, and is almost more lager than wheat. Wonderful cascade flavor. Iíve had it in both bottle, and draft, and the bottle is much better. The hop profile seems to get lost on tap.
