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.

G: Poured into a weizen glass. A: Pours a pale yellow with a hint a lemony brightness. Slightly cloudy with a good amount of carbonation bubbles. Two-finger white head. S: Sweet with some citrus spice. T: Sweet with pale malt and a definite citrus glaze. An ever-so-slight amount of bitterness. M: A little bit heavy on the carbonation. Also, a tiny bit too much citrus on the swallow. D: Clean, light, refreshing. Good summer beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-24-2009

Bottle. Golden with a small head and slightly hazy. Gentle trace of wheat with some bitterness added. Pleasant if uninspiring.

Nice beer with colour reminding of desert sands or even camel of long journey. It has refreshing taste after long day of work in field. Sweet flavor like glorious golden mounds of beaut lady on movie screen. I am recomend this to friends and serve during festival party of many.

This wheat bier will not disappoint you at all. Top it with an orange slice, and it will take you to the Windy City (Chicago is!). Somehow, I prefer Chicago girls over New York lassies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (511) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Date tasted: June 19, 2013... Glassware: pilsner glass... Occasion: NBA Finals Game 7--it better be fantastic for the Spurs!... Appearance: golden body with enough effervescence to steady a massive off-white head that fills the 22 oz. glass; laces to a misty top... Aroma: citric refreshment with Cascade and lemony zest; fresh and appropriate for a fan-cooled evening... Palate: soft yet active at the throat; enough substance to be considered between sips--refreshing and drinkable... Taste: not as much taste as the aroma suggests; lemony fizz and some undergirding hops... Overall: Lucky enough to have had this on tap a week ago in Chicago; this bottle is similar in mouthfeel and sudsy flavor; crisp and effective in its refreshment--havenít really had a bad Goose Island yet....
