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.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Pours a light yellow with a thick white head. The aroma is wheat, lemons, and fresh cut grass. The taste is slightly funky off-tasting wheat (not too bad), lemon, and water. Pretty inoffensive wheat beer. Easy to drink a lot of these. Not all that great, a little boring, a little funky from the wheat going bad, nothing special.

Ysok02 (1000) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Robe blonde, fine mousse. Nez assez basique, farine, fruit jaunes, pointe d’agrumes. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, du fruit, de la fraîcheur, mais un certain manque de complexité et de profondeur. Agréable sans plus.

psilosophy (672) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - SEP 13, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl, couleur jaune pale, mousse moyenne, aucune tenue. A part des arômes de paic citron, je n’ ai rien trouvé d’ autres. Carbonnation faible. Je conçois que la bouteille a peut être subie une avarie mais en l’ état rien d’ intéressant. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Canned at Tim Can. Pretty average. Mostly malt but lacks crispness. Not a fan.

Schlumpfhunter (144) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2016
Farbe: trübes orangegelb Schaum: keiner. Nase: ganz leicht nach Weizen, minimal Keller. Geschmack: sehr feinperlig sprudlig und bitter auf der Zunge. Wird um Abgang dann weicher Gerste. Richtung Nachgeschmack könnte ich vielleicht noch die auf der Flasche angekündigte Zitrone wahrnehmen. Hm Bier wäre noch ein Jahr haltbar. Schmeckt man nicht. Überhaupt nicht meins. Gattin merkt an dass ihre Flasche am Tag zuvor anders und besser gewesen wäre. War wohl im Eimer?

Had as a " mystery beer" at hidden tree house bar.... Was quite smooth and had various flavors start to finish. Not bitter at all. Better than I expected.
