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.

There is a lot of hype about this beer, since Iím next to the 312 area code, but there isnít too much to back it up for me. It is slightly too light, slightly too muddled, slightly complex and not much else. I guess it has a pleasant taste and is easy to drink, in the summer that is.

Pours golden with some white head. A citrusy and spicy aroma. Low bitter finish. Boring, but makes a good summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Batavi (143) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2015
Fles gekocht bij AH, uitgeschonken in Sint Crispijn tulpglas. Troebel blond bier, met kleine witte schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt, slechts een dunne schuimring blijft op het bier drijven. Lichte Aroma's van graanmout, citrus en Belgische gist, zacht kruidige hop. De smaak volgt de geur: verfrissend, iets zoet, licht zurig, citrusfruit, mout, Belgische gist, honing en licht kruidige hopsoorten. De afdronk is iets waterig, zacht hopbitter met een medium carbonatie. Zeker geen onaardig bier, absoluut niet complex, en behoorlijk waterig, wel verfrissend en dorstlessend, echt een zomerbier.

rdb84 (323) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2015
Slightly murky light yellow, very small head. Aroma: large citrus and lime aroma, mixed with a wheaty Weisen aroma. Taste: watery, mostly. Starts crisp and light with hints of citrus and Weisen. Develops a Pilsener like bitterness. Light body. Aftertaste is wheaty. A bit uninspired.

Draft. Poured a clear straw yellow with little head. Aroma was almost non-existant with mild fruit notes. Flavor was peach, straw, and almost had a belgian taste to it. Light body, think texture, bubbly carbonation, smooth finish. Just not good.
