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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pint at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Fizzy yellow, not much head. Weird prickly overcarbonation. Nose of grain, corn, wheat, and some grassy hops. Taste is sweet and any real flavor is obscured by bubbles. Blech.

BOSSbrewer (1474) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Had this at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a hazy yellow with some white head. Some wheat on the aroma. Flavor is almost non-existent. Very dull beer.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a hazy yellow, with a thin halo of white head. Aroma of bread, wheat and very light lemon zest. Yeasty flavours, with some lemongrass and apricots. Finish was very light; some grass and grain.

generallee08 (596) - New York, USA - JUL 15, 2014
It has a very light hazy straw yellow color with some fine yeast sediment in suspension. There is a little visible carbonation as well that helps support it nice foamy white head. The head hangs on well and makes a few cool lace rings near the top of the glass. Smell: The aroma is light and has a simple clean bready/yeast character. Taste/Palate: There is a light clean bready/biscuit like malt base with a very light hop bitterness. The finish is snappy and the light body and texture are refreshing.

Draft. Pours a hazy yellow. Nice white head. Nose is bread and wheat. Taste is some lemon. Meh.

rxeight (1216) - Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
16oz can displaying proud images of Chicago, but the fine print says it was brewed and canned in NY and Colorado, not sure how it was brewed and canned in both. Brewed in one, canned in the other? Can half filled and sent to the other plant? Either way dated mar 30 of this year. Consumed straight from the can, so canít comment on the appearance. Taste is crisp and has an almost juicy red apple taste. Sort of a creamy texture. Overall, not bad. I remember liking the stuff way back when it was tap only, stopped drinking it when I moved to IPAs, and really never looked back. Either way, this is a decent beer. Iíll drink it if the alternative is BMC.

kerenmk (2195) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at work. Clear gold, white head. Floral, some citrus peel. Slightly tarty, fruity with delicate bitterness. Light body, plastic aftertaste. Mediocre.

Ericular (567) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with thick white head. Aroma is light with yeast and grain. Taste is sweet, approachable, bready, grainy. Not bad, not good.

This is one of those retro ratings. This beer just was average to me, nothing that made me hat it or wAnt to buy it again.

MarkSachon (553) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bland and insipid, with a heavy dryness. Every swallow was a struggle.

ROBC3366 (535) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Yellow golden color, slightly hazy, white thick head. Aromas of yeast and spices. Sweet taste, malts, yeast, some sweet fruits, maybe some bread. Sweet aftertaste, sticky-oily mouthfeel. Light body with medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
