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.

Great summer beer! Smooth with just the right bite at the end, more than a few is not a problem!

Keg @ Firefly. Hazy gold with a small head. Nose is Apple and peach, honeyed bread. Flavor is pretty bready. Wheat character. Honey and white sugar. Simple and easy drinking.

prawlie (1206) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Slightly opaque gold. Smells nice, wheaty, albeit with a bit of lemonade. A nice wheat ale, very refreshing and fruity. Pretty solid stuff that you could drink happily for a session.

ccex (982) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2015
16 oz. can pours a hazy yellow with a two finger white head and very little lacing. Aroma is muted, but has wheat, grass, and a hint of malts. Tastte is middle-of-the road verging toward bitter instead of sweet. Body is light with average carbonation and with a crisp mouthfeel. I;m sorry that I’m rating this in January rather than after mowing the lawn in July, when it would seem more refreshing and less boring.

Golden malty goodness. This is a good beer! It has everything that a well balanced beer should have! Highly recommend!

Mainuh_man (250) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is faint: some waxiness and herby hops. Flavor is also pretty muted. A bit of nutty sweetness at beginning, then dominated by a mild, ascerbic herby hop character. Medium-light body with a thin, yet creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, really not very good at all.

Aggiebob (55) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Draft poured a hazy gold with a slight citrus aroma. The taste is a little bit bitter with a hint of a citrus taste (orange?) and a smooth finish.

Bamsen78 (3571) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of malt, hops and citrus, with notes of yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of citrus and yeast and malty touches. Acidic and rough finish. Lively carbonation but the mouthfeel is slightly watery nonetheless. Okay, drinkable, but nothing particularly impressive.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, first time rating it on ratebeer, have had it on tap in Chicago. I don’t smell most the aromas since I am sick. A very, very good wheat beer. A very well balanced beer not overpowering in any category.

grundsow (102) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Average. Middle of the road. Typical for the bland “wheat beer” style. Nothing to get excited about, nothing to be offended by. Probably everyone will like it, yet no one will love it. Yawn.

Better than the Pale ale of the same name. By a lot. Fuck that other beer. But, by the same token this beer is pretty average, so whatever.
