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!

12 oz bottle poured at United club at Dulles airport. Pretty standard fare. Little bit of citrus smell and taste. Easy to drink for sure.

bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head and an aroma of white bread, dough, metal and something sweet. The taste is mildly sweet, with some slight bitterness and metal in the finish. a pretty forgettible beer.

Vili (177) - FINLAND - SEP 8, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy pale golden pour with thin white head, no lacing. Aromas of fresh bread, iron and leather. Taste is low on bitter, a bit sweet, bland with taste of metal. Aftertaste is short, watery and, again, metallic. Expected more from this.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is banana, wheat, and hops. The taste is the same. It was creamy and a bit heavy. It was pretty good though.

AgentAle (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2015
Aroma is pale but there is banana, clove and pineapple with some sweet malts. Taste is sweet wheat, clove and straw. Sadly finishes fairly flatly. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains ok.

jsmanigold (102) - Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2015
No thanks real impressed with this. Should be classified as a pale ale. Way too hoppy to be a wheat ale.

Kleurplaatje (104) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2015
Pours clear golden with a white head that disappears with a quick pace. Strong wheaty and citrusy aroma. Floral hints and some clear yellow fruits as well. Sweet nose if you ask me. Taste is smoothly soft. Sweet, yeasty with a small citrusy kick. Nice, yet bland however, and with the absent bitterness and average (yeasty) aftertaste, this misses quite a lot. Watery texture and light bodied with heavy carbonation. Enjoyable brew, ideal as a thirst-quencher, but nothing more.
