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.

On tap at Tap 25. It pours clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is lemon, orange peel and wheat. The flavor is lemon, orange and wheat…pretty straight forward, but exactly what I want a session wheat ale to taste like, minus a powerful hop display. This would be very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Wheat water. Some Belgian phenolics. Nothing offensive just plain bud wheat water. That’s all I gotta say bout that.

willisread (170) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2015
12oz bottle from Mitsuya’s in Asagaya, Tokyo. Hazy golden yellow with a small quickly dissipating head. Fake honey aroma, with wheat and slight yeast aromas. Powdery on the palate. Not much taste to it at all. Not a good beer.

chucklemation (626) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Pours a hazy yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma is skunky wheat and some lemon. Flavor is sweet malt. Very light in flavor, but it is crisp. Nothing memorable.

Pours a hazy light piss color from a bottle. Not much to speak of, bland aroma and flavor.

Delivers what it promises. Good refreshing summer beer. I give this one a few bonus points because it put goose island on the map. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sdaniel90 (459) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. Clear pale golden with a frothy to minimal white head. Grainy aroma of citrus, cereal, yeasts. Medium to light bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet with no bitterness. Refreshing fruitiness with a plesant maltiness. Easy and drinkable, but nothing special.

Bottle from beer hawk. Aroma of clove and spice, not much else. Taste is nice enough, sweet and crisp. Prickly and medium. Not fantastic, but not terrible.
