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.

Bottle 355ml, a copper beer with medium head. Aroma is on caramel, sugar notes, did not get the wheat, like a belgian blond, correct for the alcohol level, light fruits.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Had this at Giordanos with a slice of lemon (wtf giordano’s?...) - The beer itself is like a witbier without the belgian touch, but with american hops! Very good, flavors of lemon, coriander, wheat banana and cloves. Crisp and light. Finishes off with a nice low bitterness.

Cerveza color dorada ligeramente turbia con una corona pequeña de burbujas. Al aroma de percibe un aroma dulce con sutil aroma a trigo. Al paladar se perciben notas secas con ligeras notas dulces al final. Cerveza ligera apropiada para aquellos que gustan de cervezas frescas poco amargas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a can while the dog watches from couch while the neighbor is weed eating. Wife will make me soon as her parents are coming but for now I am enjoying this beer on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsporrer (582) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden straw yellow with a thin white ring. Not much of an aroma and not much wheat flavor. Not as good as I had expected it might be.

Fles 0,33 liter. Thuis gedronken. Dit is wel een apart biertje het smaakt een beetje IPA achtig.

skmikeg (1703) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Pours light orange with a half finger white head which faxes to virtually no lacing. Aroma is of grainy wheat, light spices, citrus, light stale and some faint cardboard. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of light sweet malts. Has a light body with a watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-short finish. Overall, a rather bland, light, but drinkable wheat ale that might be a good lawnmower beer.

TEJA (2190) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
Draught at the Universal studios Mulligans Irish pub in LA. Very fruity aroma that isn’t just the normal banana. No head and very clowdy appearance. Fruity taste and much body for a wheat beer.
