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.

Bottle to sampler cup. Pours a light yellow, clear & sparse head. Watery and basic. Seems they brew this to compete with macrobrew wheats like blue moon & shocktop. Meh.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a very tiny white head that disappears rapidly. Aroma is lightly sweet, malty and yeast. Taste is crunchy thanks to the wheat malt and refreashing with some carbonatation and there is not bitterness at the end. Is just a regular wheat ale very drinkable.

willisread (203) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 21, 2015
12oz bottle from Mitsuyaís 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.

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.

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

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.

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