Sampler flight on tap at Goose Island Clybourn (Chicago, IL). Pours a straw yellow hue, gentle haze, light carbonation in the body. A big cakey bright white head laces well. Golden sunshine glow. Aromas offer gentle straw, apple, flaked hweat. Gentle dough, dry earthy florals and grass. A gentle spice, apple estery fruit. Initial is gentle body, lighter with a touch of body into the middle, some bland bread malts, straw, and grass. Hay, apple, wet dough, gentle sweetness. Middle a bit more bland sweetness. Touch of tartness, apple linger into the backend. Touch of earth, gentle spice into finish. Simple, apple driven, a touch tart. Mellow earthy and touch of lemon hop come into play at times. Meh. Hops grow as I settle in and show a bit more into the middle.

Pours straw yellow with white head. Aroma of hay, lemon, flavors are citrusy, hay, lemon peel. Bright and crisp, really light, nice hallertau character, and easy drinking. Would be nice in a heat wave.

Straw color with a huge head. Aroma of yeast and grain. Mouth burns a bit. Taste is clean with wheat and hints of light fruit. Very easy drinking.

December 23, 2012 on tap at clybourn. Clear yellow pour with nice head. Noce wheat beer with some citrus hops in the aroma and taste. Thin bodied with some carbonation. Really needed something light after all the BCS today.

Draft at Clybourn. Pours a quite clear pale gold with a sticky white head. The nose is quite herbal, hints of citrus and spicy noble hopping. Some subtle wheat comes across. On tasting, it is firmly bitter and a touch spicy, good malt profile with wheat noted. Clean and crisp, a nice drinker though more of a summer beer, imo.
