Appearance is hazy golden with little head that eventually fades to none at all. Aroma is mild lemon peel, spicy yeast, pear, coriander, and honey. Taste is remarkably balanced between very yeasty/spicy, pear, and honey. Body is medium, sticky, average carbonation, lush finish. Overall, a very tasty and well balanced brew from Goose, went exceptionally well with my grilled wahoo entree at Frontera Grill!

On tap at Girl and the Goat in Chicago. A nice belgian wheat. Aroma is bready. Taste is mainly citrusy. Very lite on the hops which I like. One of the best of this kind that I’ve had. Hope they start bottling and distributing this one

Enjoyed on tap at the mega Whole Foods while getting groceries and watching the Champions league final. Appearance somewhat cloudy golden hue with thin white head that rims around the chalice glass. Aroma of Belgian yeast, cloves, banana, and slight bubble gum. Taste is pretty smooth with a slight crispness in the end, not really a ’bite’ per se but just a crisp finish. This has a bit of spice probably from the clove, the banana is also somewhat diminished. One flavor doesn’t stand out, it is well balanced and flavorful but also a bit light. Its nice, a good beer. I wouldn’t say its worth $8 though.

rubbishystuff (2259) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2016 At small bar on Fullerton. My first reaction was that this beer has a lot of flavors going on. I found it difficult to place many of the flavors but after reading the description I see that is has some unusual stuff. I think that the combination of spices and additives works however it might have been a little too sweet. Serving: Tap

On tap at Revolution. Pours a very lightly hazed, orange-golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fairly fruity and floral. A bunch of apricot jelly, citrus with a nice lemon-grass, herbal tea, lime, some wheat and bready pale malts, clean hibiscus, a touch of yeast and pepper, and a hint of coriander. Flavor is similar with a bit more coriander and herbal tea sticking out. Lots of florals, bready and very smooth pale malts, some wheat, a light lemon-grass and lime, lightly spiced hibiscus, and a bit of a yeasty spice. Finishes with a distinct coriander along with a very smooth, bready pale malt sweetness and some apricot-citrus. Lightly spiced bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light body and very soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Lightly spiced with a nice floral fruitiness, some citrus, and pleasant herbal notes. Very smooth and soft with an easy drinking pale, somewhat bready, wheat maltiness. Nice one.

Served to hard plastic during this year’s Summertime dock party at the Fulton brewery. Displayed a hazed, golden hue, with light creaminess to the off white head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was a hint of yeast, lightly herbal, spice as coriander, some citrus, but also some mid-fruit/apricot sweetness. Tasty, light bodied and fairly effervescent.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Marisol... Pours a slightly hazy apple cidery hue with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of clove, brown sugar and spice... Flavors follow suit with a semisweet triple profile with a decent degree of spicing involved. Finishes on a semi-dry note overall. A bit overly spiced. 6/3/6/3/12

dark gold with a murky peach center, light off white head... lots of yeast with lemongrass, spice and citrus, doesn’t really go together... the taste has more tea than anything, coriander, ginger and grapefruit, hate the finish, a little of this was more than enough

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
Sampled on tap at the GI Invasion Event at SmallBar Fullerton (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice well hazed golden pour, with small frothy bubbly. Touches of big citrus rind, honey, and touches of yeast. Bready dough, some honeysuckle. Gentle. Initial is lighter bodied, maybe into medium with vibrant citrus, honey, bread dough, light yeastiness. A good lively citrus flavor dominates, tangerines and lemon rinds, touches of yeast, bread dough, and malty breads. A lively citrus and lighter body than expected. Touches of coriander, citrusy hops mesh well into the bigger rind and provides a decent bitter finish. Good Belgian with a great citrus rind influence, a touch of spice, flavorful yet light, spritzy lightly acidic citrus bursts. Not bad, a bit sweet. Could be more dried out.
