Enjoyed at the Best of Milwaukee Beer Dinner last night at Roots in Milwaukee. Pours golden with a medium white head that clings all over the glass. Has a funky, barnyard scent with tangerine. The taste is also creamy with a touch of tangerine and wheat. There is a slight dryness on the finish.

The vanilla nose jumps forward after giving it a swirl. The star of the show is definately the citra hops and lime zest, there is no beer possible to compliment Rick Bayless’ cooking

Tap at Rick Bayless Frontera O’Hare Airport. Golden pour with a one finger white head. Lots of tiny bubbles in the glass. Sweet cereal nose. Taste is fruit loops cereal with coriander and a lingering hop bitterness in the back of my mouth. Full in the mouth. Nice, drinkable, beer with lunch.

Lucky for me I had a layover in Chicago and had this on tap at Frontera. It was a flavor explosion in a very smooth light bodied ale. Ale kinds of tropical fruit and nuance. Complex yet very drinkable!

Enjoyed on-tap @ Citizen Bar in Chicago, IL for $9.50. Tapped from the Black/Silver Goose Island Tap Handle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Ordered two back to back because of the availability of this brew! May never see this hit the St. Louis area.
Aroma- The aroma is very potent with tons of orange, zest, and hop. Malt is introduced towards the end of the smell and is musky and almost Belgian like. Fantastic!
Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that has good retention. The body color is a deep copper color and is semi-hazy. Leaves tons of lacing behind.
Flavor- Very spicy and fruity from the start. Orange peel and sweet hops come in towards the middle of the drink. Medium-High Bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Light alcohol warming and has a good amount of spice once again.
Overall Impression- A nice "limited" brew from Goose Island! I’m not sure if I would order more then 2 of these because of the price... Well worth it though and suggest anyone who has the chance to enjoy this. Very complexed all around.

On tap at Frontera Grill. Light aroma, but great belgian nose. Belgian yeast and lemon are well rounded with coriander. Great on a hot day...I hope they bottle this stuff soon. And drink with Mexican food!

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

Golden color with a small white head. The aroma is pretty fruity, with some pie crust and orange peel. The flavor is similar, and adds a lot of spices. The finish is very dry. Really refreshing and very tasty.

Quite flavorful for how light it is. Nice peppery / bubblegum notes from the Belgian yeast strain pair well with the citrus and spices. Very complex and balanced. Very impressive.
