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.

Bottle and draft. Not a bad beer, especially for a lazy summer afternoon or evening. Its wheat character is light and a bit watery, and almost juicy. Its pleasant, but very tamed. Easy going summer session brew though.

Very plain and normal wheat beer, only tolerable with a slice of lemon or an orange. Blah.

Drake (13738) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2010
12 ounce bottle from thetomG in Secret Santa Winter 10. Thanks! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of bread, citrus, stone fruits and a bitter finish. The taste is bitter citrus notes, some tropical notes as well, wheat, bread, an almost crackery note. Nutty finish. Thin-medium bodied. Solidly made and would probably be very nice to session during the summer.

On tap. A - Hazed, pale gold color with an average sized, whispy, creamy, frothy, tight, pearl white head. Decent retention with a thin layer of lace. S - Nice tart lemony aroma with some grassy and banana hints as well. Good amount of malted wheat aroma gives it a base. Pretty well spiced but nothing too strong. Pretty typical for the style. T - Pretty nice, refreshing taste. Wheat and grainy base are nice and provide a lot of the flavor. A good level of lemon rind, grass/lemongrass, spice and just a hint of banana. Pretty zesty/tart for the style, but balanced out by the wheat flavor. M - Light body with very nice carbonation. Quite creamy and goes down very smooth. D - Very easy to drink, smooth, refreshing beer. Has enough zest and spice to keep it interesting and have me coming back for more. Notes: Very nice pale wheat beer that is quite refreshing. Good summertime, thirst quencher. Also has a good amount of spice, zest, and hints of hops to kick up the wheat a bit.

12 oz bottle. Pours lightly hazed golden with a white head. Aroma is wheaty with a bit of cloves. Flavor is light wheat, lemony, and some citrus hops. It’s alright, but unexciting.

Bottle from Voldby. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are sweet wheat malt, and hops. Mild and easy drinkable.

G: Poured into a weizen glass. A: Pours a pale yellow with a hint a lemony brightness. Slightly cloudy with a good amount of carbonation bubbles. Two-finger white head. S: Sweet with some citrus spice. T: Sweet with pale malt and a definite citrus glaze. An ever-so-slight amount of bitterness. M: A little bit heavy on the carbonation. Also, a tiny bit too much citrus on the swallow. D: Clean, light, refreshing. Good summer beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-24-2009
