Sign of the Whale, DC tap ($6): Usually I don’t get wheat beers, but this was the only beer in the place that I have never tried and was amongst the better beers in the dive bar. In any case, it pours a hazy yellow and has a thoroughly citrus taste. It is very light bodied and it seems like you could drink 15 of these without noticing. Anyway, I find it astounding that most people here are saying that this isn’t true to the style or that you could barely tell that this is a wheat ale. I think this is ridiculous. This is about as clearly an American wheat as any that I’ve had. The fruitiness, the haziness, and the light body are all there. crossovert (14146) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 By far the worst wateriest beer I’ve had. Well maybe boddingtons but still, this is water. probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Pint at Maggie’s (Watertown). 20FE11.JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2011
App.: Hazy golden with a thin white head.
Aroma: Clean minerals, citrus, some toasted wheat and grain, a little honey, a bit of earthy coriander.
Palate: Medium body, gentle effervescence.
Flav.: Some banana esters, yeast, toasted wheat, a bit of citrus, grains/cereals, some coriander (I think...).
Hard to guess the style, OK though.
POurs yellow with a light head. Light notes of citurs on the nose with a light ale like quality that shows a bit of whaet character. Nice easy finish. Rasmus40 (22173) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2011
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is wheaty, fruity and yeasty. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. A bit watery and lacks body. There is something artificial about the fruity sweetness. 010311

light gold, very hazy
nose is citrus hops and a little yeast
Med/thin and fizzy
some citrus hops, can’t find any wheat beer flavour. it’s not really a wheat beer other than the unfiltered bit.

extremely inoffensive boring wheat beer. Almost macrobrew. Shame on you goose island. DanielBrown (4567) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2011
Bottle from the Criterion, Leicester. Fairly undetectable wheat on an APA background. Pleasant enough, but not a wheat beer in the sense that I understand it. sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Poured on tap at goose island brewery in wrigleyville. Smell is citrus and sweet. Taste is semi wheat, citrus, lemon and little hops. Tastes like my kolsch I brewed in December. This beer was filtered which does not contribute true to the style of wheat beer. Very clear like a pilsner. Would have again, but this beer is in a class of its own.. jsh12bama (761) - Alabama, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with thin white head. Citrus flavor with lemons and oranges. Decent.
