Like the digits suggest, its a beer thats densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We dont filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thats how you know its 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. Its not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youd expect.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2010
12 fl oz bottle. Yellowish golden with a small haze. Small off-white head. Soft and mellow wheaty nose with a hint of apricots. Medium-bodied and a little oily texture. Fairly neutral flavourwise, but the beer is quite pleasant as it has a little body. Refreshing and easy drinking.

Travlr (23988) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2010
12 oz bottle. Dull orange color, off white head, great lacing. Aroma of black pepper and orange rind. Taste is citrus, malt, light spice, and the barest hint of burnt embers. Interesting.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2010
Hazy yellow beer. Low aroma with notes of citrus, wheat and sulphur. Wheat flavour with some citrus notes and dry, a bit acidic finish.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Aroma: characteristic "wheaty" aroma mixed with a pleasently sour aroma of citrusy origins; Appearance: nothing special to me, just slighly more golden than a traditional American lager; Taste: good initial impression but loses its edge towards the end, very drinkable, and the wheat wins out over the citrus accents, which is a good thing; Palate: better in the beginning, loses fizz quickly; Overall: it is something I could drink a lot of if it were on tap and if I werent paying a premium price for it, a good backyard barbeque beer if that makes any sense

glennmastrange (2824) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap. Light grain and herbs for the malt and hops, with some pear and wood notes in the background. Head is small, frothy white with thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, which eventually clears, golden/yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic. Palate is light, watery and has a soft carbonation. Not bad but nothing outstanding about this Wheat Ale.

Vir4030 (602) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Beautiful pour of orange fog with a nice foamy head that lasts. Smells light and a hint of citrus. Taste is real smooth and light, but not a lot there.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2010
20100606 tap at OHare. Pale golden, medium haze, lasting white froth. Nicer looking than your standard American Wheat. Aroma is mildly cascade and light lemony biscuit. Just fine stuff, nicely refreshing. Lingering c-hop bitterness and perfumes.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle. Aroma has notes of citrus and banana. Pale yellow clear hue with an average white foamy head that diminished and left little lace. Flavor is sweet and mild then fades fast. Palate is very light bodied and watery with decent carbonation. Overall it tasted more like a macro light beer with some citrus than a craft brewed wheat ale. Refreshing though.

GardenGabe (137) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Had this on tap. Clear with a medium head. Smells of grass, citrus and bannana. Taste crisp mildly sweet. Grain and grass come through on chewing. Medium carbonation which a decent mouth feel. A good example of wheat.

By far my favorite beer. Nice head. Hazy/cloudy appearance, golden. Perfect amount of sweet/bitter.
