COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours hazy straw pale with a small head that quickly diminishes. Nose is fruity with currant in background. Flavor is a bit cidery with a dry bitter finish. Not so much of a wheat ale but still drinkable.

En skonsam vetel som knns grund i bde smak och ambition. Hr finns goda ansatser, men resultatet r ganska tunt. Anorektisk kropp.

joergen (27723) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2010
Bottle at home. Hazy golden coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hay, caramel and spices. Fruity flavour of spices and caramel. Sweet and spicy finish. Boring.

The aroma is almost medicine like, maybe past its prime cheese. Theres a wee bite, and a grassy taste. Astringent finish.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Hazy yellow, white head. Thin mouthfeel, like a witbeir. Bit of yeast and malt in the aromas with a distinct citrus aroma. Pleasant session beer; heck of a lot better for this than macropils, but not too great for anything else.

BroSpud (2156) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2010
12oz bottle (screwtop). Fairly decent wheat beer. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Not alot of character but quite drinkable. A good light summertime brew. Surprised at all the low ratings this one is getting.

vikingguy (1097) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Pours a cloudy orange-gold. Fresh orange-spice aroma. Flavor is very wheaty with notes of orange and coriander. Nice little hoppy bite on the finish. Creamy texture. Long creamy wheat finish. Definitely one of my favorite wheat beers. Corriander isnt as dominant as others Ive had and this is has a better texture. Highly drinkable and a great summer-time beer.

Bottle via the wife. Could this beer pour any paler yellow> Thin whispy head. Some very small solids that barely move near the bottom. Carbonation seems impeded. Body is light and has the initial tang of wheat but none of the yeastiness, Sweet, gummy finish. Murgh....
