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.

rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2010
Bottled. Clear golden colour, at least I dont see much of haziness. Might be the haze, hh. Metal, black tea, and subtle citrusy hops. Light bodied and crisp, really lacking in maltiness and all. Bit of citrusy hops but thats just l-i-t-t-l-e. Dull beer here, dull style. Body is pretty smooth but what good does that do now?

The flavour is light sweet, light bitter light acidic. Tones of citrus fruits, watery wheat and mild hops. The mouthfeel is watery and clean with a medium carbonation. Pale and dry finish.

Linnet (1793) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2010
Cloudy light golden colour, medium bubbly white head. Discrete wheat notes in the nose not much else, flavour is the same, and I find it very watery. Mouthfeel is average. This beer is just plain boring.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Very pale yellow, zingy and zesty and a bit of a German/Belgian crossover, I thought. Refreshing. slightly herby and creamy, with some raspberry flavour lurking in the background. Clean tasting and impressive.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 Top of the heap as Hefes go. Basically tastes like a hefe without being sweet, which makes it great to me. Good citrus aromas, nice yeast. Easy to drink with a full yet clean finish.
