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.

all the common characteristics of a wheat beer with a great flavor - I like it with a lemon - lighter than some wheat beers

ben4321 (6133) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from jcos, 11/12/09

Aroma: It has an aroma of citrus, wheat, spice, and honey
Appearance: Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a bubbly white head
Flavor: Taste is similar to the nose, spice, wheat, lemon, and honey
Palate: It has an unexciting mouthfeel with a light amount of body
Overall Impression: Not the most exciting beer. It isnt bad, but it just isnt really memorable or exciting. I really dont have to say much more on this beer, it is what one might expect.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2009
On draft at The Happy Gnome. Pale gold in colour with a bit of haze and medium carbonation. Aromas are of flowers, peach, and a bit of wheat. Quite tart in the mouth, with notes of quince, lemon, and malted wheat. Fruity and a bit simple, but could provide some nice refreshment on a hot day.

12oz bottle from VIllage Beer Merchant. Hazy yellow pour with fading white head. Aroma is nothing special to me....typical citrusy grain wheat beer aroma. Flavor is along the same lines but with a decent hoppy snap to accompany the decent sweet grain finish. If it were even hoppier, perhaps it might set itself apart.....but overall, a decent easy drinking wheat beer, especially on a hot day.
