COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

citrusy and fruity with a decent body. it is actually very drinkable and crisp, but it lacks character. a good summer/session brew for those lacking a bit of imagination or motivation.

Bottle from Utobeer. Pale golden, clear, white head. Spicy and malty aroma. Spices take the lead in the mouth. short finish. Best forgotten.

tap: pours cloudy yellow. Arouma of wheat and citrus. Sweet caramel malts. Finishes a bit dry and mildewy. Sharp carbonation, tastes a little stale.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Very strong citrus, hop smell. I can definitely taste the wheat beer qualities, but the citrus flavor is a little too overwhelming for my tastes. Quite a bit of carbonation and a fairly abrupt finish. Probably my least favorite goose island beer I’ve had.

Clear pale yellow color with a good sized foamy head. Aroma of lightly spiced wheat and citrus. Flavor is sweet and spicy yeast and a lemony citrus bitterness. Light bodied but still feels oddly thick on the palate. All in all a good beer.

weitz15 (585) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Aroma of wheat and hops. Flavor consists of earthy citrus, wheat malts, and a slightly hoppy finish. A good beer, but nothing unique here.

On tap at Tilted Kilt. Pours semi-hazy yellow with a big white head. Creamy and wheaty malt nose, not much else going on. Flavor matches. I guess I like the fact that it’s an American wheat instead of a weizen, but still not my thing. I might look at this beer differently if it wasn’t 8 degrees outside. Maybe I’ll give it another shot come summertime.

Bottle. Hazy gold and yellow with a medium head. Aromas are pineapple with caramel and wheat. Lemon with yeast and soft spices. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with gentle lemon bitterness. Has a nice spritzy, yeasty palate. Decent.
