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.

An ok effort. Just letting it sit for a few minutes and warm up made it much worse. All of a sudden got a little woddy flavor to it and then dissipated. For Goose Island, Im let down.

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. Aroma of wheat with a hint of vanilla and soap. A very light flavored beer with hints of yeast. Not really that exciting.

On tap at Shortys. This central Chicago themed brew is advertised as "President Obamas favorite beer." Pour is a transparent but slightly hazed golden color. Taste is lager with subtle hop and wheat. Thin on the body. Refreshing and enjoyable but someone needs too tell Mr. President, there are a lot better beers out there..

Nice cloudy golden body with a thin white head, this wheat has a clean yet more fulsome body, bit of lemon zest and banana, than many. Very refreshing on a mild day.

bottle from flssmrbrewalum... bottled 11/25/08 pours a hazy lemonade color with a vibrant white head and some sporadic spotty lacing. the nose is dusty... notes of earthy almost savory yeast, hay, lemon and rust. the flavor profile is pretty much the same with the addition of banana and red apples in the aftertaste. thin to medium bodied with a prickly mouth feel. refreshing pool side beer...6/3/6/3/14/3.2

Pours cloudy, pale yellow. Thin white head with good lacing. Aroma is wheat grain and citrus. Flavor is crisp with barley, wheat and a citrus. The citrus is very notable in the after taste. A very light and refreshing beer. A good cook out beer.

Im kind of surprised the ratings are so low on this. Im not a big fan of wheat ales by any means but this one seemed to have a few things going for it that others in they style have failed for me. For one thing the pour was nice with a large white head that actually lasted for once, nice lacing on the glass. The aroma while light of hay and straw also provided a slight fruity sweetness that was inviting. The taste is light and crisp in the mouth with yeast and wheat combining for a light doughy taste, really it was almost pastry-like due to the subtle fruity sweetness this beer provides. Lastly, the bitch actually had some hops to speak of and left you with a decent finish considering the style. Very well blanced in my opinion between the wheat and yeast you would expect, as well as a touch of fruit and hops. Not bad and very refreshing to boot. This one is underrated if you ask me.

transparent yellow beer that is overly carbd. aroma is practically nil, very neutral with a touch of malt sweetness. flavor is along the same lines and lacking in complexities. refreshing or thirst quenching are not valid defenses for this beer in my eyes.

Lubiere (13064) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
A lightlly hazed blonde with a thick white head. In aroma, a lightly chalky malt, grainy, wheaty with light berry notes. In mouth, a fresh grainy ale with light berries, light and refreshing. On tap at Clybourn, May 17 2009.

650 ml. bottle. Shared with Marilyn. Pours a thin head, with attractive lacing, over a pale yellow (SRM 5) body......nose of light bread, light malt.....taste is dry throughout, light wheaty taste, light yeast, minimal spice.....mouth feel is light. Light , minimal spice, refreshing but not a great wheat ale.
