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.

Bottle 12 oz. Pours bright yellow, clear, little sediment. Bright white glistening head, 1.5 inches. Beautiful appearance, but short longevity and little lacing. Light aroma, lemon and citrus, similar taste. Thin for a wheat ale.

monkeychugg55 (1066) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap. Slightly cloudy yellow with a small white head doesnt retain very well. Light nose of wheat, yeast, and very slight hops. Taste is also light and resembles a yeasty pale lager. Light carbonation and decent moutfeel. Easy drinker, but not great.

Heavier beer. Smooth but also has a bitter taste. Its fizzy but not in a bad way. Citrusy and good for casual drinking.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
A cloudy pale yellow beer with a decent white that manages to leave some good lacing. Sweet aroma of wheat, apricot and oranges. So far the beer gushes cool refreshing summer beer. Light citrus flavor and wheat. Mild carbonation hits the tongue and the beer finishes with a light citrusy wheat bite at the end. There is not much to this beer but it is easily drinkable and enjoyable.

kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2009
A really bad example of a wheat ale...I had no clue the style before drinking and then thought it was a pale lager. Piss colored but at least had some lacing. Aroma was yeasty, skunky and lemony...it was ok. Flavor was slightly bitter but like in a bud way...fizzy, thin and just overall bad on the palate but not the worst.

bmk (2) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2009 does not count
Lemon and slightly dusty aroma, with a a thin yellow appearance. Mouth feel is very thin. Has a decent burst of fruity flavor at first, but dissipates very quickly with no lasting finish. Disappointingly one-note in flavor with little complexity.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2009
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.

rader58 (891) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2009
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..
