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.

Bottle, 355ml - Hazy pale yellow beer with almost no head. Aroma is fruity with notes of tropical fruits, passion fruits and pineapple. Flavor is fruity with notes of tropical fruits. Light bodied but very refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2011 Re-rate as the previous one was kinda bogus. Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL for my 30th birthday party, enjoyed during a summer heat wave. Appearance is almost wit-like, very very light straw yellow, cloudy, with slightly frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, a very small hint of sweetness, also light malts. Flavor is kinda weird, goes down very crisp and great on a hot summer day, but it feels like it’s missing something. Very straw like in flavor and body, I do enjoy but mainly in situations where no other brew is available.

Bottle at SBWF 2009. Yellow, small white head. Malty aroma with wheat. Spicy flavor, wheat, malty and quite thin.

guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Cloudy, pale gold appearance with an average size head and little lacing. Subdued, wheaty, lemongrass aroma. Thin on the palate with a weak, wheatish, slightly fruity/citric taste. Light to medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish. Not a drainpour, but little to recommend.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy light straw yellow color with a thin, fizzy head. Light lemon zest and grassy aroma. Flavor is a little lacking, but I can pick up some light traces of wheat and lemon in the finish. Very watery texture with lively carbonation. Refreshing but not the most flavorful offering.

Far superior to all those "rural wheat ales"
Pours a fluffy medium head with some lace and a lightly hazy yellow color. The aroma is yeasty with some citrus rind. The flavor is lemony yeasty and lightly spicy.

travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. The look is clear, golden in color, with a white colored head. The smell is wehat, light, chex mix, and a little citrus. The taste is is wheat, citrus, light, and simple.

milewide (2320) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Pretty brew, but bland! Light cloudy straw color. Good body. Some tangy flavor, but little hop bitterness.

2.3
BigBeer45 (1572) - Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Bomber bottle, pours a clear yellow gold with a white head, aromas of faint malt and bread, little hops on the nose, faint flavors of malt and bread, light hop bitterness at the finish, mouth feel is pretty light on the palate, a pretty simple so-so beer from Goose Island.
