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.

BiddleBrau (1192) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Golden, clear with nice white head. Faint orange citrus aroma. Light and flat on the palate, slightly creamy, light grain flavor. For a lighter beer this has a full feel on the tongue. On tap at Dive 96

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle: Hazy light golden with a dense white film of head. Fresh wheaty aroma with lots of grassy notes- crackery dry wheat and grassy hops. Thin and a bit fizzy in texture- pale bread crust flavor in the background with a light watery wheat character. Not much depth or bitterness with a straw note. Feels macro-ish, but with no major flaws or off flavors.

mnovacanes (61) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2009
Appearance: light golden yellow; mild haze; starts with big fluffy white head, but dissipates quicker than it should Aroma: light wheat character; slight malt presence; very marginal hop presence by way of citrus Flavor: moderate, refreshing wheat; very light malt sweetness faint in the background; slightly crisp on an above-average finish Mouthfeel: medium-light body; medium-high carbonation Overall: not an attention grabber, but within the wheat category, this is definitely better than a "2.77" beer
