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 (1212) - 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

Overall, not a bad beer. I dont tend to drink wheat beers much, so I dont have much to compare it against. Biggest strike against it might be that the hops do most of the talking, which is not exactly what youd expect in a wheat ale.

1st rating - I really liked this beer. Not the best aroma, but it went down smooth. Kind of citrus taste. Quite enjoyable.

Onslow (1473) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Pour from a 22oz bottle. Hazy blond brew with one finger of slightly creamy head. Modest aroma of wheat with slight citrus overtones. Mild flavor and body. Inoffensive, not much more to say.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2009
Draught. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head. Nose of wheat, yeast, fruits, little banana. Initial taste of mild wheat, citrus, banana. Watery body, belove average palate duration, too simple one dimensional not challenged wheat ale. Average head retention and light body. Overall not impressed.

mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2009
12 oz pours a hazy yellow with a foamy head. Big fruity aroma. Soft body with yeasty taste, some wheat and some fruits at the end. Decent lawnmower beer.
