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.

Draught at Cabooses, Geneva, Illinois. This hazy pale yellow beer was preferable to the macro lagers available at this railway station bar, but it was served far too cold and not as flavourful as better wheat beers.

wheat beer ? with a bit of imagination yes :) as thirst quencher this beer isnt that bad. lacks body and complexity. still some work to do

While technically a wheat, its very clear, and is almost more lager than wheat. Wonderful cascade flavor. Ive had it in both bottle, and draft, and the bottle is much better. The hop profile seems to get lost on tap.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2008
Hazey golden pour with medium head. Aroma is of wheat and maybe some honey. Taste is the same but more dominant wheat with a hint of spice. Smooth brew but nothing special. Not really worth a purchase.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2008
Had on draft. Poured a very pale hazy gold. Large foamy head. Aroma of watered down citrus. Taste was very light wheat and oranges. I was very disappointed in this beer. Extremly watered down for a GI beer. Blah...

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle: Very average and one of the worst Goose Island beers that I have had. Pours yellow with a full head. Aroma of wheat. Not much flavor.

lucke13 (91) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Pours a pale yellow with minimal white head that dissapates rapidly. Smells of hops and citrus. Taste was mainly hop, but ther is a slight tang as well. Decent beer, but Ive had better wheats before.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden with thin head. Aroma and taste is sweet and malty. A little bready yeast. Bland and boring.
