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.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 For a beer that claims to be so meticulously brewed, including being unfiltered, this is quite pedestrian.

hazy yellow, fine white head, drippy lace, sweet wort aroma, light sweet malt flavor, lots of bready yeast character give the impression of unfermented wort flavor, light bitterness

This is a really poor offering from Goose Island. Pours to a hazy lemony yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is stale wet straw and the mouthfeel is bland. Flavor is more of the wet straw and grass, with no wheat, spice or dough to be found. Not surprisingly, the finish leaves a bad stale taste. Stay away from this one!!

Pours a crisp blonde with a medium white head and fine particulate. Aroma is wheat with mild citrus fruits. Taste is carbonated and up front with mild banana and citrus flavors. Finishes with a nice wheat taste. An easy drinking summer wheat.

Can I have another? Might need a wee bit more hops, but still an outstanding brew. Liked it nearly as well as BellsOberon.

The aroma and flavor of this american wheat beer is not too shabby. More wheat aroma and fllavor than most--overall a great summer ale.

Cloudy orange body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel flavor with a hint of banana. Sweet wheat flavor with a light caramel ending.

Odd label on this 12 oz brown bottle. Pour is hazy like a wheat but not real cloudy. Lighter yellow vanilla color comparable to many american wheats. Slightly tart and somewhat spicy. Less carbonation than I like in a wheat, usually you think of wheats as being more of a smooth champagne tingle. Its probably because its urban and not rural. Look out, I am torrified buy the wheat. OK for a wheat and as expected compared to other american wheats. Cannot hold a candle to Marzonis 22 or Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen. On par with Hopsun and Witsun. Better than JW dundees american wheat version.

Pale with white thin head. Light wheat flavor. A wheat beer for the Miller Light crowd.
