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.

Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Very watery with some lemon flavor. Sour finish.

Looks nice, tastes bad. Way, way to carbonated. Made my eyes water to take a drink. A metallic, watery taste to go along with the fizziness. This one was very disappointing.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Cloudy, hazy yellow color, with a huge white frothy and sticky head that stays around for awhile. This has citrus and wheat aromas, light wheaty, and some lemon flavor, medium in body, nice soft and creamy mouthfeel, has a nice clean and refreshing finish, a bit on the bland side.

Aroma: at first it was citrusy and wheaty, but later became rancid (not skunky, but some other sour smell). Appearance: cloudy straw, with a large head that lasts a couple minutes. The flavor is unexceptional, and is very bland. Not much hop, malt, wheat, or yeast flavor. None of the fruity tastes that a good wheat beer gives you. The palate was likewise thin and watery. This is a sub-standard wheat beer, and I would recomment Boulevard’s instead if you are looking for a good wheat beer made here in the midwest.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Straw yellow soft gentle pour leads to light carbonation through clear direction. Some citrus flavor. Not bad for an American wheat. Entertaining but not much benefit.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 25, 2005
On tap at Clybourn: Soft yellow. Thin, and not remarkable. Nice citrusy tang. A little bit of funk? Not as bad as some say. Weird label. Thanks to Ma Beth.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2005
12 oz bottle: Moderately hazy golden yellow w/ very little thin, white head. Lightly floral w/ grainy and wheat malt aromas. Some over cooked canned corn(DMS) and lightly plasticky aromas as well. There’s also a Catawba grape fruitiness...odd! Well balanced flavor, wheat malt is predominant. Actually is sort of tastes like Natural Light with hops! Light corn flavor, finish is sort of bland w/ a short lived wheat malt flavored aftertaste. Medium carbonation, smooth m/f, light body. I’m not too hip on some of the aromas like the plasticky or corn, and the flavor is rather bland, even for a wheat.

Braudog (6979) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2005
Dull, hazy yellow hue with respectable head. Citrus bloom aroma. Mellow flavors ... mild yeast, white bread, citrus. Sweet, lemony.

JK (6406) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2005
Good for an American wheat. Light wheat aroma and light wheat taste. There is pleasant citrus, and it is a little sweet. I would prefer a hefe, but this lighter beer with the citrus is an ok substitute.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2005
Just a bad beer. Weak nose and palate and flavor. Weak, bland, dull on all fronts. Very forgettable.
