COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ehh, I mean it has some redeeming qualities to it. The grain profile on the front and the finish are fun and what makes a wheat beer interesting. That being said, there isn’t really anything else going on and that’s all you can smell and it’s kind of an ugly looking beer.

Towey1989 (2826) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, herbs, slight banana, a little grain and subtle honey. Taste of lemon, honey, some herbs, slight grain, and a little banana. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sweet, honeyed, herbal finish. A sweet wheat ale with a hint of herbs and lemon. Ok.

hershiser2 (3242) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Kroger bottle. Clear pale gold, white head. Ordinary wheat aroma. Flavor is wheat. This is a wheat beer. Nothing more, nothing less. Any ol’ wheat beer. Zero depth, zero imagination.

tightslice (1313) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 12, 2017
On tap at Paddy’s in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light citrus, hay. Taste is cracked wheat, biscuits, light lemon. Watery and wheaty.

Dominant aroma is banana - not unpleasant but not my thing. Appearance is fine - golden and hazy. Taste is ok - possibly overly sweet but without a depth to it. Nice on the palate but that’s not compensating for the overall taste. Average (and certainly not the best in the Goose Island Island range).

Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy pale golden with a small, quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is kind of vegetabley with some banana. The taste is light sweet and with a grassy hop finish. Mediocre.

mrjez (621) - Osaka, JAPAN - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle from GI Japan web store. Slightly hazy straw gold, low head. Biscuit malt aroma, a little musty, wheat, lemon, spice. Nice basic flavour of malt and citrus hop. Good wheat body over the palate, refreshing carbonation, very clean and crisp. Nothing too much to think about, tasty malt, no off flavours, very crushable.
