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 (515) - 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 (674) - 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. 47574xeCD (1266) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle at home. Xmas gift pack.
Amber pour with white head. Malty zest aroma. Malty wheat Grapefruit hints. Bit average really. Wallenrod (19) - - FEB 18, 2017
Aromat: w pierwszej chwili z butelki wyraźne cytrusy, a dokładnie cytryna/limonka, lekki banan. Po chwili jednak wrażenie zdecydowanie osłabło.
Wygląd: Nalały się jakieś paprochy, nie był to osad drożdżowy, podejrzewam, że mogło się wytrącić białko. Piana bardzo nietrwała, raczej gruboziarnista, po chwili opada do zera.
Smak: Jakieś lekkie banany, bardzo delikatne cytrusy.
Podsumowanie: Piwo nic mi nie urwało, drugie podejście do Goose Island i drugie mocno przeciętne.

Growler from the Summerhill LCBO. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange colour with modest white head. Aroma is wheat, sweet fruitiness and a light grassiness. Flavour is big chewy wheat, a little tree fruit and light grassiness. Body on the lighter side. Straightforward but pleasant. rodsquad (334) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours hazy yellowy-gold with a thin white head. Aromas of dusty grain, lemony hop and a sickly pale malt. Tastes add a slight orangeade sherbetiness and a countering gentle hop bitterness. It has a sharp, light body with an oily mouthfeel. It has a nice body and overall it is sharp and refreshing but for me it has a slightly sickly finish that keeps interrupting the enjoyment. OnTheTrail (583) - Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Slightly hazy dark yellow. Aroma vaguely apple, grass, turpentine. Taste is slightly sweet, wheaty, lemony hops. I tend to prefer my wheat beers more European style than this. Rhombic (146) - Elx, SPAIN - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle, 355mL. Pours clear yellow to pale amber, frothy head that diminishes rapidly. Smells of moderate malt, quite lager-ish but with a fruity note, like persimmon fruit for those of you who know about it. It’s subtle but it’s there. Creamier than a lager, showing more weissbier character, nothing too outstanding but can’t complain about the texture: smooth and refreshing (midwinter, I know). Does not develop though, ver static and one dimensional. Better than some lagers but not out of the league of the better lager, if that makes sense. There’s nothing wrong with it, there just is nothing amazing either. They played safe with this brew and it tastes just like that. Moving the balance more towards hops or towards wheat would have made a better beer. ChewyBeer (418) - SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 22, 2017
