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.

Bottle. Light yellow hazy color, small white head. Thin aroma of malt and yeast. Sweet taste with some wheat and yeast, a bit refreshing, but not as much taste as expected from a wheat. The positive is that the beer is now availible in many grocery stores in Oslo, who mostly just have boring canned pale lagers. Compared to them I find this a good alternative when picking up a couple of beers in the hot weather.

Pours golden wheat color (go figure) with a small white head. Heavy hay/grass aroma (go figure). Medium sour taste with the very faintest bitter on the back end. Very light beer. Almost nothing to it really. Not a great wheat beer. It fits the bill for being light and refreshing, but it’s too light and the refreshing nature is more from just having a cold, slightly carbonated beverage.

Quick-review: Unclear, light yellow with a shade of green. Plain smell, alitlle malt, but not much. Taste of malt, alittle fruity. Boring.

12oz bottle in Chicago. Saw this all over the place, lots of adverts. ’not like any other goose island’.. i’d say so, quite boring and pretty flavorless. I guess it is a good starting point for new beer fans. Slightly sweet grain, summer fruits. Probably great when it’s hot out but not anything to seek out.

Bottle. Yellow hazy, thick foamy white head. Smell is not as expected. Some malty smells and maybe some hints of yeasts. Taste is also malty and sweet, but quite light at the same time. Miss some more refreshing tastes and aromaes here. Where’s the citrus and banana? Not bitter finish eighter. Very boring beer

Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, yellow beer with a small, white head. Citrus and wheat in the weak aroma. The flavor is citrusy and wheaty, lacking on bitterness and punch. Flat, medium body, short and uninteresting finish. A beer that drinks easily but also bores the hell out of me. Rating: 5-3-5-2-10-2.5. 20110330

Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, yellow beer with a small, dense, white head. Mostly citrusy on the nose, with a touch of spices in the back. Wheat too. The flavor is on the citrusy side, on a backdrop of pale malts. Slightly spiced and acidic, rather thin on the palate and with too low levels of carbonation. Citrusy finish, blending oranges and lemon in a smooth, lemonade like way. Well, it’s quite quenching, but it’s certainly nothing impressive going on. Well, I think I’ll have a few more during the spring and summer, it’s certainly better than the lagers we’re used to in Norway, and the price isn’t too high either. 110413

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is cereal, malt, wheat and citrus. The flavour is quite citrussy with notes of hops and wheat.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 From bottle. Appears cloudy, as advertised. Hops have a floral, citrusy taste that makes this drink refreshing, but it finishes very short. Much less of a bite than I prefer, very short flavor, but for some that may be a good thing. Kind of sour taste.
