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.

Rasmus40 (19338) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2011
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is wheaty, fruity and yeasty. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. A bit watery and lacks body. There is something artificial about the fruity sweetness. 010311

DanielBrown (4474) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2011
Bottle from the Criterion, Leicester. Fairly undetectable wheat on an APA background. Pleasant enough, but not a wheat beer in the sense that I understand it.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Poured on tap at goose island brewery in wrigleyville. Smell is citrus and sweet. Taste is semi wheat, citrus, lemon and little hops. Tastes like my kolsch I brewed in December. This beer was filtered which does not contribute true to the style of wheat beer. Very clear like a pilsner. Would have again, but this beer is in a class of its own..

Thanks to Justin for the 12 sampler pack. Pours a light yellow, hazy with a thick white head. Wheat, touch of citrus and cardboard in the aroma. Smooth wheat in the taste, touch of citrus in the taste. Decent.

Always a favorite when I am in Chicago, just enjoyed a few in Missouri as I waited out the snow storm of 2011. I wish i could get it in Miami
