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.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 Wow I cannot believe I haven’t rated this yet, seeing as its probably the beer I drink more than any others since its always cheap on tap. Very great wheat, which gives way to floral and sweet fruit with an excellent finish.

Pours from bottle a slightly murky light-yellow. Aroma is somewhat tart grassy hops and straw with a bit of malt. Flavor is lightly malty sweet caramel, tart grass, and something like cereal. Overall, ok cold on a hot day, but not something I would choose to drink often.

Bottle. Pours hazy straw coloured with a small white head. Citrus and herbs in the aroma. Taste is fresh dry with some spicy and sweet elements, citrus and wheat. Medium bodied. Ends dry, quite good.

DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Pours a hazy pineapple color without much head. Aroma has hints of pineapple denuded of sweetness. Not a lot of flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. Slightly better than shock top, not as good as blue moon.

Poured from bottle to a snifter glass. Typical wheat beer, citrus aroma with slight hints of banana. Not overly sweet and easy to drink, but nothing too exciting.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy light yellow colour. The nose is largely of wheat with some berries also. Thin although a little creamy with lots of wheat flavour and caramel, some co2 prickle. Quite drinkable but not amazing

Kavu (5256) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2011
Pours slightly hazy yellow with a low head. Aroma is wheat, malts and some citrus. Flavor is pretty much the same. Good for a hot summer day, but otherwise a bit disappointing.

Many thanks to LibrarianGirl’s buddy, Laurie, for bringing this brew back from a road trip to Chicago. Bottled on: 05/16/11. Appearance: Pours a hazed, pale straw-colored body with an airy, white head that collapses at a moderate pace. Smell: Light malty notes, a light kiss of sweet lemon, and a faint, faint hint of underlying graininess. Taste: Begins with a gentle maltiness of delicately malted barley and wheat. Lightly sweet with a hint of honey water. A noted fruity, faintly tart citrusy hop presence. Low bitterness. Small shred of yeastiness. Drying on the lively, wheat-flavored finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly soft mouthfeel. Overall: It’s an APWA alright, though thankfully not as cheerless and lifeless as some, and, after going out rowing for the afternoon, it really provides for some substantial refreshment.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2011
12oz bottle from State Line. I probably had a bunch of these when I lived in the midwest but I remember nothing of it. Drinking this beer, that’s no surprise since it’s - uncharacteristic for this brewery - quite bland and BMC-ish. Hazy pale gold pour, with a crisp carbonation and a decently lingering head. Nose is initially fragrant, with earthy yeast and a bit of fruit, but also with something soapy in there. Body gets watery too quickly. Taste is about average, nothing really to merit some of the savaging this beer has received but anonymous all the way.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle. Golden yellow colour with a small white head. Wheaty aroma with some malt and citrus. Flavour is wheat, malt, citrus and grain. Refreshing light-bodied brew.
