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.

poured from single 12oz bottle - Looks unpleasing as any domestic light beer. Some pleasant aromas come off this thing. Wheat is noticeable on the nose and tongue. Pleasant citrus and light creaminess. I didnt think I would be defending this one from a less-than-great 2.8 avg., but its honestly very refreshing.

Hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Faint citrus aroma. Nice smooth palate, I like the mouthfeel. Blend of wheat and other cereal grain malt flavors on the palate. Refreshing.

Had this at Bubba Gumps at the Navy Pier, poured into a pint glass. 2.5 A: Nearly clear golden color. This beer should be cloudy and I looked at other reviews to verify that it is not filtered. (I had a FILTERED APWA before and it sucked, so now Im always weary when an APWA is clear.) Also, there was no head to speak of since the beer was poured right up to the top of the weizen glass. Pretty much an awful, uneducated pour. I wish I didnt have to do this, but I have to review it like I see it. Hopefully Ill be able to try it again before leaving Chicago so I can give it respectable marks. Sorry Goose Island. 3.5 S: Aroma was pretty bland, but not unpleasant. Most APWAs arent exciting (in the nose) unless it gets a good hopping. Anyway, mainly neutral wheat aroma. 3.5 T: A respectable brew even with the yeast MIA. Solid wheat flavor with a very mild spiciness to it. Also a very mild citrus hop flavor. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good carbonation. No problems. 4.0 D: Very smooth the whole way through. I find most APWAs extremely drinkable and this is no different. Tasty enough to make another a good idea. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-27-2009 04:54:06

Just like the commercial description says. Very light and refreshing. Light fruity aroma, cloudy golden,pour fluffy head. Malty toward bready, as expected. Perhaps the most agreeable wheat beer I have had to date.

Bottle. Golden with a small head and slightly hazy. Gentle trace of wheat with some bitterness added. Pleasant if uninspiring.

Bottle and draft. Not a bad beer, especially for a lazy summer afternoon or evening. Its wheat character is light and a bit watery, and almost juicy. Its pleasant, but very tamed. Easy going summer session brew though.

Very plain and normal wheat beer, only tolerable with a slice of lemon or an orange. Blah.
