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.

From bottle, not impressed with this at all. Basically a half assed heartless beer.

Smells horrible yet tastes amazing; very subtle Weiss style taste complimenting a well balanced IPA

16floz can,COD: 07.07.2017, 18 IBU, $1.75 single price from the C-store, not a special release, pint glass. Neon yellow with little head is how it appears, and it smells like an old pack of baseball cards with the chewing gum. Tastes alright; biscuity and light in body. This isn't great, but it isn't bad either. Its just okay.

Bottle. This isnt too dissimilar from Bud Light. Honestly, it tastes like it’s designed to be as inoffensive as possible. This is the Where’s Waldo of beers -- it just fades into the crowd.

Bottle, in Leeds. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

Can at Bathsheba, Barbados, 17th August 17. Pours mostly clear. Aroma is grass, minimal. Taste is lagerish, refreshing, citrus. OK.

Bijl (752) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2017
Goudgeel, iets troebel, witte schuimkraag en  veel koolzuur. Aroma: Iets gras, tarwemout, Citrus. Niet echt gist aroma als banaan en kruidnagel. Smaak: Tarwemout met een licht zuurtje, wat Citrus en wat grassige hop tonen. Een licht zoetje en een iets grassige maar milde bitter. Misschien op het laatst een heel lichte bubblegum smaak. Lichte body , iets waterig en afdronk is fris en licht fruitig. Niet echt bijzonder.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. Minimum retention and no lacing. Aroma is sweet, with some fruit. Notes of caramel and wheat, in taste, with some flowery hops. In overall, a sweet and mild taste. Light body and carbonation. A little plain but not bad. Good drinkability.

Not normally a fan of wheat beers after some bad experiences but thought I’d try a ’mainstream’ versions. Probably a good gentle introduction as I didn’t mind this. Nice fruity smell with plenty of depth, maybe some peardrops. Never liked the cloudy appearance of wheat beers so no comment there. Taste is crisp and lagerish with some peardrops again maybe, not bad. Palate not brilliant - too fluffy. Overall not bad though and may tempt me to try some more high quality wheat beers.

Kleg (301) - The Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2017
Semi-clear gold pour with an off-white head and fair retention. No lacing. Flat mouthfeel. Light body. Generic wheat ale with slight citrus background. No cloves or Belgian yeast. Okay.
