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.

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

spacecube (1675) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
Bottle, pours golden brown, lightly hazy with a small bubbly white head. Caramel and wheat malt, with a touch of peppery spice and banana. Light medium bodied, chewy texture. Carbonation is soft and the finish is well balanced with malty aftertaste. Not a bad beer, just a bit bland and macroey.

caribou43 (950) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - MAY 15, 2017
I bought this bottle at bootlegger shop in Paris, between two trains, far away from gare de Lyon, good walk to reach this shop. I drank it yesterday with my wife in Lausanne. To be honest, I was not transcended by this one, I had better American beers, even this opinion, it is drinkable, for exampe after a walk or a jogging, easy to drink, for hot days when you throat are calling you to drink something to be refresh o con unos buenos tacos mexicanos. The color is yellow/orange/clear. The carbonation is average, thin and white foam. The taste is watery, really watery, discreet notew of wheat and cereals, good final note of hop, basical hop, drinkable.

ryrpat (364) - Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Average pale wueat beer. Out of a bottle. Doesn't have the most taste and is a slight step up from a Miller light. An original from goose but they have evolved since ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrunkSanta410 (907) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Not a bad beer, but just slightly plain. Grainy, peppery aroma with hints of lemon. Taste is slightly peppery, faint yeast, lemon and grain. Light body, high carbonation.

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 13, 2017
Found on an Easter Island supermarket. Imported by Cerveceria Chile. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white fizzy head. Aroma is pretty dull, a touch fruity with hints of orange and lemon. Some cereal traces with evident use of wheat. Taste is almost as watered down as the aroma, but with little notes of bread, orange and melon. Cereally and bready notes predominate. Watery texture, simple, soft and straight forward beverage. Not interested really. I can find regular lagers more enjoyable to drink than this one.

My favorite beer in the whole world from my favorite brewery. So many layers of flavor. So so good. My only perfect score rated beer.

tmoreau (4221) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2017
On tap at Johns Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL. to accompany the food. Dispensed to a shaker displaying a hazed, orangey/gold color, with a presentable layer of soft white froth that was rather persistent, and foamy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was soft wheat, a bit of grassiness, light citrus as lemon & grapefruit, and subtle, honey-like sweetness. Ditto on the flavor, light bodied, with lively carbonation, and a low, earthy hop bitterness. Didnt expect much, but quite sessionable at 4.2%, nicely food compatible, and would work well as a yard work hydrator.

radassace (257) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2017
355ml can from Waitrose. Nice artwork. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with disappearing white head. Nose is bready/biscuit malt with tiny banana aroma. Get some melon and honey too. Light smooth mouth feel. Taste is malty with hints of melon and lemon. Dry slightly bitter finish. Not bad for a session alternative to lager.

DavyK (68) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2017
Im a massive fan of this. Juicy an vibrant and easy going: slightly creamy and hazy in the mouth, bit of lemon in the aroma and the taste. Easily available. Love it when Im in Chicago, love that I can also get it at the Morrisons in East Kilbride.

BeardedAvenger (660) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2017
Can from Waitrose, West Byfleet. Citrus aroma. A slightly hazy gold. The bright white head dissipates quickly. Light/medium sour with a sweet undertow. Lemon. Cloves. Yeasty. Light bodied. Slick. Kinda chalky residue. Long dry finish. Had it previously and was unimpressed, but found it more refreshing from a can. However its somewhat muted. A bit too light weight. Not urban, that should be heavy, surely. Wont can complain about the price, 20% as its a new line.
