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.

Pretty much a basic wheat beer. Theres really not much to add to the description. Some character would have been nice.

Onesimus (22) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
Golden with little head. Medium carbonation. On the nose wheat, yeast and lime. In the mouth its thin (not creamy) moderate carbonation. Quite refreshing but no big flavours up front following through is a bitter hint of lime and bread. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Banzale (170) - FRANCE - JAN 3, 2017
Acheter chez Vanuxeem Ploegstreet . Bouteille de 35,5cl. Couleur dore assez translucide , lgrement trouble (surement non filtre). belle mousse bien tenu , abondante et crmeuse. Au nez : note houblonn et pointe dacidit . En bouche : petite aigreur au premier abord . Note fruite trs leger et subtil . texture crmeuse je trouve (froment ?) cest assez longue en bouche mais manque de corps . cest plutt simple au final . Moins fort que certaine , mais honntement meilleur que certaine de grand nom.

Arek (1021) - Zielona Gra & Wrocław, POLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle 12 fl. oz., Tesco, Bournemouth, England, UK.
Jasnozłote, mętnawe piwo z gęstą i puszystą pianą oraz przyjemnym, łagodnym, cytrusowym i pszenicznym aromatem. W smaku orzeźwiające, cytrusowe, lekko pszeniczne z wyrazistą, grejpfrutową i chmielową goryczką na finiszu.

Beerowl80 (312) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Can. Pours light amber. Aroma of wheat, cereal and mild gooseberry. Light sweet and bitter. Lacking any spiciness. Youd be better off going for a German hefeweizen.

Live rating of a cold 330ml bottle from a Beerhawk selection. Poured into a half pint chalice. Hazy gold, no head. Now I am prepared to believe that the Goose Island people are sincere in their blurb, and I hold them no grudge, but I found little discernible aroma, and not much in the way of flavour beyond a little ofthe breadiness I associate with some German lagers: Disappointingly bland and underwhelming. I checked my other wheat beer ratings for some perspective, but I dont appear to be prejudiced against the style. Drinkable if youre thirsty, but not worth seeking out. Am I missing something?

17Beer (263) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bread and yeast aromas. Pours a cloudy gold bubbly yellow with a thin white head. Some sweetness with bread and apricots flavor. Microscopic hops sour in the finish. Interesting but not my favorite style.
