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.

Wife got a bottle of this, I borrowed a few ounces. Straw yellow color with thin white head. Very light aroma, detect wheat, fruit and spice notes. Taste is even lighter then aroma, pale malt sweetness and grass. Light watery body with medium carbonation. In a word, bland. I’m surprised GI has their name on this, o well.

Arôme: nez lite de houblon floral malt
Goût: eau minérale gazeuse, notes de malt et d'agrumes, mais plutôt faible.
Arrière-goût houblonné amer moyen avec un goût d'herbe

Meh. Pours a somewhat hazy Golden with less than an oh of head. A tad of citrus and fruit on top of the sweet malts. Smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hohops (1115) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Appearance- golden, a bit cloudy, no head at all. Aroma- wheaty malt, cereal, hints of mash tun. Taste- fruity hops, citrus fruit, lemons, wheat malt, soft fruits, smooth and slightly fluffy mouthfeel.

Can. Pours golden with just a bit of white foam that is gone fast. Nose has some wet cardboard, wheat sour notes and basically just feels like a usual Japanese macro... Taste shows some more hops, not too sweet and actually finishing dry. Nevertheless, feel pretty bland and watery, not that enjoyable. Was expecting more.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Pours light yellow, with small to no head. Aroma is a little sweet honey and wheat, but not much else little dull. Taste is sweet not much body but medium malt. Pretty poor compared to some other wheat beers

jasonbenali (243) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2017
Very average wheat beer, some citrus, some wheet, no real spice or finish. Refreshing enough but I want more from a wheat beer.
