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.

Yellow and a bit hazy. A light wheat beer for the masses seems to be the goal of this beer. Flavor is light, a bit of grainy wheat, a hint of citrus. Body is light and fizzy. Not much depth here, just a "Wheat Light" kind of beer that macro drinkers can enjoy and feel good about.

BOD 11/23/13. Fairly clear light golden pour with a good head. Well formed lacing and moderate retention. Light nose of lemon with a hint of banana over a touch of clove against a light biscuit sweetness. Light medium body that is smooth. Normal carbonation level with good effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is laid back and a bit weak. Some light tart lemon flavor is predominant with only hints of clove. The finish is clean and somewhat crisp.

Draft. Pours a cloudy yellow. Small white head. Some lacing. Mild citrus aroma. Flavor of yeast and citrus. Overall this is a nice wheat beer. Not on par with Oberon (Bells) or Whitson (Arcadia) yet a good easy drinking summer beer. Hard to go anywhere in Chicago where this isnt on tap. Not every beer can be critically acclaimed, but Goose Island had done a fantastic job marketing this (312 = Chicago area code) and I am sure this beer rules the market.

Pours a hazy, typical AW, nothing special, decent head. Aroma is mostly cascades, unusual for this style, and in my opinion, a big improvement to the style. Flaor is similarly familiar with a twist. Ultimately , this comes across as an APA made with wheat rather than barley, which puts it well ahead of most in this usually flavorless style.

Slightly hazy yellow brew with the smell of lemon. Other than the lemon zest there doesnt seem to be much else going for this one. Pretty boring brew with nothing really making me want to purchase more. Glad I got a sampler bottle rather than a whole six pack.

BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2014
From 12oz bottle. Unfiltered, yellowish tea-like color in glass. Small, white head of large, uneven bubbles. Dissipates quickly. Aroma is faint (if I was being charitable, I would say understated) lemon and pilsner yeast. Taste is equally thin. Some general hopy bitterness. Trace of citrus. Very little wheat in the flavor, but because I was primed to expect it, I can, I guess, pick up on traces of the titular flavor. Not bad out of bottle or on a summer day when your expectations are low.

twindadplus2 (699) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Clear pale yellow color with a good sized foamy head. Aroma of lightly spiced wheat and citrus. Flavor is sweet and spicy yeast and a lemony citrus bitterness. Light bodied but still feels oddly thick on the palate. All in all a good beer.

Kolor jest jasno pomaranczowy, jasno bursztynowy, m?tny. Piana bia?a, zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzykw, nie chcia?a poczeka? a? zrobi? zdjecia. Aromat jest bardzo delikatny, odrobin? morelowy, troch? miodowy, nieco metaliczny, co? jakby woda mineralna z du?? ilo?ci? jonw ?elaza. Smak, tak jak aromat niesamowicie s?aby, cho? mo?na si? doszuka? moreli, miodu, oraz jak wcze?niej metaliczno??. Goryczka i jak alkohol nie wyczuwalne. Wysycenie jest ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. 312 z browaru Goose Island mimo i? niema zdecydowanego aromatu czy smaku jest piwem niesamowicie orze?wiaj?cym, lekkim i pijalnym, mo?e nawet wodnistym, cho? w tym przypadku jest to raczej atut. Idealne na upa?.
