COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very pale straw yellow color with big creamy pure white head. Aroma is slightly citrusy, bit of honey and pear. Flavor is crisp, clean, almost lager-like, touch of honey. Finish is mildly sweet.

Bottle to a pint. Pale yellow gold with thin white head. Aroma is wheat bread, grass, lemon zest. Flavor follows. Decent wheat beer, it'll do in a pinch...

Clear, yellow with a white head. I thought this was a pretty decent brew. It would hit the spot on a hot day.

It has a very light hazy straw yellow color with some fine yeast sediment in suspension. There is a little visible carbonation as well that helps support it nice foamy white head. The head hangs on well and makes a few cool lace rings near the top of the glass. Smell: The aroma is light and has a simple clean bready/yeast character. Taste/Palate: There is a light clean bready/biscuit like malt base with a very light hop bitterness. The finish is snappy and the light body and texture are refreshing.

bonkiedeaap (770) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
355ml bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is hazy yellow colored and pours a small and unstable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma has clear tones of spices, wheat, hops and some fruity notes. The taste is light bodied and smooth. Tones of honey and wheat are also noticable and a light hint of hops, but further very watery. The finish is watery, soft and light bitter. Pretty boring beer, but the smooth taste made it a little drinkable.

Percy0103 (768) - MEXICO - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. A semi-cloudy beer with a medium size foamy white head that fades away after a couple of minutes. It has a fruity aroma of wheat, lemon and citrics. Taste is very mild. It has a lot of carbonation and very faint astringency. Very light bodied. Aftertaste is somewhat malty. Very drinkable but very close to a macro.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 decent wheat beer by Goose Island. lemon flavor and bitter. Semi-cloudy and kind of generic compared to other goose island beers. not that impressed

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours very light hazy yellow with a small white head. Very pale color. Aroma is that normal American Wheat aroma - wheat, grains, flour, a little bit of rice or something. A tiny bit of tartness or citrus comes out in the aroma but not much. Taste is very watery, smooth, a little grainy with a non-existant finish. Very light beer here. While this is not a category of beers I like very much this one does not stand out at all.

Slightly hazy yellow brew with the smell of lemon. Other than the lemon zest there doesn’t 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.
