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.

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.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2008
The color was light, pale golden. The head was white, creamy, and laced some. The aroma was wheat and sweet. The flavor was strong wheat, but rotten somewhat. The palate was very carbonated.

sawbuck (676) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours a pale, cloudy yellow. Sweet aroma. Light white head that settles quickly. First taste is sweet, citurs...more on the lemon side. Finishes with a faint not of hops...cleanly. Usually not a fan of wheat but this one is o.k.

rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Pours from bottle a slightly murky light-yellow. Aroma is somewhat tart grassy hops and straw with a bit of malt. Flavor is lightly malty sweet caramel, tart grass, and something like cereal. Overall, ok cold on a hot day, but not something I would choose to drink often.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow with a dense white head. Aroma is wheat and citrus predominantly. Flavor is both grassy/earthy/wheat-like as well as being light/crisp/pine-y. It falls somewhere between a pale ale and a wheat beer if you ask me. Not bad; could several at a bar if theres not much else on the menu worth drinking.

blackflag321 (667) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2012
An okay wheat ale; it has the wheat ale characteristics that make it refreshing on a hot day, but there are other wheat ales that do the same thing, but taste better.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Aroma is light citrus and hay. Color is cloudy pale yellow with a white diminishing head. Flavor is mild, light citrus qualities with a bitter grassy aftertaste. Light bubbly mouth-feel. Ok overall.

Delirium (662) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2008
Draught. A kind of light American wheat. Not much hefeweizen character. Refreshing, but boring.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus. Tastes of wheat, citrus, fruit, hops, and other sweet notes. Drinkable and an all right beer overall.

Pour a clear light orange hue with a light fizzy head. has a wheaty aroma with a look an feel of a macro, albeit a good macro. I wouldnt kick this one out of bed, but Im not asking for it to stay either. Had it out of a bottle.
