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.

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

sawbuck (762) - 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.

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.

tillmac62 (759) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
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.

Weizen komt in de buurt. Aroma is lychee en wat ander licht zuurzoetigs. Smaak is erg licht, waterig fruit als peren in de aanbieding bij de AH. Ehhhhh.... Laat dit biertje nou net bij de Appie gekocht te zijn. Dat kan beter. Alleen nasmaak is zacht en bevalt wel, smaak plus 1.

I had one of these after finishing a long run. It was refreshing, and yes, a little watery. Still, it was tasty and if you’re going to choose a post-exercise watery beer, this is a good one.

valpoaj (755) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2006
Pours a bright white cloudy head with a characteristic wheat body. Aroma is somewhat odd...not necessarily pleasant, but not really bad either. Nice on the palate with a nice, smooth finish, but the flavor is somewhat lacking, with an empty feel to the brew. A light fruity flavor, particularly lemony, is evident, but overall, this beer was hollow and lacked any distinguishable trait...somewhat of a disappointment

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.
