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.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden with thin head. Aroma and taste is sweet and malty. A little bready yeast. Bland and boring.

Bleekgeel, helder bier met kleine witte kraag. Aroma van hop, vooral in de neus. Beetje citrus, wat tarwe. Licht tot medium bitter met licht zoetje. Waterig, mist body.

Hamirubi (577) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
35.5cl bottle at home (1 IV 2016), shared with a friend. An unfiltered urban wheat from Goose Island, hazy amber in a glass with frothy foam head. The grains flavours are vast and omnipresent, yet the hoppiness is as strong. Just a great drinker. Think of an american pale ale (APA) with wheat and hops-powered. The bitterness is very short, and the body is light. Other taste sensations are grain and some turf. Even though it is not my favorite style, I love this smooth drinking hoppied wheat ale.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Pours hazy light straw color with a small white head. Faint nose, light fruit and grassy hops. Similar flavor, light and crisp, somewhat hoppy with some lemon and grass. This is an easy to drink beer, would be a little better if the flavors were more prominent.

ChiGuy68 (574) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden yellow with good carbonation and a white, bubbly, quickly dissipating head. Moderate aroma and taste of wheat and malt.

weitz15 (565) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Aroma of wheat and hops. Flavor consists of earthy citrus, wheat malts, and a slightly hoppy finish. A good beer, but nothing unique here.

Hazy unfiltered yellow. Good Head. Citrus and Malt. Easy To Drink. Favorite on a hot summer day. Good.

Brandon1989 (563) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pours a straw yellow with a hazy cloud and a thick white head. the aroma is rather weak but i pick up some breadiness and wet grass. the taste is not bitter at all and watered down. other than that there is nothing terrible about the beer, you pick breadiness in the taste. would make a great session beer.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours a hazy straw color. Moderate white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is wheat and tart citrus. Similar flavor. Minimal aftertaste. Very refreshing lawnmower beer.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Pours orange-yellow. Thin wheat flavor with very little body. Refreshing in a sense that it wouldnt be bad on a summer day, but it isnt horribly satisfying.
