Little let down by goose island. This as a pale yellow Hefe with some boring citrus and spice hotes. Needed a lemon wedge to make this most interesting. Guess it a decent middle of the road beer. camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Some citrus nose. Super mild palate with more citrus and bread. Easy drinking yet boring McGarnigle (654) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Bottle. Straw color, very nice lacing. Fairly straightforward American wheat with some tanginess to it, low hops ( I didn’t notice the Cascades), light body. Refreshing. Recommended if you like the style. TheGuy (653) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2008
by far not my favorite from the goose, hazy yellow,bitter fruits taste i’d expect more here JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Pours hazy golden with light white head. Faint citrus aroma, but not much else. Flavor is smooth but lacking.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Weizen glass. The label has a "Bottled On" date but no ABV%
Appearance: 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.
Notes: There not much to say. It hits its mark as a basic Pale Wheat Ale.

Pours a yellow color. About one finger white head. A little cloudy, not as much as I would have expected. Okay retention, okay lacing.jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Aroma is slightly lemony. Its bready. Bran flakes? Not a lot going on. Smells like water. Everything about the aroma is faint.
Taste is lemony, bready, watery. It has a bit of grit to it. There’s not a lot to it. Slightly bitter, I think more bitter than 18 IBUs.
Mouthfeel is light body. It’s so light, and would make a great summer beer. It’s quite dry. That bitterness lingers. Bit.
Overall, it’s not that great. There are tons of better wheat beers out there. I would drink it again. But I’m not going to rush out and buy it again. I would recommend this as a summertime, hot day beer, but necessarily for my own cooler. But hey, I do recommend you give this a try, because then you’ll have a better appreciation for better wheat beers.
Bottle. Pours cloudy soft gold with foamy white head. Smells citrusy and semi floral with hints of some spice. Tastes spicy like cloves and some citrus. Bitter aftertaste that doesnt match the beer. Overall, its pretty good. a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Cloudy, amber, thick white head; malty aroma like any old pale lager; gentle wheaty, fruity taste; smooth, a little spice, but essentially boring; disappointing for someone whose beer interest was partly rekindled by a particularly fine bottle of their IPA. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Goose Island has better offerings. A cloudy pale ale with some spice notes and fruit notes. Fairly smooth.
