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.

Slightly murky light yellow, very small head. Aroma: large citrus and lime aroma, mixed with a wheaty Weisen aroma. Taste: watery, mostly. Starts crisp and light with hints of citrus and Weisen. Develops a Pilsener like bitterness. Light body. Aftertaste is wheaty. A bit uninspired.

Aroma of wheat, taste is wheat, crackers, creamy, would go well with a thanksgiving dinner.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 On tap at cleveland airport. Aroma is unidentifiable spices. Fizzy, fruity with light malt and some off flavor bread and yeast. Odd combinations and not so enjoyable. Over carbonated. Bad choice for last call stuck in cleveland airport.

Semi hazy yellow liquid, small head. Weak aroma of yeast. Light body, tiny little bit carbonation. Taste is sour, bitter, and overall weak.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Gift from Brigadier, thanks! Aroma of subtle banana, lemon, very subtle cherry or other red, berry-like fruit. Pale yellow, with a touch of cloudiness and a thin, white head. Light flavors of lemon and banana and a quick finish with a touch of graininess. Light palate, slightly watery. Quick drinking beer without major flaws.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Spicy aroma with faint notes of hops. Light spicy taste, little bitterness.

Pours a yellow color. About one finger white head. A little cloudy, not as much as I would have expected. Okay retention, okay lacing.

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.

So where exactly in the 312 might one grow a little urban wheat for this ale? Or am I being too literal? I’m enjoying this in the early spring and thinking how nice it would taste on a hot summer day -- if Wisconsin gets any this year. The aroma and taste are nicely subdued and it all works.

Very carbonated, very filling. I had two large drafts with dinner in Wadsworth last nite, couldn’t finish the last one due to feeling very full.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 29, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a tall glass. Appearance is hazy yellow with a white foamy head. A bit of lacing. Smell is wheat, hay, a little fruity. Taste is a little fruity up front, straw, and finishes quickly. Not much to it.
