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.

weitz15 (577) - 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.

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.

Obfuscate (561) - Minneapolis, - FEB 24, 2015
Not offensive wheat beer. No bad after tastes. Slight lemon on the nose. Not my style.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2009
Draught. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head. Nose of wheat, yeast, fruits, little banana. Initial taste of mild wheat, citrus, banana. Watery body, belove average palate duration, too simple one dimensional not challenged wheat ale. Average head retention and light body. Overall not impressed.

So where exactly in the 312 might one grow a little urban wheat for this ale? Or am I being too literal? Im 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.

Wixie (557) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2016
Semi hazy yellow liquid, small head. Weak aroma of yeast. Light body, tiny little bit carbonation. Taste is sour, bitter, and overall weak.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Tap @ Star Bar. Clear (?), light gold pour with a fine white head leaving coarse lace. Fruity, wet straw nose with a hint of cotton candy. Medium body with a faint lemon zest, hazelnuts and typical wheat malts. There is a sweetness which reminds me vaguely of arrested-fermentation NA beers. Perhaps this accounts for the heavier-than-expected body? Not a fan, but paired OK with my excellect Star Burger.
