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.

So bad. This beer is complete garbage. I dont understand the hype with Goose Island. Other than Matilda and Sofie their beers are awful. This is no exception. It tastes like a Bud Heavy with like a weird wheat taste. Its like that Bud Light Wheat they made. Just trash. I expected a nice refreshing wheat beer but I got a nasty adjunct mess of a beer. The most overrated "craft brewery" hey lets see who owns them now. Awful.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2004
ON TAP - If this was the last Wheat at the bar, Id switch to something else. Artificial tasting and left me with a grimy feeling in my mouth. Really poor, perhaps the worst Wheat Ive ever tasted.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Citrus, spice and wheat aroma wafts over the foamy white head and cloudy straw color of this unfiltered wheat ale. Mouthfeel is very creamy with clove, wheat and citrus flavors finsihing with a slighty hoppy aftertaste. Very refreshing and pairs well with light snacks and/or a picnic food.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - SEP 8, 2005
This was definitely the best beer that I had during my time in Chicago. It has a very yeasty aroma and a cloudy appearance. It is clearly unfiltered and tastes wonderful. Its very creamy with the taste of yeast and hops, with a hint of lemon? This is a very good beer, which I highly recommend.

SHANER4 (492) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2007
12oz bottle - Poured a hazy light straw color with nice white head. Aroma was sweet and smelled like grains. A light mouthfeel with wheat and malt taste. This beer is very easy to drink and is slightly watered down tasting which is nice on a summer day. I was fairly satisfied because it is alot better than Miller or Bud at close to the same price $6.29 a 6pac.
