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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2010
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.

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.

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.

dj (639) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2017
Bottle, 355ml. A hazy pale orange colour with little to no head. A fresh citrus hop aroma. Flavour is hoppy with a little malt and citrus, faint wheat and herbal notes. High carbonation. Not much going on here, pleasant enough but not enough wheat coming through and far too fizzy.

Goose Island has better offerings. A cloudy pale ale with some spice notes and fruit notes. Fairly smooth.

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

davidezdonz (632) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - NOV 8, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best before date of 26th July 2017, poured into a Spiegelau American wheat beer glass. It poured a hazy golden straw yellow colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quite quickly and left pretty much no lacing. Aromas of sweet malt, grainy, cereal and a touch of lemon. Tastes bready, light sweet apple, corn, grain and lemon. Crisp, light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall, I understand when people say that it’s a refreshing summer beer, but even so, there’s nothing interesting in its aroma or taste. Unfortunately, this one is not for me.

2.3
RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Sour wheat, lemon, light malt. Boring. Appearance: Light orange in color and hazy. White head was full and foamy with decent retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lightly sour wheat, some light malt and yeast, lemon. Spritzy finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied and a little watery. Medium carbonation. Overall: Dull and boring. Nothing that would make me want to order another.

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.

ChiGuy68 (626) - 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.
