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.

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.

Hazy unfiltered yellow. Good Head. Citrus and Malt. Easy To Drink. Favorite on a hot summer day. Good.

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 wouldn’t be bad on a summer day, but it isn’t horribly satisfying.

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.

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.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2007
Had this one on tap at Old Chicago with a calzone. Appearance was pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma was of citrus and orange peel. The taste was tangy and grassy with notes of citrus and lemon. Watery mouthfeel. Taste seemed to fade away quickly and with food faded away completely. An OK light wheat for summer, but there are probably better ones out there.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2006
On tap at Gino’s East Chicago. Pours a nice golden hazy color with a medium white head. Aroma of grass and citrus. Taste of wheat and malt. Smooth as silk and finishes with little tease from the hops.

2.8
Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
6-pack from Publix grocery. Pours a hazy yellow body with minimal off-white head. Nose of banana, subtle citrus. Flavors are similar to the aroma with the addition of lemongrass, dough, and a very subtle herbal note. Finishes clean. Medium carbonation and light/medium body. Not great in complexity, but easily drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
