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.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy golden with a basically absent head. Light yeasty aroma. Light-bodied with slightly sweet malts and a wee fruitiness. No bitterness. Very thin and a poor excuse for a beer. 190908

Leicht trübes goldgelbes Bier mit ordentlicher weißer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht fruchtig, malzig, hefig, Citrus. Geschmack dezent hopfig fruchtig, Citrus, hefig, unspektakulär.

Rasmus40 (21693) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2011
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is wheaty, fruity and yeasty. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. A bit watery and lacks body. There is something artificial about the fruity sweetness. 010311

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007
Draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location
Cloudy blond color. Aroma of sugar and lemon zest. Tastes more like a Lager than a wheat, breadish. The final is quite crispy. Refreshing.

Theydon_Bois (20452) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home - Apr ’12. Hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Little aroma to this beer, faint wheat and grain, a little pale malt. Taste follows on from the nose with a little citrus and grassiness in there. Light to medium in body and perhaps a little over carbonated. No need to re-visit!

2.9
saxo (19272) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle from Voldby. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are sweet wheat malt, and hops. Mild and easy drinkable.

3.2
harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2009
On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Very pale gold, greenish tinge, thin white head. Not a huge aroma, touch of soap on the hop, but really refreshing beer. Bit dullish, little bit of lemon edge to it, more an American wheat than a wit. Not very exciting but very refreshing.

2.8
rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle at SBWF 2009. Yellow, small white head. Malty aroma with wheat. Spicy flavor, wheat, malty and quite thin.

2.6
mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at The Burgundian Tavern, pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light wheat malt, not much else. Flavour of light wheat and not a whole lot else. Very weak and watery, though it is refreshing - just very boring. Not much to say here. OK.

3.5
Oakes (18517) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2012
@ ORD. Hazy light tan. Low but fluffy head. Spicy-yeasty aroma with light fruitiness. Full-bodied for a wheat ale with spice, yeast and lots of clean pale malt. Only a light yeast character but for an introductory beer this is pretty good.
