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.

TBone (17532) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2011
Bottled 330ml (Black Door, BB 03/2012)
Hazy pale yellow color, good creamy white head. Sweet lemon candy aroma. Light body, crisp carbonation. Fruity, citrus-sweety flavor, light acidity. Hints of watermelon. Some kind of artifical notes here too, from spices? Quite simple wheat ale, which works probably best with food.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2011
Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, yellow beer with a small, white head. Citrus and wheat in the weak aroma. The flavor is citrusy and wheaty, lacking on bitterness and punch. Flat, medium body, short and uninteresting finish. A beer that drinks easily but also bores the hell out of me. Rating: 5-3-5-2-10-2.5. 20110330

Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, yellow beer with a small, dense, white head. Mostly citrusy on the nose, with a touch of spices in the back. Wheat too. The flavor is on the citrusy side, on a backdrop of pale malts. Slightly spiced and acidic, rather thin on the palate and with too low levels of carbonation. Citrusy finish, blending oranges and lemon in a smooth, lemonade like way. Well, it’s quite quenching, but it’s certainly nothing impressive going on. Well, I think I’ll have a few more during the spring and summer, it’s certainly better than the lagers we’re used to in Norway, and the price isn’t too high either. 110413

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 22, 2011
A: The beer pours a slightly hazed bright yellow color with a short lived white head. S: Fairly light on the nose but some definite citrus notes of lemon peel and orange. A decent enough floral hop character is present as well. Sweet bread and wheat in terms of the malt content. T: Much more yeasty than I had expected. Wheat bread is there, but the flavor is quite light as well. Lemon zest and a mild to moderate tartness. Not as much hop flavor as I had anticipated, given the nose. M: Light in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: As far as the Pale Wheat style of beer goes, this isn’t bad, but it’s still not something I’d care to drink again.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 20, 2011
330ml bottle (K Market, Helsinki)
5 Flowery perfumy almost soapy aroma.
2 Pale gold, brief fizzy head.
5 Watery and minerally. Touch mashy and raw.
3 Watery palate, fizzy carbonation, some carbonic acidity too. Finish does at least have some graininess, and reasonably bold fruity hops.
10 Pluses and minuses, but pretty dull all in all.

Bottle, 4.2%. Fruity and teaish aroma. Hazy pale yellow colour. Small white head. The flavour is also friuty and teaish, but has a quite watery finish. Flavourful - then watery. Might be refreshing in summer.
