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.

Scopey (15652) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. It pours hazy gold with a decent white head. The nose is wheat, dough, apricot, peach and some grain. The taste is crisp, creamy, wheat, lemon, grain, dough and grass with a dry finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, easy drinkable. Ok.

Ratman197 (15346) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle poured a hazy yellow with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, lemon and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, light yeast and light lemon with a crisp lingering wheat finish.

2.7
imdownthepub (15322) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled, 355ml from Tesco in Banbury. Cloudy straw colour with white head. Well, I didn’t consider it to be densely populated with flavor (sic) and loaded with character. It was on the thin side, there was a light lemonade note, sweet, some graininess. Not much to go on, a little disappointing.
