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.

Drake (13737) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2010
12 ounce bottle from thetomG in Secret Santa Winter 10. Thanks! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of bread, citrus, stone fruits and a bitter finish. The taste is bitter citrus notes, some tropical notes as well, wheat, bread, an almost crackery note. Nutty finish. Thin-medium bodied. Solidly made and would probably be very nice to session during the summer.

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Apparently wheat doesn’t grow too well in urban areas. Hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head and scant lacing. The aroma is faintly wheaty with a touch of malt. Light-bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Tastes like a cross between a Wheat and an Adjunct Lager. Mild wheat, hops and corn are the prevalent flavors. The finish is crisp and lightly hoppy and fruity. Not bad really, it just doesn’t need to be this bland.

crossovert (12927) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 By far the worst wateriest beer I’ve had. Well maybe boddingtons but still, this is water.

Rune (12760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2011
Two 355ml bottles, 4.4% abv, bought at an ICA store in Tromsø and shared with friends. Filmy layer, spotty lacing, unclear golden body. Fresh fruity wheat to the nose. Fresh citrus fruits in flavour along with wheat and lighter notes of spices. Soft bittersweet ending. Refreshing (Sommarøy, 25.06.2011).

thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Very pale yellow with some haziness to it. Small, fizzy, frothy, white head. Aroma has lots of grapefruit, almost getting a fresh fruit note rather than hops. Light piney, some sweet wheat. Higish carbonation, rather watery palate. Flavour is mild, some clear sweetnesss, light grainy, the fruity hops are there, adding some flavour, but not enough bitterness, Still fairly fresh and very drinkable. I’d just rather have a Drink in the Sun.
