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.

Pinball (12145) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 4, 2011
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard very clear yellow, smooth large white head with a yellow tone. fresh flowery hoppy aroma, slightly dusty, notes of peaches quite delicate and pretty pleasing flowery aroma. flavor is flowery, very slightly hoppy bitter, slightrly fruity and wheaty. Very mild and probably also a bit boring wheat beer - i prefer the german and belgian versions of wheat beer to this. However it is quite refreshing and very easy to drink, almost like a lemon soda water, or a radler. second pour was not entirely clear, but still it’s one of the most clear berws i ever saw , that claims to be unfiltered.

mR_fr0g (12067) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle from Tesco. Heather honey blossom aromas with a faint zesty lemon. Cloudy translucent yellow with a good white head and a little lacing. Looks very much like a witbier. After a few minutes I get more nutty malt and in the aroma. Flavour is malt forward with a nice noble hop character. The maltt is a little flat and stale. Zesty finish. Palete is a little light with moderately high carbonation, which leaves a slightly chalky finish. Very refreshing.

"I have a bit of a soft spot for hoppy wheats. This one is light, but does the trick. Light wheat, yeasty spice and citrus hops combined to make a light refreshing brew. 38 in Chicago, but I’m in the airport pretending its warmer."

j12601 (11621) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a clear light yellow with a nice soft white head. Aroma is wheat, with a touch of lemon. Thin bodied with a lot of active carbonation. Mostly empty flavor wise. Finishes lightly with a touch of wheat, a hint of banana, and a little bit of lemon. Pretty clean, but lacking much substance.
