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.

poured a boring almost clear piss yellow color with some lacing. Nose of dough, bread, and citrus. Non complex taste with basic notes of lemon peel and a slight floral/hay finish. Overall it’s as average as can be. There are plenty of waaayy better wheat ales out there to enjoy

Ok, so initially this taste like sour water on the first sitp. After a couple drinks, it taste better, but still not all that good.

Bouteille de 33 cl, couleur jaune pale, mousse moyenne, aucune tenue. A part des arômes de paic citron, je n’ ai rien trouvé d’ autres. Carbonnation faible. Je conçois que la bouteille a peut être subie une avarie mais en l’ état rien d’ intéressant. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 Available on tap from Goose Island (Wrigleyville), Chicago, IL. Hazy golden yellow hued wheat ale with no discernable head. No discernable aroma or carbonation. Light bodied ale that starts with lightly sweet malt with citrus flavor and slight oxidation off-flavor of cooked vegetable (mushroom?). Short bland finish. No discernable hop contribution. A rather mediocre beer. Sampled during lunch at Goose Island. UPDATE: (02.18.06) Sampled at FebFest ’06, Libertyville, IL. Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle. Pours hazy straw-colored with small white head. Smoky, spicy nose. Light-to-medium bodied that starts with light malt sweetness and smoky, honey flavors. Finishes with light malt fade. A decent, drinkable wheat beer, but not one of Goose Island’s better beers. Rating remains the same.

Canned at Tim Can. Pretty average. Mostly malt but lacks crispness. Not a fan.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours a clear lemon yellow with very light white head. Aroma is of overwhelming citrus and yeast. Flavor is Lemon and wheat but very light, to the point of watery. Not that impressive---definitely expected more from goose island.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Very pale straw yellow color with big creamy pure white head. Aroma is slightly citrusy, bit of honey and pear. Flavor is crisp, clean, almost lager-like, touch of honey. Finish is mildly sweet.

Bottle to a pint. Pale yellow gold with thin white head. Aroma is wheat bread, grass, lemon zest. Flavor follows. Decent wheat beer, it'll do in a pinch...

Clear, yellow with a white head. I thought this was a pretty decent brew. It would hit the spot on a hot day.
