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.

hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Missed this one. This has to be the most popular micro brew in chicago. Its nice and refreshing on a summer day and better than any macro brews here. So why not. Pours cloudy hazy yellow some head, an unfiltered look. Smell is of spice and wheat. Taste is of a faint watered down citrus/malts/wheat/spices and lots and lots of water. Finish is lifeless. Overall an average wheat.

Pours hazy pale lemon yellow with white head. Aroma of strong citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is a bland wheat with a smidgen of citrus and yeast. The flavor is dominated by carbonation. Reminds me too much of the typical American macro brew.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 On tap in Chicago (many places). Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is tons of wheat. The taste was a strong wheat presence with some citrus, maybe even pineapple. Pretty good.

heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 Sampled again in the bottle. Poured a light and cloudy yellow. Aroma is sharp with lemons and some floral hops citrus. The taste has light lemons and flowers. Surprisingly hoppy for an American Wheat. Nice grassy taste with a refreshing lemon note in the background. Not nearly as openly sour as some in the style.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Straw yellow soft gentle pour leads to light carbonation through clear direction. Some citrus flavor. Not bad for an American wheat. Entertaining but not much benefit.

Brad (363) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Pours a cloudy light yellow, white a white reasonably sustaining head. Aromas are of lemon and other citrus with a mellowness from the wheat. Flavor is slightly watered down, with the wheat and lemons up front. No lasting finish, mouthfeel is light and watery. A nice session beer during the summer.

SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light orange color with very thin fizzy head. Nose is lemons and wheat. Taste is watery with some light orange flavors to it, a small amount of acidic citrus. Good on a hot day

delmecum (87) - Western Illinois, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2005
A pleasant wheat to drink. Not overbearing with the sour mash taste that the stronger wheats get into. At least a two bottle buy.
