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.

Bottle at Mcguilicuddy’s. Pour was brilliantly clear golden yellow with lots of carbonation to display. Head and lacing not that impressive, as this style normally has more to offer. Aroma was herbal and fruity. Flavor was earthy, herbal, and fruity, yet no wheat bite and not nearly enough hops in the finish for an Am Wheat. Light body. Came across as a wheat-based blonde ale with little character, only decent drinkability.

Pours a sickly pale, cloudy yellow in a Weizen. Smell is obvious of wheat and big on a light citrusy lemon smell as well and is overall quite nice. Taste is wheaty, somewhat tart and lemony, and I can swear I taste the alcohol in this 4.2% beer though... Very thin, watery, and somehow tastes a bit boozy. I actually like wheats, but this wasn’t worth revisiting.

I’ve had this beer many times on tap and bottled - Most recently from a 12 oz into a shaker. Pours a straw yellow with lots of haze and cloudiness. Nice head if you pour straight in. Looks OK. Aroma is very mild - slight wheat, slight citrus, a little earthy/grassy. Smells decent, but a bit light. Taste is very light (read: watery and slightly dissapointing), light citrus/lemon, slight wheat and thats about it. Overall, it’s very light and unforunately only 4.2%, but it is nice and refreshing on a hot summer day. You can do better, but it’s OK.

Tap: Cloudy pale yellow color with a mild yeast & banana aroma. Flavors of sweet corn and soap. Definitely not my favorite brew.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium frothy head. The aroma is sweet light malt and some citrus. The flavor is yeasty with light citrus, and light sweet malts. A slight touch of bitterness. A touch on the watery side.

Draft. Hazy pale yellow with a white head. Lemony citrus aromas. Wheat spiciness in the flavor with hints of lemons. A bit thinner than I expected.

There is a lot of hype about this beer, since I’m next to the 312 area code, but there isn’t too much to back it up for me. It is slightly too light, slightly too muddled, slightly complex and not much else. I guess it has a pleasant taste and is easy to drink, in the summer that is.

Light wheat beer. Fairly hazy, slightly hoppy. Medium head disappears quickly.
