COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, its a beer thats densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We dont filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thats how you know its 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. Its not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youd expect.

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Cloudy golden color with a small but sustained white head. Wheat and some citrus notes in the aroma. Creamy wheat mouthfeel and flavor. Not great but does the job on a warm day.

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured a golden that was barely hazy with a thin white head, very pale. A mild citric fruit aroma with some sweetness. A pretty tart flavor but lacking the richness of a usual wheat. Had a clean, crisp finish. A bit bland.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy-clear yellow with lively carbonation. Hoppy and grassy on the nose. Tastes of flat grass with faint lemon and green vegetables thrown in a blender and pureed. Watery mouthfeel, but not too watery. Average at best.

It really isnt as bad as some make it out to be. Its just a little less than what one would expect from Goose Island. Tasted orange and lemon fruitiness with not much on typical beer flavors (malt or yeast). But its still one I will be drinking again.

Pours yellow with white head, aroma is fruity and ester filled. Taste is fruity up front and thins into some malt with a kind of lackluster finish thats slightly sweet.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2010
Little hazy yellow. Thin in both colour and palate. Lots of citrus and some sweet wheat malt. I had high hopes on this. They were not fulfilled.

Just another wheat. Thats all I got. Chris had one of these that he brought with him from Columbus. Im sure they brew better stuff than this.

Hazy pale golden colour with small white head. Fruity hoppy wheaty aroma with some sweetness, cereal and hints of rubber. Flavour is fruity hoppy with malty sweetness. Easy but decent Wheat Ale. Smooth.
