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.

Wheat water. Some Belgian phenolics. Nothing offensive just plain bud wheat water. Thats all I gotta say bout that.

Bottle. Golden yellow color. Aroma of grain and malt. Taste of sweat wheat, orange, fruity banana yeast and a slight funky sourness. Boring and simple beer.

helder geel met schuimige witte kraag, aroma van citrus, graan en tarwe. Smaken zijn graanachtig glad maar dun, medium body, en totaal niet bijzonder... eerder wat slap/waterig... nee

Nice yellow color and a little cloudy appearance. The head is white but is small. The smell is minimal. There is a little sweetness in the distance. The taste is also not very special. It is better than regular beer however. It is more sweet and has a little more flavor. There is a little flavor in the finish, maybe a hint of almonds and raisins?

I guess my palate is wrecked after drinking so many quality IPAs. It tastes like decent beer that has been watered down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

well, the only reason I actually had this was a tour. Im not a fan of wheats in general, and this wasnt an exception. Hazy banana color, little head. Smelled of corn? some beer smells. Nothing extraordinary. I suppose if youre a fan of this style, it would be very easy to drink, but I didnt like the flavortaste...

Draught: Light yellow in color. Clear and sparkling. Small white head. Good lacing. Hay and straw malts. Light, grassy hops. Light body. Slick texture. Fizzy. Bitter finish. Wheaty. I also agree with the comments by Mariano500.

On draught at clybourn. Hazy yellow with a thin white head that diminishes fast. Aroma is honey, lemon, and wheat. I was caught off guard by a hop presence to start the beer. Fizzy in the mouth with a sligh lemon taste. Not a big fan of American Wheats, but this is one of the better ones in this style.

On tap at Clybourn: Soft yellow. Thin, and not remarkable. Nice citrusy tang. A little bit of funk? Not as bad as some say. Weird label. Thanks to Ma Beth.

Pours a mildly cloudy piss yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of husks and c-hops. Flavor is mildly sweet med. sour with a very mild citrus twang. Med. light body. No real bitternesss. I hate American Wheats. Can I get an Amen from the congregation!
