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

arminjewell (9585) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2010
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 thatís 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. Thatís all I got. Chris had one of these that he brought with him from Columbus. Iím sure they brew better stuff than this.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2010
355 ml bottle. From MalmŲ, Sweden.
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.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
On tap at their Clybourne brewpub. A fairly clearn, yellow-gold body with a bleached two inch head in the weizen glass. The aroma is heavily subdued and I can barely smell a thing. An incredibly light, near watery mouthfeel with frothy footing that brings her to light-medium body. The front is smooth, with a tide of carbonation rising on the mid-back end of the palate, tied to a lemony citrus bite that lingers past the fall of the bitterness. A nice little wheat beer--unimpressive but respectable in its balance. The story here lies in the bite mid-end.

glennmastrange (2859) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Tap. Light grain and herbs for the malt and hops, with some pear and wood notes in the background. Head is small, frothy white with thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, which eventually clears, golden/yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic. Palate is light, watery and has a soft carbonation. Not bad but nothing outstanding about this Wheat Ale.

2.7
Chudwick (3181) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Draft - pours murky light neon yellow with light white head and some lacing. Nose is wheat and lemon. Aroma is lemon peel and citrus hops. Taste is bitter and mildly sweet. Light body and thin texture. A good summertime drink.

Great summer beer, nothing special. Clean, crisp, lacking the yeast character I really like in wheat beers.

2.7
keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Poured into a shaker glass from a 12 ounce bottle bottled on 4-24-2012.

A: Clear yet hazy pale yellow body with a decent sized white, sort of soapy looking, head. Lots of lazy carbonation bubbles float to the top. This looks decent.

S: Mild citrus in the aroma, sort of a bit like urine actually. Thankfully the aroma is very faint. Not a fan.

T: This is pretty meh. Slight lemon tart with mild spice, this is just boring.

M: This feels pretty dead on the tongue, carbonation hits at the end lazily.

O: Not excited about this at all, bland and boring.
