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.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Absolutely delicious. Never had the beer until I moved to Chicago, but it is now one of my favorites. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma/taste is citrus. Finish is easy.

On tap. A - Hazed, pale gold color with an average sized, whispy, creamy, frothy, tight, pearl white head. Decent retention with a thin layer of lace. S - Nice tart lemony aroma with some grassy and banana hints as well. Good amount of malted wheat aroma gives it a base. Pretty well spiced but nothing too strong. Pretty typical for the style. T - Pretty nice, refreshing taste. Wheat and grainy base are nice and provide a lot of the flavor. A good level of lemon rind, grass/lemongrass, spice and just a hint of banana. Pretty zesty/tart for the style, but balanced out by the wheat flavor. M - Light body with very nice carbonation. Quite creamy and goes down very smooth. D - Very easy to drink, smooth, refreshing beer. Has enough zest and spice to keep it interesting and have me coming back for more. Notes: Very nice pale wheat beer that is quite refreshing. Good summertime, thirst quencher. Also has a good amount of spice, zest, and hints of hops to kick up the wheat a bit.

Slightly hazy straw color with a wispy white head. Bready malt aroma and big spicy and citrus hop aroma. Light-bodied, creamy mouthful, lifted off the tongue with medium carbonation. Lightly sweet with malt, a touch of hop flavor, finishing dry and enough bitterness to balance. A superb wheat ale. Crisp and refreshing. Perfect for summer.

Drank this six PAC with some friends way late at night and after way too much rum. Found it clean and refreshing. Definitely getting it again.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste light, summery, a hint of lemon. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle poured into pint glass. Purchased in Denver. Unique citrusy sour mixed with a hefeweizen. Definitely a unique flavor for a wheat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft poured a hazy gold with a slight citrus aroma. The taste is a little bit bitter with a hint of a citrus taste (orange?) and a smooth finish.
