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.

More citrusy bud light. Very little aroma and taste, almost like a re-incarnation of bud light wheat.

My favorite beer of all time! Im a girl that drinks a lot of beer and I want one that is more complex than a typical wheat beer but not hoppy, which is why this beer is perfect for me!

dj (603) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2017
Bottle, 355ml. A hazy pale orange colour with little to no head. A fresh citrus hop aroma. Flavour is hoppy with a little malt and citrus, faint wheat and herbal notes. High carbonation. Not much going on here, pleasant enough but not enough wheat coming through and far too fizzy.

Ehh, I mean it has some redeeming qualities to it. The grain profile on the front and the finish are fun and what makes a wheat beer interesting. That being said, there isnt really anything else going on and thats all you can smell and its kind of an ugly looking beer.

Towey1989 (2459) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, herbs, slight banana, a little grain and subtle honey. Taste of lemon, honey, some herbs, slight grain, and a little banana. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sweet, honeyed, herbal finish. A sweet wheat ale with a hint of herbs and lemon. Ok.

Mr_Pink_152 (4598) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Tesco. Golden colour without the cloudiness of a wheat beer, but with a thin white head. Aroma banana and fruity. Taste mainly sweet, with a light sour finish.

hershiser2 (2800) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Kroger bottle. Clear pale gold, white head. Ordinary wheat aroma. Flavor is wheat. This is a wheat beer. Nothing more, nothing less. Any ol wheat beer. Zero depth, zero imagination.

Dominant aroma is banana - not unpleasant but not my thing. Appearance is fine - golden and hazy. Taste is ok - possibly overly sweet but without a depth to it. Nice on the palate but thats not compensating for the overall taste. Average (and certainly not the best in the Goose Island Island range).
