4.04/5  rDev +19.2%

I'm a bit surprised at some of the earlier reviews for this beer. I don't know if it has been revised at some point but a lot of the descriptions don't seem to match the batch I'm drinking.

The appearance for starters, is a deep copper color. On the pour there's a full but fleeting head for this style. The smell is pleasant with strong notes of hops and citrus fruit.

The taste is excellent. Light as you would expect from a wheat beer, with greater depth from the malt, hops, and citrus. It comes just to the line of crossing over into being too "hoppy". I'm definitely a fan of this brewery now, having tried a few of their other offerings and this beer in particular. I know a beer is good when I'm surprised out how quickly I'm emptying a glass.

3.12/5  rDev -8%

Serving style : 12 oz glass bottle poured for appearance

Appearance (4) : thick, stark white 2 finger head with a semi-transparent golden glow. Almost a gold dust color. Head recedes at a moderate rate leaving some interesting lace on the glass. It just sticks and stays. I like that.

Smell (3) : Well, like a dumbass I just spilled my beer all over my computer desk. So I guess I'll just continue my review from here.

I get some orange peel, slight lemon zest with some wheatiness. A very clean smelling beer with a lot of overtones. I hope this is accurate. Half the beer is gone, wiped up into a towel.

Taste (3.25) : Not bad for a wheat but a tad bitter in the middle of the body, but ending well with a rich zesty wheatiness on the finish. The bitter is somewhat lemony, and a lot like an amber ale, but I suppose that could just be the character of the ale itself coming out. Fairly smooth. Nice aftertaste.

Mouthfeel (3) : Heavily carbonated but the wheat helps make it slick. I don't have much left to go by. It's almost gone. As I said, I hope this is accurate. I've only had about 4 oz to test from. Zingy in its mouthfeel. Yet again slick though. A little watery. I guess that's it.

Overall (3.12 - just like its name) : To make lemonade out of lemons, I'm glad it wasn't another beer that got spilled. So I guess that's my roundabout way of saying that it isn't the best beer that's graced my lips. It ain't half bad but I've sure had better wheat beers. I haven't had anything from Goose Island yet that has overly impressed me, so I guess we'll see what else they have to offer. Still pissed that I spilt my beer.

Serviceable, but there are inch better wheats out there. Dry. A bit bland at the finish.
