Poured from the bottle into a clean pint glass.
It pours a hazy bright yellow with minimal white head. Pleasant to look at through a pint glass.
Smell - Not much to make note of. Some scents of wheat and maybe a very faint citrus aroma.
Taste - Nothing is really overly dominating here. Wheat finds it self well balanced with the hops. Not much flavor to speak of.
Mouthfeel - Has smaller carbonation bubbles than normal, almost champagne like. Light in body.
Overall - It's a very easy drinking, hot 100 degree day beer. Perfect beer for the hot summer days and nights. Not much flavor or hop bitterness, again, very easy to drink. Lower alc percentage makes this a great summer session beer. I would definitely buy it again for the summer days.

Tried this on tap at Turner Field. If I am going to spend $$ for beer, hats off to Turner Field for at least bringing some craft beers along.
Poured a nice one finger head, which held up well on a humid night, in a plastic tumbler. good creamy head, can't wait to see this in a real weissen glass.
Good clean wheat aroma, not the easiest place to try and develop a smell, but it was definitely fresh,
I thought the taste was a good American wheat beer, not as floral, and citrus as the German brews, which I think is a good idea, let the American flavor stand alone. I can always get the true German imports, but I give great thumbs up when the American Craft brews do this type decent.
Mouthfeel was refreshing, but actually had some chew, I liked it very much, and if I was in a regular bar, would have ordered this one for a second go.
Overall, my first Goose Island, and I was very pleased. I will look for it in bottles now, especially when I need to get a decent American Wheat that isn't from a Macro brewery. Give this one a try.
