Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle with the date code clearly printed on the band on the neck of the bottle (3/25/13) into a Weizen glass and I get 1 finger of head that dissipates at a moderate rate.
A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with one finger of head that dissipates at a moderate rate to leave a good amount of suds on the top of the glass until the end. Little to no lacing.
S: Bread, lemon, yeast, and some herbs.
T: White bread, lemon, and some hop bitterness.
M: Light and very drinkable and crisp. There is just the right amount of carbonation which makes the bubbles linger on my tongue. This beer is smooth and goes down good.
O: I like this beer an find it refreshing and easy to drink. It finishes slightly bitter and with a little too much lemon aftertaste. That lemon taste really makes it hard to enjoy the second one. The first one is very good and then hard to finish the second.

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.
