bomber into a weizen glass. bottled on 5/18/11.
a- pours an extremely pale yellow color, certainly one of the lightest colors i have seen in a beer. gave me about a fingers worth of white, sudsy head that calmed quickly to a thin film. leaves a few legs of lace here and there.
s - toasted bread with some grassy hops and a bit of spice.
t - light malt sweetness followed by notes of apple and grape. mild hop character cuts the sweetness and finishes on the dry side.
m - light in body with lots of carbonation.
o - good summertime beer, but not one of the better examples of the style. seems light on everything, flavor, smell, feel and enjoyment.
Serving type: bottle

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.
