If you like a "Sweet Tart" tasting summer ale... well, this is for you. You can have the other five bottles of the six I bought.
Pours a bright hazy yellow, with plenty of fizz and foam. If you had to take pictures of a summer ale, this might be the model of choice.
The nose is of bright, zesty citrus. OK, if it's hot outside I suppose this could be inviting.
The taste is tart, sweet with a hoppy edge. If it's 102 degrees in the shade and 80% humidity I might drink this beer... but then I would drink Bud Light under those conditions. This is not a recommendation.
I don't know what Goose Island was thinking here, but a lot of Budweiser is sold. There is no accounting for taste.

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.
