cloudy straw colored brew the a decent head and a bit of lace sticking as I drink. Malty aromas with a healthy wheat component and lemony zing. Taste is dry gains, malt sweetness and lemon. mild wheat malt presence and bit of yeasty dough as well. Smooth soft crispness in the feel with a pleasurable amount of carbonation and quenching dryness. A great summer quencher and session A lawn mower beer with flavor and a bit of pizazz.
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.
