A flowery scent with the hint of peaches emerges from the pour. A smooth white head of moderate stature slowly recedes with active carbonation keeping a thin film alive. Some lacing sticks to the glass.
The brew is a hazy, honey yellow color, with just enough clarity to see the shadowy blur of your fingers through the glass.
The flavor is well balanced and almost meaty for a wheat beer; it probably benefits from the lack of filtering. Grain and citrus fruit acidity up front are followed with a nicely matched hop bill to give it a tangy finish.
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.
