330ml bottle poured into a Troubadour tulip glass

Look: Pours a straw yellow - one finger of white head, little retention and next to no lacing.

Smell: Hops and citrus, primarily orange, backed up by a fairly wheaty/yeasty, almost bread-like, aroma.

Taste: Quite fruity, but not in the Belgian witbier sense. Quite difficult to describe. Quite yeasty, too. Surprisingly good with a surprisingly amount of depth to it.

Feel: This doesn't drink like a typical witbier/weissbier, no sirree. Has quite a 'thick' yeasty feel which I've not (knowingly) encountered in the German and Belgian beers that I normally prefer. Whatever, it works beautifully.

Overall: Goose Island has been a bit hit and miss for me, but this is an absolute bullseye. Don't try and compare it to a Belgian or German wheat beer because this is a totally different animal - an American spin on weissbier? Who cares - it's pretty damned good and I could quite imagine myself revisiting this again. And again. Two thumbs up.
