From 12oz bottle to Bruges hybrid glass on 5/27/12
*From notes

A: Cloudy summer sun in color. A good pour yields a bone white and bubbly 1.5 finger head. Not a whole lot of lacing and a thin collar follow.

S: Like a bready lemon drop. Lots of wheat and citrus fill the nose from the start to the finish.

T: Low key and really pleasant. I like the clean lines here, which is something I don't often say about wheat beers, as the muddled flavors really tend to put me off. But this is crisp, showcasing some light, sunny citrus, wheat, dried banana chips, grass and cool pudding. It all comes together kinda like a lemon infused Kolsch.

M: Very light, very bubbly. Again, clean lines abound, which suits me to a tee. The carbonation's a bit sharp, but it really works in this hotter weather.

O: Welcome to Virginia, Goose Island! I'm more then stoked to see GI on our retail shelves, and part of the reason is this beer right here. This screams flavorful summer sessioning, and I plan on having sixers of this around every dog day this summer season. Easily recommended.

At Citi Field for the Mets game

A - Cloudy yellow straw color. Fluffy white foam.

S - Smells of grain and citrus. Refreshing scent on a hot day.

T - A good thirst quencher. Nice flavor of wheat that has enough lemon zest to make it tasty.

M - Perfect beer for the summer. Light feel, flavors hit the taste buds, and easy drinker.

O - Its a nice beer to have cold on a hot and humid day. Not much more, but in that scenario its great.

A: very thin head on a hazy straw colored body.

S: wheat, grains and hint of slightly sour lemon.

T: grains and wheats. lemon provides more of zest and peppery note, differing from the aroma.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: obviously very drinkable. Nice flavor for a usually bland genre. one of the better for the style.

Had on tap at Bethany Blues BBQ.

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head that is gone rather quickly. Minimal lacing followed.

S: Lots of wheat, some orange, orange peel, and plenty of spice as well. Almost hefe like. A little too floral in a way actually.

T: Again more wheat, with some yeast, spice, and zest. It is surprisingly zesty with slight tartness actually. As it warms it becomes a bit grainy.

M: Medium bodied with high carbonation, I could feel small bubbles with each sip.

O: A decent beer that I would drink again if better options were not available.

Poured from a bottle into a perfect pint

A- pours a ridiculously pale shade of yellow with a one finger pure white head. Man, it looks like a berliner weisse. THAT pale. Head is nice, though

S- light lemony aroma coming out of this one. Not very strong, almost smells more like lemonade as opposed to the zest

T- very slight lemonade taste...slight bitterness, slight sweetness

M- thin body. About what I expected

O- for what this is, it's a damn good beer. Very easy drinking and nonoffensive
