On tap at the Clyborne location.

Pours a unfiltered hazy deep gold with a thin white head that does not persist.
According to Miguell, a German yeast is used that give this its Banana and clove esters. Some lemon citrus adds to the fuity aroma. Mildly sweet wheat malt flavor with lighter body and lightly creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is strong and adds to crisp sharp finish.

Now this was a nice treat on a warm Chicago afternoon in spring. Pours a hazy deep amber in color with a thin white head that had little retention. Nose is classic hefe, strong banana notes abound, made my mouth water. Also some citrusy notes and bits of spice here and there. Quite fruity and very refreshing, perfect warm weather beer. I could drink a lot of this, a nice staple sort of brew.

Slàinte!

Sampled on tap at the Goose Island Clyborne location
This beer has a thin off-white head that sits a top a hazy deep gold colored beer. Clove notes dominate the aroma, but there is some banana and a pleasing tart lemon character here as well. The taste is soft and smooth up front. It finishes with a nice clove element and a certain sharpness that seems to be derived from the carbonation, a certain acidity, and an overall yeast character. Once again, I am quite impressed by these beers. This is a great quaffer on a humid Chicago afternoon: light, refreshing, fruity, with a good crispness & flavor from the wheat. I really like the sharpness that is in the finish, it helps to balance the rest of the flavor components found in this beer.

Cloudy straw appearance. Pours with an excellent head and has good lace through out. Mixture of citrus and grassy/wheat (straw?) aroma. Mildly hoppy taste. Thick creamy texture. Excellent balance of malt, wheat and yeast. Overall, excellent weiss. My favorite Goose yet.

I had this one on tap at the Wrigleyville outpost.

The beer was a golden yellow. Minimum head. Very hazy and with nice lacing. Perfect pour and perfect appearance for style

Smell is clove and spice. Lots of malt rises up to meet your nose. Very nice!

The taste is very German which to me means they have the taste nailed. The beer is incredibly refreshing. Great wheat malt balance. Spicy notes are just perfect.

Easy to drink beer here and a damn fine representative of this style!
