This beer is okay, very crisp, very dry.

Would drink it again but not seek it out.

Good beer. It's almost like a shandy though. Very fruity. It's almost like it doesn't know what it is, but it's good. I wouldn't complain if it wasn't quite as light, but it's fine. I haven't had a terrible beer from GI, and this isn't either.

I purchased this one at my local mall in northern France and was pleasantly surprised to find it here. So The review :
12 oz bottle poured into a teku glass.
Pours a two inches white head fading quickly.
This wheat ale is not particularly memorable or remarkable in any way. It's actually the weakest of all of Goose Islands products that I have tried so far. Not to say it's bad, but their beers are usually very good...

Golden body, short white head and lots of fine lacing. Quiet nose, a bit funky. Taste is has subtle banana, white bread and mild tea flavors. Superbly clean, extremely drinkable on tap. Giving this another try, it is far better than my first experience.

Pours a pale yellow hazy gold color. Smells of wheat and some caramel. Tastes of sweet wheat and caramel. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall this is a decent wheat Ale.

L: Pale gold, hazy. Head didn't build or last like I would have expected

S: Lemon, light malt/grain, floral, some kind of faint pond-ish smell like algae or seaweed?

T: Citrus, orange, bready malt, very slightly bitter

O: Delicious, light drinking beer.

Pretty much what you would expect from a mass produced pale ale, not to sound dismissive or supercilious. Not much flavor beyond your standard grain bill with a little stale hop which adds very little
