Faded whitish lemon yellow with a waffer thin cap of white foam slipping right off to a skinny collar. Some broken up, uneven sheets of lace stick across the glass closer to the liquid.
Aroma is of pale wheat dough, lightly fruit sided with a starchy banana-like cookie mixed with lemon bread poking through.
Taste is fine, wheaty, slippery, a little light in a couple areas, but never weak really. It ghostly stays to the back of the palate with a wheat stamp of lightly snappy texture and buzz while a soft, very light banana/lemon bread dough kinda floats in and out around the corners giving it just enough extra interest helping it from being completely boring or average.
Feel is smooth and malty with a pale wheat backed texture that fits well with what it's offering. The carbonation is medium and well rounded with a bold snappy front and middle. Finish is a little drab and empty but tends to soften out and build with a light drying wheaty, grassy, doughy malt coating the palate late.
A decent pale wheat brew that can be enjoyed by many a glass full.
Color is medium golden, with a decent bit of cloudiness. Smell has strong wheat, with mild citrus and some spices. Taste is very good, with a notable wheat/yeast tone at the start. Minor citrus/lemon next, with a very minor hops presence. Feel is good, with carbonation especially notable.
Overall, this is one of my favorite American wheat beers. It's a solid, readily available choice for summer.
highly quafable summer brew. Nice head and mouthfeel kind of flabby in the midpalate but hey it's a mass produced Goose Island product... nose of citrus with some doughy yeasty aspects coming through with time...
seems to be more of a heffe style beer than anything else...
