Apparently this is available at all Chicagoland WFM locations, found it at Whole Foods in Schaumburg.
The label and marketing on the six pack are pretty generic. Blurbs touting Chicago sound like they were written by a tourist quoting Wikipedia. "Windy City, Chi-Town, skyscrapers, sports, deep dish pizza!" Whooo. So how's the beer? That's what matters right?
Pours a cloudy orange, opaque and golden around the edges. Foamy at first, with a head that settles to a skim after a couple minutes. Spotty arcs of lace dot the edges.
Aroma is vague coriander and dusty wheat. Mild astringency and spiciness. Flavor is moderately bitter towards the end, overly so for a Witbier, with lemon peel and coriander notes. Dry tacky finish. Ham-fisted hop bitterness. Ample carbonation, though the astringency hurts the feel and drinkability. Pretty standard Wit, though unbalanced and slightly more bitter than average. Not something i'd revisit personally.
This beer smacks of phony marketing. Come up with a good beer before marketing it... and stop with the shill reviews already, they're painfully obvious.
