COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, itís a beer thatís densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We donít filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thatís how you know itís unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. Itís not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youíd expect.

Yellow and a bit hazy. A light wheat beer for the masses seems to be the goal of this beer. Flavor is light, a bit of grainy wheat, a hint of citrus. Body is light and fizzy. Not much depth here, just a "Wheat Light" kind of beer that macro drinkers can enjoy and feel good about.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours a clear lemon yellow with very light white head. Aroma is of overwhelming citrus and yeast. Flavor is Lemon and wheat but very light, to the point of watery. Not that impressive---definitely expected more from goose island.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours hazy light staw with a fine white head, very similar to the look of hoegaarden. Wonderful aroma for a wheat, citrus, yeast and wheat...doughy. This is definitely one of the most delicate American wheats. Spring water like crispness. Pretty sugary, subtle flavors, with a yeasty, un-malted wheat finish. A lemon might be just what this needs (which is always unfortunate to say...)

Goose Island 312 is a cloudy, light amber color with a lighter body than a standard wheat ale. Low bitterness, a smooth finish and a nice citrus aftertaste make this a refreshing beer.

An almost gold pour with a white head and lace. Aroma of light citrus and hints of paper. Very light malt with a hint of a pleasant bitter finish. A bit thin bur overall pretty good carbonation. Very good refreshing drinker that has a good finishing bitter and is pretty solid all round.

Bottle poured a hazy gold color with a decent whitish head that doesnít last long. Very mild aroma of citrus. Fruity ale flavor. Good sessional brew.

HonkeyBra (3344) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 Pours hazy with slight head. Taste is refreshing and flavorful for a wheat ale. If you like wheat ales, this is definitely a good one. This is better than blue moon, but Iím not a big fan of wheat ales in general.

Bottle. Had this only once after more than a few other brews, so the details are a little hazy. Very flavorful wheat beer though. One of the best of the style I have had.

Draft. A light colored light flavored beer. Slightly fruity in flavor. Good easy drinking alternative to light beer.
