3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 (Re-rate) 12 oz. bottle. Weird to see "Goose Island, Fort Collins, CO" on the label now. This is everywhere now and will be even more places when they start rolling out new area codes. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold color with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, sweet dough, and mild spice. Flavor is the same, albeit without a hint of any spice. Just wheat and citrus. Very light. Moderate carbonation, some sweetness. When Iím at a wedding or ballgame and have limited options, this will do just fine.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
An OK golden ale - nondeScript. Doesnít make itself known as a wheat beer - very light esters and a bit of sweetness, but no strong character. Drinkable, but forgettable.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Come on, this was not cloudy, nor did I detect Cascade hops. I must have had a different 312.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours bright golden with a 2-inch white head that settles slowly. The ale has a very slight haze and the haze aside, looks like a pilsner. The lacing is very modest. Hints of hops in the nose. Light on the palate. Light body. An unexpected, and to me undesirable after-taste. The unpleasant, but yet unidentified aftertaste lingers. Fortunately, the after taste is light as well. Carbonation is moderate. The wheat characteristics are barely perceptible. This is a light ale and may appeal to many for that reason. I find it a decent summer, quaffing beer, but wish it had more to offer than the pervasive lightness (carbonation, nose, body, and flavor).

12oz bottle today at Brickskellar, one of the few beers I knew I hadnít had. Pours yellow with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet, wheaty, and light. Taste was sweet, light and just ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Straw color, very nice lacing. Fairly straightforward American wheat with some tanginess to it, low hops ( I didnít notice the Cascades), light body. Refreshing. Recommended if you like the style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Very pale gold, greenish tinge, thin white head. Not a huge aroma, touch of soap on the hop, but really refreshing beer. Bit dullish, little bit of lemon edge to it, more an American wheat than a wit. Not very exciting but very refreshing.
