3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a cloudy yellow. Small white head. Some lacing. Mild citrus aroma. Flavor of yeast and citrus. Overall this is a nice wheat beer. Not on par with Oberon (Bells) or Whitson (Arcadia) yet a good easy drinking summer beer. Hard to go anywhere in Chicago where this isnít on tap. Not every beer can be critically acclaimed, but Goose Island had done a fantastic job marketing this (312 = Chicago area code) and I am sure this beer rules the market.

FCBF 09. We went back for more stout, it was gone, but at least they replaced it with another of their beers we hadnít tried, this one. Pale color with a full head. Light palate but still a nice delicate taste.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(draft @ 2009 Flour City Brewerís Fest - Frontier Field - Rochester, NY) Clear yellow pour with a light white head. Aroma is dry and grainy with some very light citrus and yeast. Flavor is much the same. Very dry at the front with a light citrus and some spice notes. Almost tastes like a witbier.

Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is similar, with some citrus fruit. Not much to this beer but not bad for drinking for refreshment.

22oz bomber. I couldnít help but try one of these eventually. As my nickname is Blaze312 it seemed like a good idea. Pours a watery piss yellow color. Little head that eventually disappears. Aroma is wheat and slight hops. Taste is very comparable.

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.
