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.

draft. clear golden with thin white head, the aroma is weak citrus. rather undistinguished wheat profile.

theisti (3223) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. Poured cloudy straw color. Some foam that hung around for about 5 minutes. Aroma is distant citrus, bit of malt. The taste is muted wheat and bubbles. Surprised at the carbonation. Nothing really stands out in this one, and certainly is not a big wheat, but it is quite drinakable.

First time Iíve been disappointed with a GI product. Poured a cloudy blonde with a healthy head. The aroma was foul, but there wasnít much of it so Iíll give them some points there. Flavor was sweet with bananas and a little malt. Just not much there.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a hazy yellow, topped by a fizzy quarter inch of nearly white foam. Good carbonation is evident. No head retention, no lacing. Slight dry wheat aroma. Slight wheat flavor - dry but not really tangy. More of a cereal grain than anything else. Light body. Generic hops for balance - no character. You know - thatís it - the lack of character in this beer. It is decent, it is well made, but it does nothing for me.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Hazy pale yellow body, like a lemonade but with straw tones, thin off-white head. Earthy, biscuity aroma. Light, tart, bready body, grassy. Tastes a bit stale despite the 10 April 2007 drink by date, although, come to think of it, that same taste characterizes their Summer Ale. Rather dull and boring, and Iím not a big fan of the palate, either. Pass.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2007
From my tasting notes at an "earlier" date. On tap @ Old Chicago. Poured a slightly hazy straw golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of some cardboard/paper, light lemons, tinge of banana. Flavor is the same with a lot of citrus and tang coming through. Watery body and highly carbonated. Meh.

b33r (669) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Faint aroma, small disappearing head, and little carbonation. Bright golden color. Last few drops added cloudiness that slowly sank to the bottom of glass. Okay flavor, somewhat citrus- but not much to it.

312 is a typical American Wheat beer. It has a nice crisp taste that I enjoy on a hot summer day. A little bit of citrus and banana taste, but not something that you would notice over the wheat unless you drank a lot of it and paid attention. If I want a 12 pack of beer that is pretty good and not too pricey, Iíll pick up 312. Aside from that, itís probably not something that Iíd casually drink.

Airlifter (118) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Dark yellow with a bright white head. Mild, yeasty aroma. Lightly flavored, in a typical American Wheat way. Highly carbonated. Good with a lemon slice.

Funny thing happened as I drank this one. The more I drank the more of a bitter aftertaste I had in my mouth. Never saw the cloudy appearance associated with unfiltered wheat ales, and I saw the gal pull it directly into the glass and set it in front of me. I found this to be average, something I wouldnít turn down, but wouldnít go out of my way to get one.
