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.

Douberd (2902) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2015
(Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 4.2% Golden yellow colour on the body, a bit cloudy but not really hazy, small and thin white head on top, with average retention, leaving light lacing behind. Faint aroma, some wheat and traces of hops. Taste has malts, straw, light citrus. Medium thin body, carbonation towards the high side. Nothing special but it drinks good. Better local options out there though.

Countbeer (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle (35,5cl): Served in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees Celsius: Hazy yellow. Light white head. Aromas and flavours are quite alike: of wheat, corn, dust, hint of some fruit like banana, some malts, hints of card board, hay and yeast... Aftertaste is wheat, cardboard, bitter, light fruit, corn and some yeast... Low to medium carbo, light watery light creamy tingly mouthfeel, low to medium bodied. Meh...

jamesewelch (131) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2015
12 oz bottle, 4 oz pour, for BJCP study group, into tasting glass

Aroma: Grainy, doughy, wheaty, low flora and spicy hops with some sweetness from malts, moderate esters

Appearance: Pale yellow with slight haze, white minimal head, not very well retained

Taste: Wheat lingers into finish, low hop bitteress with some American or citrus hops, crisp finish

Mouthfeel: medium body, good carbonation, soft profile

Overall: Very wheaty, doughy flavor, some hop bitterness but not too much. Good wheat beer, but ultimately unsatisfying.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Cloudy gold. Bubbly, thick, white head. Fairly bland, lager malt aroma. Pick up a little wheat ale character. Taste is soft sweet. Soft dry. Creamy palate. Finishes light dry. Some sweetness. Bland.

MonsterMagnet (412) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle, pours hazy light yellow with a white head. Yeasty aroma, barnyard saison like. Very thin body, feels watery and thereís little to taste really. A bit like a thin lemon lemonade with a bit of apple. Aroma and taste donít match at all. Nah.

Nah not for me. No real wheat or good things associated with a good wheat beer, just like a cloudy bud. May be a slight better than shock top. Very watery and lemon peel not balanced at all. Blah
