COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Drjohnrock (690) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle brought to Thanksgiving dinner by one of Mrs. Drjohnrock’s relatives. Slightly hazy yellow color, astringent tart/chemical nose, annoying astringent/chemical taste with some wheat but not enough. I originally had this beer before the megabrewer takeover. I’ve misplaced my notes from back then but I remember it as being way better than this. So the 312 is messed up like the GI IPA is. Bravo, A-B InBev. I won’t drink any more GI beers unless I get them free like this one.

Pretty good wheat beer that doesn’t stand out from the crowd, but doesn’t suck, either. Goose Island makes a lot better stuff than this, so it’s not indicative of a bad company at work, but it’s a very middle-of-the-road beer overall.

Albert Heyn. Smaakt een beetje als hefe weizen, maar voor een romige pilsener is het wel flink aan de prijs. Backlog from 2015/03/31.

Some interesting sweetness close to honey flavors mixed with some more hops than what you expect from a wheat ale.

Zupastan (160) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2015
35,5 cl bottle @ home. Clear light orange beer with a small, white head that vanishes quickly, non adhesive. Aroma is wet grains, bread, lemons. Very soft carbonation. Taste is grains, sugary, quite sweet, lemony, corn, very watery. Aftertaste is dry, bready, rotten wheat.

Nothing special. Has some sediment but it's a wheat beer. Not bad, but nothing stands out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Light crackers, lime zest, white bread, and fresh, slightly citrusy hops. Very serviceable mouthfeel, slightly silky and well-carbonated. The taste is mildly bitter, with clean biscuity and citrusy flavors leading to a dry finish. Refreshing.
