The Goose is Loose in Connecticut, finally! My salesmen have been taunting me with the Goose Island beers for over a year now, and as of May 1st theyíve finally been released. Just today we received our first shipment which included this little gem, the 312 Urban Wheat Ale.
Despite its appearance in the picture, the 312 pours a light straw shade of yellow, with a bright white one finger foam on top. As the foam recedes, a small amount of lacing remains.On the nose, the 312 is a light crisp combination of malts, wheat, citrus, and just a touch of soft hops.
The Goose 312 drinks somewhere between a crisp summer ale and a soft American wheat ale. The body is light and easy drinking, thereís a subtle hint of hops, just a little sweetness, and nice lingering finish.
This is the first time Iíve had the Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat ale, and Iím definitely a fan. Where I come from we do our best to keep the freezer full of geese, but now that Goose Island is available in Connecticut, the hunt is going to be a lot easier.

Tap at Pub 819 in a pint glass. Hard to believe I havenít rated this one yet. Probably my first "favorite" beer. Aroma of faint banana and wheat. Minimal aroma. Lacing is good but not much along the lines of head. Taste is very grain-centric. Plenty of wheat and cereal elements. Soft fruit presence of lemon and banana. Easy to drink and refreshing. Thin palette. Aftertaste is mostly grainy. Nostalgically I enjoy this effort but itís not really all that good. In the wheat ale category, itís decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Slight hazy straw with short lasting white head. Lemon and lime, candy, sweet biscuits, pretzels, light herbal hoppy finish. Medium bodied with creamy feel. Very sessionable and still tasty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy warm golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, straw. Sweet malty flavour. Sweet finish. Quite boring really. Pitty, was looking forward to this one, I love a good American wheat ale.

Yellow coloured brew with an OK head. A bit simple and uninteresting but not bad at all.

Great session beer. Delicious beer for a hot sunny day. 312 does not lack on flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in Chicago
Good looking pour, elegant like a good pilsner. Mellow flavors, neither a lot of hop character nor a lot of the esters. Entirely drinkable but not a lot of character.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden yellow color. Aroma of grain and malt. Taste of sweat wheat, orange, fruity banana yeast and a slight funky sourness. Boring and simple beer.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lichtgeel, ietwat troebel bier. Geur van brood is wat opvalt. De smaak is wat vlak, weinig diepte, in de nasmaak komt weer de smaak van brood terug. Fris biertje, maar weinig smaak.

Aroma of wheat, bread, spicy notes, trace of hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. A bit unremarkable, but easy and drinkable.
