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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Light golden with fizzy white head that quickly dissipated to a thin ring. Sedimentation in suspension. Aroma is wheat, clove, esthers, floral. Mouthfeel is decent with a lighter body and average carbonation. Taste is dry with a slight hop bitterness and CO2 sharpness in the finish. Overall, this is an average attempt at a sessionable wheat beer.

A pale wheat ale. Hints of citrus. Drank cold and went down easy. A little hoppy on the back end but nothing that detracts from the taste. Would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

Golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat and some citrus. Nice snappy, somewhat creamy flavor, you can tell that itís unfiltered. Very refreshing and goes down smooth, an above average wheat beer. Light bodied, lively carbonation, crisp finish.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste light, summery, a hint of lemon. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Ok beer, not much taste to it, but not offensive either. I didnít notice much of anything floating in the beer and it didnít have that strong wheat taste that I usually enjoy. I would drink a few if they were offered, but Iím not going to buy any more myself.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle/can. Easy to drink. Slightly hazy pour. Really smooth. The flavors donít really pop. Very low in Alcohol content, wanting to be stronger. Great summer beer. Its smooth and balanced to the head. I feel it lacks character compared to other wheat ales as it states in its description. I still like it! Much better then all your bars light beers!

The aroma is sweet with hints of wheat that are not very strong. Also, a hint of citrus as well. Itís slightly hazy, light golden in color. There are hints of citrus in with wheat, but not overly favorable.
