4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
fruity wheat smell. cloudy straw color. Taste like a wet dough ball, thin on the mouth for as doughy as it taste. Nothing to bad about it but nothing stands out about it. This was from the can and not the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Straw yellow and cloudy with a steady white head. Lovely hoppy aroma with spices and wheat. Flavourwise itís really crisp and light but imparts a fair bit of flavour. Thereís a wheaty body with dashes of grape, grapefruit, honey and floral notes. Light and breezy and would straddle well between the lager drinkers and the real ale suppers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle dated 3/15/2013 bottled in Baldwinsville, NY from a $11.99 12 pk brought from Binnys in Orland Park. Poured into a Franziskaner Weiss glass a hazy, cloudy golden color leaving a thick bright white 2 finger head.
Smells of lemon, wet grain husks.
Somewhat spicy on the tongue at first, med carbonation with lemon ending with a slight soapy finish.
Very easy drinking, excellent lawnmower beer. Are there more flavorful wheat beers out there? Absolutely. But this one is so easy to drink itís no wonder itís a big seller. Always a consideration when Iím shopping for beer. Great session wheat beer.
