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 they’ve 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, there’s a subtle hint of hops, just a little sweetness, and nice lingering finish.
This is the first time I’ve had the Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat ale, and I’m 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.

33cl bottle. Hazy pale golden pour with thin white head, no lacing. Aromas of fresh bread, iron and leather. Taste is low on bitter, a bit sweet, bland with taste of metal. Aftertaste is short, watery and, again, metallic. Expected more from this.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is banana, wheat, and hops. The taste is the same. It was creamy and a bit heavy. It was pretty good though.

Aroma is pale but there is banana, clove and pineapple with some sweet malts. Taste is sweet wheat, clove and straw. Sadly finishes fairly flatly. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains ok.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
No thanks real impressed with this. Should be classified as a pale ale. Way too hoppy to be a wheat ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with a white head that disappears with a quick pace. Strong wheaty and citrusy aroma. Floral hints and some clear yellow fruits as well. Sweet nose if you ask me. Taste is smoothly soft. Sweet, yeasty with a small citrusy kick. Nice, yet bland however, and with the absent bitterness and average (yeasty) aftertaste, this misses quite a lot. Watery texture and light bodied with heavy carbonation. Enjoyable brew, ideal as a thirst-quencher, but nothing more.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Robe orangée et opaque. Le peu de mousse qui se forme se dissipe rapidement.
Saveurs dominantes de malt, biscuit, légères notes de fruits jaunes.
Malheureusement, cette bière est aqueuse et courte en bouche.
Une blanche médiocre.
