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.

Drank with Bram 29-04-2015. Mediocre beer. Tasteless beer, watery, slightly bitter, but doesn’t have much on it.

Nice yellow color and a little cloudy appearance. The head is white but is small. The smell is minimal. There is a little sweetness in the distance. The taste is also not very special. It is better than regular beer however. It is more sweet and has a little more flavor. There is a little flavor in the finish, maybe a hint of almonds and raisins?

Completely inoffensive. Not a bad beer just not that interesting. A good beer for a summer BBQ if you have friends who like lighter beers

Very refreshing smell, a bit sweet, little fruity. First sip is really good. Nice balance between the wheat and hops. A little banana, a little pear, very well made. Love the design on the bottle btw.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Léger ressenti de blé avec quelques notes citronnées. Olfactif discret. De couleur blanche, brouillée avec une petite mousse effervescente et éphémère.
Une attaque légèrement citronnée aux notes de pain et de blé, avec une texture assez aqueuse. Le corps est mince. L’effervescence active et piquante. A part les notes de céréales qui donnent parfois l’impression de boire une pilsner, il n’y a pas grand chose à se mettre sous la dent.
