COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Pours pale and hazy with a frothy head. The aroma is mild with a citric character. Boring and unsubstantial. Thin body.

Pour is a cloudy light yellow with a white head. Nose is rather mild, some light fruit, but mainly dominated by the wheat, taste is very similar.

Shared with Immy. From bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Nose is musty wheat and light lemon. Flavor follows with a rough, metallic aftertaste. Lightly carbonated palate.

Poured from a bottle, hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of spices and lemon. Taste is sweet with a pod tart aftertaste. Good carbonation. Decent wheat, maybe the best one I can get my hands on from local stores. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In bottle while in Chicago .. didn’t enjoy this one. Very watery, fruity yet creamy ... I would not buy again

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - NOV 11, 2012
Very nice. Surprising flavours. This is far less sweet and bubblegum than something like Hoegaarden. 312 tastes much more like a beer, it has some bitterness, a deeper malt behind the citrus. Also has lots of very small bubbles so gives a very smooth and velvety experience.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy light straw yellow color with a thin, fizzy head. Light lemon zest and grassy aroma. Flavor is a little lacking, but I can pick up some light traces of wheat and lemon in the finish. Very watery texture with lively carbonation. Refreshing but not the most flavorful offering.

Maddog (445) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2006
This one sort of disappointed me after enjoying the 5 new Wheat series from Goose Island. 312 was way, way too light and lifeless. If I tried very hard, I could deciphor a hint of the wheat beer flavor and spice, but it just fell short in terms of body and flavor. The Bud Lite of Wheat beers.

ChiGuy68 (443) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden yellow with good carbonation and a white, bubbly, quickly dissipating head. Moderate aroma and taste of wheat and malt.

Bork (443) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Good session-strength wheat beer. Not a lot of flavors but crisp, clean and highly refreshing.
