COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, itís a beer thatís densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We donít filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. Thatís how you know itís 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. Itís not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that youíd expect.

Pours hazy straw with little white head retention. Mild aroma of some bread and hay. Bland and boring.

bhops (432) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2009
bottle. Pours yellow and flat. Aroma of some hay, grass, wheat. Flavor is some spice, wheat, apple, understated. Thin and fizzy, not that great.

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - SEP 6, 2012
330 ml bottle. In general a nicely wheat-characterized late-summer beer, but I think this one tastes a little too sweet.

junon (428) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Fine looking beer. Aroma wise it has that unmistakable unfiltered wheaty/bready essence. Other than that not much. Light to maybe just under Medium bodied. Which was a let down. Flavour wise some initial punch of soft fruit but almost no follow through. Drink and forget.

dlihcsnatas (427) - Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow brew with the smell of lemon. Other than the lemon zest there doesnít seem to be much else going for this one. Pretty boring brew with nothing really making me want to purchase more. Glad I got a sampler bottle rather than a whole six pack.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy yellow, thin white head. Aroma of light cloves, flowers and wheat. Initial taste of wheat, then some fruit and finishes with some bread. Crisp, light to medium body. Good summer easy drinking brew.

i was a little let down with this one. this wheat beer was clear. the beer is not filtered but it is over centrifuged! missing the yeast taste.

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.
