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 a straw yellow with a hazy cloud and a thick white head. the aroma is rather weak but i pick up some breadiness and wet grass. the taste is not bitter at all and watered down. other than that there is nothing terrible about the beer, you pick breadiness in the taste. would make a great session beer.

SHANER4 (491) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2007
12oz bottle - Poured a hazy light straw color with nice white head. Aroma was sweet and smelled like grains. A light mouthfeel with wheat and malt taste. This beer is very easy to drink and is slightly watered down tasting which is nice on a summer day. I was fairly satisfied because it is alot better than Miller or Bud at close to the same price $6.29 a 6pac.

So where exactly in the 312 might one grow a little urban wheat for this ale? Or am I being too literal? Iím enjoying this in the early spring and thinking how nice it would taste on a hot summer day -- if Wisconsin gets any this year. The aroma and taste are nicely subdued and it all works.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Had this at Giordanos with a slice of lemon (wtf giordanoís?...) - The beer itself is like a witbier without the belgian touch, but with american hops! Very good, flavors of lemon, coriander, wheat banana and cloves. Crisp and light. Finishes off with a nice low bitterness.

Kolor jest jasno pomaranczowy, jasno bursztynowy, m?tny. Piana bia?a, zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzykůw, nie chcia?a poczeka? a? zrobi? zdjecia. Aromat jest bardzo delikatny, odrobin? morelowy, troch? miodowy, nieco metaliczny, co? jakby woda mineralna z du?? ilo?ci? jonůw ?elaza. Smak, tak jak aromat niesamowicie s?aby, cho? mo?na si? doszuka? moreli, miodu, oraz jak wcze?niej metaliczno??. Goryczka i jak alkohol nie wyczuwalne. Wysycenie jest ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. 312 z browaru Goose Island mimo i? niema zdecydowanego aromatu czy smaku jest piwem niesamowicie orze?wiaj?cym, lekkim i pijalnym, mo?e nawet wodnistym, cho? w tym przypadku jest to raczej atut. Idealne na upa?.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
An aggressively average beer, pouring golden yellow into my chilled glass with a substantial white head. The flavor is a malty wheat blandness with the merest hint of a hoppy follow through.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle at Navy Pier. Pours a light opaque color typical of a wheat ale. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy but a little more doughy/stale than expected. Flavor was very mild and bitter with some sweet/spicyness. Nothing really too special. Palate is unremarkable. Not too great but its worth a try when in Chicago.

Bottle. Hazy light yellow with white head. Fruity, citrus with some malt. Quite bland but not bad. A bit boring perhaps.
