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.

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.

Very good offering of a wheat beer, with a creamy yet earthy finish a highly drinkable wheat beer

Aroma is light, wheat heavy. Appearance is a piss yellow, clear. Taste is what it is: light, wheat beer. The mouthfeel is meh; carbonated, but not so much. Overall, itís forgettable, but better than a Budweiser.

On tap 7/14 @ the Wrigleyville Brewpub: Pours a cloudy yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma is yeasty with hints of lemon, banana, and spices. Flavor is initially sweet with a grainy finish. A nice summer brew!

12oz bottle. light lemony yellow color has a slight haze. bright white frothy head. yeasty citric aroma smells clean. toasty grains play a part as well as mild bubblegum. a soft grainy easy drinking wheat ale. some fruit bubblegum and dry crusty finish are also present.

Goose Island 312 is a cloudy, light amber color with a lighter body than a standard wheat ale. Low bitterness, a smooth finish and a nice citrus aftertaste make this a refreshing beer.

citrusy and fruity with a decent body. it is actually very drinkable and crisp, but it lacks character. a good summer/session brew for those lacking a bit of imagination or motivation.

I saw this brew on tap at the Fox & Hound chain restaurant in Schaumburg last night, and decided to check it out. It had a slightly darker yellow color, and a quickly dissipating white creamy head. The taste had a short burst of spice, followed by a lot of wheat protein and "graininess". The finish was a dirty/slightly grassy hops kind of thing. It would be a thirst quencher on a hot day, but something you might get tired of real fast.
