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.

not a big fan of wheat beers. pours golden with white head. hazy color, slight floral and lemony-fruit (as opposed to lemony hop) smells. smooth body and a slightly dry finish. ok but nothing special

Pale straw yellow with a creamy white head. Crisp slightly spicy aroma. Light and refreshing.

Very disappointed in this GI offering. Aroma and taste were very bland. Not much to offer here.

Bottle pour. Strong citrus aroma. High carb with a lot of lemon and orange peel flavor. Slow developing wheat finish. Nice, light beer.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Murky straw-colored beer with a lot of effervescence that produces a fizzy white head. Smells faintly of spice, bananas, and a little citrus. Taste is a little bitter up front, which develops into a slight sour spiciness, but overall the flavor profile is quite bland. It has a vibrant, bubbly mouth feel, which is good for this style, but thatís not enough to save this beer from mediocrity. Underwhelming. EDIT: I squeezed a lemon into the next glass I drank, and that improved things a bit. But this is still a pretty bland beer.

Citrusy aroma. Bright yellow body with cloudy white appearance after swirling in the yeast. Mostly lemon with a bit of floury taste. Not super smooth, tastes too much like a light beer.

Had this on tap. Clear with a medium head. Smells of grass, citrus and bannana. Taste crisp mildly sweet. Grain and grass come through on chewing. Medium carbonation which a decent mouth feel. A good example of wheat.

Pours a light color with a thin head and no lacing. Almost no aroma, tastes slightly of weak apple juice. Fortunately only part of a make your own 6 pack so not much of an investment, which is fortunate since itís not worth drinking other than to quench thirst...barely.

Not bad at all. It’s not anything to write home about, but it’s a solid choice if you want a wheat beer. I’d prefer Hoegaarden for sure, but if you’re in the midwest, some 312 wouldn’t be a bad choice.
