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.

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.

35.5 cl bottle - frothy white head with the strongest yellow appearance. Wheat palate which disappears very quickly.

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.

GardenGabe (136) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
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.

Drank this six PAC with some friends way late at night and after way too much rum. Found it clean and refreshing. Definitely getting it again.

Pretty good wheat beer. Iíve had better, but I would drink this one again. Nice light citrus flavor.

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.

22oz bomber. I couldnít help but try one of these eventually. As my nickname is Blaze312 it seemed like a good idea. Pours a watery piss yellow color. Little head that eventually disappears. Aroma is wheat and slight hops. Taste is very comparable.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a straw semi-hazy color. White head with low retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, mild citrus and watermelon. The taste is very similar with a dry finish. Iím a bit confused as this is supposed to be unfiltered but is actually quite bright. A very drinkable brew, almost session like.
