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 bad beer by any means. Very easy to drink and great on a hot day but not so much if the beer warms up. I would just go for Honkers or any other beer in their line as they have more flavor.

R2k2 (422) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Slightly cloudy, yet stil transparant yellow beer with a firm brownish layer of foam. It has a somewhat freshly sour aroma, like from a fresh lemon, with a sweet touch. A nice, soft, bitter-sour taste and it leaves a nice, dry palate. Een iets troebel, doch nog transparant lichtgeel gekleurd bier met een stevige, compacte bruinachtige kraag. Het aroma is fris zuur, zoals van verse citroen, met een zoete tint. Een lekker, zacht bitterdere smaak met een lekkere droge afdronk.

Drjohnrock (646) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle brought to Thanksgiving dinner by one of Mrs. Drjohnrockís relatives. Slightly hazy yellow color, astringent tart/chemical nose, annoying astringent/chemical taste with some wheat but not enough. I originally had this beer before the megabrewer takeover. Iíve misplaced my notes from back then but I remember it as being way better than this. So the 312 is messed up like the GI IPA is. Bravo, A-B InBev. I wonít drink any more GI beers unless I get them free like this one.

Pretty good wheat beer that doesnít stand out from the crowd, but doesnít suck, either. Goose Island makes a lot better stuff than this, so itís not indicative of a bad company at work, but itís a very middle-of-the-road beer overall.
