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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Outstanding scent of hops and citrus Appearance- A great color, resembles a deep copper shade of orange.. Taste- Excellent flavor, wheat beers are one of my favorite styles. This brew has a lot of character with a strong showing of malt, hops, and citrus. Palate- Full body with a slick texture that has a nice long smooth aftertaste.

Not too bad at all. While the American Wheat pales next to the Belgian Wit or German Weisen this is a nice example of the domestic style. The 312 is the Chicago area code. The inhearent problem of this style is that it has too strong of a hop-grapefruit taste. This is a good beer though

A great wheat beer, cloudy gold in color like a good wheat should, pair well with any citrus if desire, and a presidential favorite. Top ten in best wheat beer in my opinon

Light lemon aroma. Light haze with bright yellow color. Foams to a one finger that settles to thick but thin head.Lots of bubble action can be seen. Mild zesty lemon softened with a hint of bread flavor. Some sourness but you have to pay attention to notice. Refreshing and zesty feel to it but balanced with a soft finish. Superb for this style.

Had this one bottled. Somewhat cloudy dark yellow color, thick head, nose of hops and bread, clean tastes of grapefruit, very, very good wheat beer.
