This was definitely the best beer that I had during my time in Chicago. It has a very yeasty aroma and a cloudy appearance. It is clearly unfiltered and tastes wonderful. It’s very creamy with the taste of yeast and hops, with a hint of lemon? This is a very good beer, which I highly recommend.

Faded whitish lemon yellow with a waffer thin cap of white foam slipping right off to a skinny collar. Some broken up, uneven sheets of lace stick across the glass closer to the liquid.
Aroma is of pale wheat dough, lightly fruit sided with a starchy banana-like cookie mixed with lemon bread poking through.
Taste is fine, wheaty, slippery, a little light in a couple areas, but never weak really. It ghostly stays to the back of the palate with a wheat stamp of lightly snappy texture and buzz while a soft, very light banana/lemon bread dough kinda floats in and out around the corners giving it just enough extra interest helping it from being completely boring or average.
Feel is smooth and malty with a pale wheat backed texture that fits well with what it’s offering. The carbonation is medium and well rounded with a bold snappy front and middle. Finish is a little drab and empty but tends to soften out and build with a light drying wheaty, grassy, doughy malt coating the palate late.
A decent pale wheat brew that can be enjoyed by many a glass full.

There’s a reason that Goose Island took this off their seasonal list and started brewing it year round. Their description of 312 as having "densely populated flavor" is definitely accurate. There’s a lot more depth of flavor than most wheat bears, but it still remains quite refreshing despite having a slightly bitter aftertaste.

220z bomber. Hazy orange-yellow color. Subdued aroma, a little sweet wheat and malt. The taste is solid, not unlike a Bavarian Hefe, but without the banana yeast characteristics. Some light lemony tang. Excellent full mouthfeel, while still relatively light on the palate. Crisply balanced by the hops, this is quite refreshing and easy drinking.

12 oz bottle. Dull orange color, off white head, great lacing. Aroma of black pepper and orange rind. Taste is citrus, malt, light spice, and the barest hint of burnt embers. Interesting.

12 ounce bottle from thetomG in Secret Santa Winter 10. Thanks! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of bread, citrus, stone fruits and a bitter finish. The taste is bitter citrus notes, some tropical notes as well, wheat, bread, an almost crackery note. Nutty finish. Thin-medium bodied. Solidly made and would probably be very nice to session during the summer.

Very nice. Surprising flavours. This is far less sweet and bubblegum than something like Hoegaarden. 312 tastes much more like a beer, it has some bitterness, a deeper malt behind the citrus. Also has lots of very small bubbles so gives a very smooth and velvety experience.
