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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 I am a big fan of heffewiezen so I was initially disappointed with this beer. By the time I got to the end of the six pack however I changed my mind and my rating. Good smooth refreshing wheat beer.

Bottle. Straw yellow and cloudy with a steady white head. Lovely hoppy aroma with spices and wheat. Flavourwise itís really crisp and light but imparts a fair bit of flavour. Thereís a wheaty body with dashes of grape, grapefruit, honey and floral notes. Light and breezy and would straddle well between the lager drinkers and the real ale suppers.

Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat has a thick, rumply head and a very bubbly, hazy, yellow-golden appearance, with thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of stinging white bread, a touch of lemon, and a lot of tap water. Flavor is of the same, with a subdued bitterness, underneath. Mouthfeel is soft and medium, and Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat finishes dry, refreshing, and very drinkable. Overall, this is a good beer. RJT

Transfer from BA review on 4-16-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer pours a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a big and billowy white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma is of a grainy wheat smell with a strong hint of a lemon citrus and some sweeter fruit aromas of an orange nature. Mixed with all these are some aromas of a yeasty and grassy aroma as well. Taste- The taste begins with a smooth bready flavor upfront. As the taste moves on, more grainy wheat flavors come to the tongue with some of the citrus detected in the nose coming to the tongue as well. The citrus is quite light however and is much less then would have been detected in the nose. The little bit of lemon and wheat flavors are soon joined by some grassy hop and more yeasty flavors in the end, leaving a rather smooth and crisp wheat bread flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel ĖThe body of the beer is on the slightly lighter side in its thickness with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thinner body is nice for keeping it a refreshing brew while the medium carbonation is good for balancing the drinkability with the nice grainy flavors. Overall Ė A rather refreshing and quite nice drinking brew. It has a nice light body with a good blend of grainy wheat and light grassy and citrus flavors to make for a good session brew.

Bottle: White head, lacing is good. Cloudy gold in color. Aroma is wheaty, lemony, hints of banana and clove as well. Taste is good, a solid offering for a wheat. I had some bad experiences with wheat beers when I first tried, but I think they are starting to grow on me. Maybe I just had bad imitations of them before I started rating them. For this style, this is excellent. Canít totally understand why this is getting such low ratings.
