COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don’t filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s 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. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less that you’d expect.

Wheat, lemon rind aroma. Flavor is wheat, citrus, and fresh grains. Fairly typical american wheat... thirst quenching I guess.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Tap at Mad Hatter. Pours a translucent, glowing straw color almost like a witbier with a medium, bright white head leaving pretty good lace. Aroma is grainy, slight lemon, fresh bread. Taste is cream of wheat, slight sweet cherries, lots of yeasty/doughy presence, no balancing bitterness or spice.

Bottle. Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Light yeast and lemon aroma. A very light yeasty flavor, light lemon. Thin bodied with some carbonation. Overall very watered down with little flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 Nothing special, straw colored and tastes like a typical wheat. Nothing earth shattering.

Ratman197 (15468) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle poured a hazy yellow with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, lemon and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, light yeast and light lemon with a crisp lingering wheat finish.

DuffMan (10732) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap at Hub 51 in Chicago. Cloudy pale yellow, modest white head. Zesty spicy aroma with lemony accents. Interesting palate in that it is a little toastier than I would expect from a wheat, lightly spicy, lemony accents. Normally wheat ales bore the shit out of me, but this wasn’t bad. Like a pale ale/wheat ale hybrid.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 Chicago’s finest, Goose Island. I prefer the Stout, but 312 is probably their most famous.

I live in Chicago and have probably had this beer hundreds of times in all forms - so I’m finally getting around to rating it. The best I’ve ever had it was a very fresh keg from the liquor store across the street from Goose Island poured from a Handpump. In that form the beer is rich and wheatey with smooth grain notes and a hint of bitterness. However, when served from a stale keg or drunk straight from the bottle the carbonation ruins and delicate wheat flavor and the hops take over making 312 instead taste like a skunked up watered down pale ale. Enjoy this beer, but enjoy it fresh.

Not quite for me. I’m not much of a wheat fan anyway. Was OK, though not a lot going on with it. Would be a good session beer I suppose, but the wheat undertones turn me off.

On tap. Golden color. Nice head. Very refreshing. One of the better rip session beers I have had in a while.
