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. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2010
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. dbals (9) - Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2010 does not count
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.

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. bpreo (2990) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 Chicago’s finest, Goose Island. I prefer the Stout, but 312 is probably their most famous. drdisque (886) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2010
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. edwardbass (861) - Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2010
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. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap. Golden color. Nice head. Very refreshing. One of the better rip session beers I have had in a while.
