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

A tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Pretty carbonated, and on the lighter side. Not much character here.

unclemike (3084) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Nice, but not as strongly flavored as I like a wheat beer to be. Thin light head that didnt last long, fairly carbonated, light aroma of wheat, citrus, and yeast. Tastes of wheat and bananas, with a bit of hops and citrus. Not bad at all, but Id like more what and hops bitterness.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Yellow and a bit hazy. A light wheat beer for the masses seems to be the goal of this beer. Flavor is light, a bit of grainy wheat, a hint of citrus. Body is light and fizzy. Not much depth here, just a "Wheat Light" kind of beer that macro drinkers can enjoy and feel good about.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours a clear lemon yellow with very light white head. Aroma is of overwhelming citrus and yeast. Flavor is Lemon and wheat but very light, to the point of watery. Not that impressive---definitely expected more from goose island.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours hazy light staw with a fine white head, very similar to the look of hoegaarden. Wonderful aroma for a wheat, citrus, yeast and wheat...doughy. This is definitely one of the most delicate American wheats. Spring water like crispness. Pretty sugary, subtle flavors, with a yeasty, un-malted wheat finish. A lemon might be just what this needs (which is always unfortunate to say...)

mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Goose Island 312 is a cloudy, light amber color with a lighter body than a standard wheat ale. Low bitterness, a smooth finish and a nice citrus aftertaste make this a refreshing beer.

decaturstevo (6131) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2008
An almost gold pour with a white head and lace. Aroma of light citrus and hints of paper. Very light malt with a hint of a pleasant bitter finish. A bit thin bur overall pretty good carbonation. Very good refreshing drinker that has a good finishing bitter and is pretty solid all round.

Bottle poured a hazy gold color with a decent whitish head that doesnt last long. Very mild aroma of citrus. Fruity ale flavor. Good sessional brew.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 Pours hazy with slight head. Taste is refreshing and flavorful for a wheat ale. If you like wheat ales, this is definitely a good one. This is better than blue moon, but Im not a big fan of wheat ales in general.
