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.

Pinball (12156) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 4, 2011
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard very clear yellow, smooth large white head with a yellow tone. fresh flowery hoppy aroma, slightly dusty, notes of peaches quite delicate and pretty pleasing flowery aroma. flavor is flowery, very slightly hoppy bitter, slightrly fruity and wheaty. Very mild and probably also a bit boring wheat beer - i prefer the german and belgian versions of wheat beer to this. However it is quite refreshing and very easy to drink, almost like a lemon soda water, or a radler. second pour was not entirely clear, but still it’s one of the most clear berws i ever saw , that claims to be unfiltered.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
0.33l bottle @ Biskopen. Pours a light semi hazy yellow - almost lemonade-like body with a thin quickly fading white head. Aromas are really low, but there are hints of yeast, wheat and something sour that I can’t figure out what is (could it be sour cardboard perhaps?). The body is as light and watery as is looks and the carbonation is lively as hell. Tastes blend and watery. Notes of banana, yeast and perhaps some clove, but the (too) lively carbonation and watery body made this a boring experience.

There aren’t too many Wheat Ales I don’t like, but this one is a refreshing beer that is just an easy going drink.

Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale is a cloudy, pale straw colored beer with a thin white head that fades to film and leaves decent lacing on the glass. There’s not much aroma, just a faint metallic whiff and a note of lemon. It has a very Lively light body with a crisp, dry finish. There’s not much flavor; a little wheat with a hint of grassy bitterness. It has good balance. This is like doing it in a canoe, so it goes down quite easily. It has no faults.

Wow somehow I hadn’t rated this yet....and perfect timing with the new AB buyout! 12 oz bottle. Pours a light slightly hazy yellow orange with a small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and lightly citric, a bit bready with a touch of honey sweetness. Flavor starts light and sweet with some bits of orange zest, some wheat and a soft fruit note. Finishes a bit on the grainy bread side. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Eh, it’s a pretty standard middle of the road American wheat

On tap at BW3 into a 16oz plastic cup, way to keep it classy...A light hazy gold with a decent white head, good retention...The aroma is light wheat, slightly skunky. The taste is boring as heck, skunky bite to it, light sweet wheat. Not sure why people think this is a good, a small step above a macro.

Pours a light pale clear yellow color with a full white head. Smells of lemon, grass, and some light yeast. Initially, a bit of the hops come through giving way to some decent grainy flavors. The finish is really short. Overall, it’s a very simplistic beer.
