The Goose is Loose in Connecticut, finally! My salesmen have been taunting me with the Goose Island beers for over a year now, and as of May 1st they’ve finally been released. Just today we received our first shipment which included this little gem, the 312 Urban Wheat Ale.
Despite its appearance in the picture, the 312 pours a light straw shade of yellow, with a bright white one finger foam on top. As the foam recedes, a small amount of lacing remains.On the nose, the 312 is a light crisp combination of malts, wheat, citrus, and just a touch of soft hops.
The Goose 312 drinks somewhere between a crisp summer ale and a soft American wheat ale. The body is light and easy drinking, there’s a subtle hint of hops, just a little sweetness, and nice lingering finish.
This is the first time I’ve had the Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat ale, and I’m definitely a fan. Where I come from we do our best to keep the freezer full of geese, but now that Goose Island is available in Connecticut, the hunt is going to be a lot easier.
Meh. Pours a somewhat hazy Golden with less than an oh of head. A tad of citrus and fruit on top of the sweet malts. Smooth.

Can. Pours golden with just a bit of white foam that is gone fast. Nose has some wet cardboard, wheat sour notes and basically just feels like a usual Japanese macro... Taste shows some more hops, not too sweet and actually finishing dry. Nevertheless, feel pretty bland and watery, not that enjoyable. Was expecting more. Paddycairns (76) - - NOV 5, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Pours light yellow, with small to no head. Aroma is a little sweet honey and wheat, but not much else little dull. Taste is sweet not much body but medium malt. Pretty poor compared to some other wheat beers
