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 great wheat beer, cloudy gold in color like a good wheat should, pair well with any citrus if desire, and a presidential favorite. Top ten in best wheat beer in my opinon

Light lemon aroma. Light haze with bright yellow color. Foams to a one finger that settles to thick but thin head.Lots of bubble action can be seen. Mild zesty lemon softened with a hint of bread flavor. Some sourness but you have to pay attention to notice. Refreshing and zesty feel to it but balanced with a soft finish. Superb for this style.

Had this one bottled. Somewhat cloudy dark yellow color, thick head, nose of hops and bread, clean tastes of grapefruit, very, very good wheat beer.

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 theyve 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, theres a subtle hint of hops, just a little sweetness, and nice lingering finish. This is the first time Ive had the Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat ale, and Im 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.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2012 As one who grew up in the 312, back when the 312 was not just Chicago, I really enjoy this brew. A nice chrisp and easy drinking wheat ale. Especially great on a summer day.

A solid wheat ale. It has a lemony flavor to it on its own (I dont like to squeeze fruit juices in my wheat ales as a rule), nice head and lacing. It pours hazy golden. The aroma is mostly of lemon - I couldnt smell anything like wheat, though. Nice carbonation and refreashing, cleansing, dry aftertaste. Not watery at all, rather it has a good medium-bodied mouthfeel.

Always a favorite when I am in Chicago, just enjoyed a few in Missouri as I waited out the snow storm of 2011. I wish i could get it in Miami

Many thanks to LibrarianGirls buddy, Laurie, for bringing this brew back from a road trip to Chicago. Bottled on: 05/16/11. Appearance: Pours a hazed, pale straw-colored body with an airy, white head that collapses at a moderate pace. Smell: Light malty notes, a light kiss of sweet lemon, and a faint, faint hint of underlying graininess. Taste: Begins with a gentle maltiness of delicately malted barley and wheat. Lightly sweet with a hint of honey water. A noted fruity, faintly tart citrusy hop presence. Low bitterness. Small shred of yeastiness. Drying on the lively, wheat-flavored finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly soft mouthfeel. Overall: Its an APWA alright, though thankfully not as cheerless and lifeless as some, and, after going out rowing for the afternoon, it really provides for some substantial refreshment.
