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.

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.

Was not creamy at all, as was suggested in the description. It was mild, and not too bitter from the hops. I wasnt able to assess the color, so Im basing my rating on the appearance of the bottle. It wasnt very strong which I particularly liked about the beer.

Much better than most "summer brews" out there. What sets this apart is that it is balanced...no aspect overwhelms the others. Balance gentlemen. Something that is missing from many craft beers these days.

A pale wheat ale. Hints of citrus. Drank cold and went down easy. A little hoppy on the back end but nothing that detracts from the taste. Would be refreshing on a hot summer day.
