Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat pours to a yellow/straw color with a faint nose that features grains and some fruity notes, mainly lemon. It body is a little cloudy and its white head of foam is slight in spite of the steady flow of bubbles from bottom to top.
This beer tastes about the way I expected, with a few surprises. It offers flavors of wheat malt, fruit, and some honey. The fruit is mainly citrus, but there is a certain banana- like character as well. The beer is crisp and refreshing, thanks in no small part to its steady carbonation.
Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat is a pretty good wheat beer overall and it seems like a great option during the hotter months of the year. The body of the beer is, admittedly, a little lighter than I usually prefer, but the lightness, crispness, and refreshing nature seem just right for a hot July afternoon.
This beer is certainly no classic and is not a perfect example of its style, but I like what it does offer and it is more than good enough to recommend. It’s a nice way to cool off and its lighter body and lower alcohol level make it a safer beer for everyday consumption.
