312 Urban Wheat brewed by Goose Island Beer Co. This brew pours out a cloudy amber color with a small white head. This is an unfiltered brew like most wheat beers. Keep in mind, this brew has an abv of 4.2. The smell is citrus and beer. This brew has the smell of most wheat brews on the market. The taste is bitter at first but smooth at the end. I like how it is different from most wheat brews on the market. 312 Urban Wheat is a clean and fresh and smooth brew. The mouthfeel is is nice at the end. There is nothing bad about this brew. Overall I giving this brew a 4 out 5 I feel this is a good wheat brew to try out. I would get get this brew again.

BOD 11/23/13. Fairly clear light golden pour with a good head. Well formed lacing and moderate retention. Light nose of lemon with a hint of banana over a touch of clove against a light biscuit sweetness. Light medium body that is smooth. Normal carbonation level with good effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is laid back and a bit weak. Some light tart lemon flavor is predominant with only hints of clove. The finish is clean and somewhat crisp.

On-tap at the local BWW. Pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow color with a slight bubbly white head. The aroma is weak with grains, wheat, and citrus. The taste is smooth, with a mild grassy grain taste. Not a bad lighter craft brew but really lacks depth in the taste.

312 Urban Wheat was in a Craft 12 pack. It has a nice pale yellow colour.
A decent 2" foam head. Fluffy and light like Marshmallow Fluff!
The taste is sweet.. if you've ever shucked a few wheat kernels, the smell would be spot on for that memory from the past. This is a nice Wheat, not the best, but pleasant. As part of a variety pairing from a 12, it's ok.. I wouldn't order this in a restaurant, though. .. Maybe too many Hop intense beers have spoiled the more airy wheat offerings.. Tastes Change, though.. If you like wheat ale, you will enjoy this entry.

Also sampled last night on 5/20/14, though I have had it on draught here locally a couple of months ago as well as from a bottle about 18 months ago. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a .3L 'Dinkel Acker' glass boot.

Pours a hazy straw-yellow with a 1-finger fizzy white head that has some spotty lacing when sipped. The aroma is of sweet malt and wheat. Very nice. Taste was very pleasant with just the right amount of carbonation and just like a good wheat ale should taste. Also has a hint of light lemon and orange . Very easy to drink! I would get this one again.
