Can into pint glass. Pours a hazy straw color with a modest off-white head. Initial impression is lemon, bready malt, and a touch of slightly bitter floral hops. Mouthfeel is clean and refershing. Finish is dry and slightly bitter.
I thought I was going to be drinking an IPA, so the wheat was a surprise (note to self: try to actually read what's on the can next time). So maybe my palate was primed for an IPA, but I honestly didn't find 312 Urban Wheat too enjoyable.

The look is a hazy yellow that has one finger of fluffy white foam, that after a minute settles to just a thin layer. It looks like plenty of small bubble carbonation. Most of it ascends from the middle of the pint glass.
The smell is light malt, very slight hops, with a bit of lemon.
The taste is simple, malt, wheat, and a bit of lemon, very tasty.
The feel is almost creamy, maybe because of the smaller bubbles, yet it has a nice crisp finish.
This one went down way to fast, it tastes good, very easy to drink(smooth). I may need to pick up a few for March Madness.

Hazy straw yellow with a modest head. Wheaty nose. Light wheat body with a decent crispness. Basic and tasty.

Pours a hazy orange that turns a light-bulb beyond into a dull hot circle, much like the sun on a lightly clouded dad. Head is a finger in height and stark-white in color. Aroma is wheat, barley, straw malts out front with herbal, floral, and leafy hops mingled between. There is a light citrus rind at the finish. Flavor profile is straw, barley, wheat, bready, earthy and nutty malts and floraly, leafy and citrusy hops. It's rich in full terms of the broadness of its notes, while still retaining balance and not overloading the palate. Mouth feel is a touch effervescent, but stills out on the palate. It has a medium thickness. Together, it forms a lightly crisp, but certainly refreshing, texture. Overall, big malts and fair hops keep this beer drinking smooth and balanced, especially considering the ABV.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 12oz bottle.

Wheat ale. 12 oz bottle poured into weizen glass. Looks cloudy, brownish orange. Medium head, short retention, almost no lacing, small film on top after head leaves. Looks like a basic wheat ale.
Smell: lemongrass, wheat, bready malt, small hop note at the end. Basic wheat beer. Strong lemon citrus smell (somewhat like Circus Boy by Magic Hat).
Taste: souring lemon, good bready malt, finishes light citus and hop. Not bad.
Feel: medium body, low-mid carbonation. Usual for the style I think they are going for.
Overall: not a bad beer. Does not quite warrant a $11 6 pack price, but I would buy again (and probably will). Not a bad sort of Hefeweizen “urban wheat” ale. I would definitely drink again. If you like Circus Boy by Magic Hat, you will like this better.

On tap. Hazy golden color with a finger of white head. Grass and citrus smell. Medium feel. Tastes of bready malt and lemon. Decent, if not terribly complex

Bought at a Trader Joe’s in Chicago.
Look is just like the bottle says, hazy lemon and bright.
Smell is strong in the citrus aspect.
Taste is clean and crisp.
Feel is refreshing.
Overall I’m a fan, would drink again.
