Okay, let me say that I absolutely hate what happened to Goose Island. However, I completely understand from a business perspective that at some point you need to make some $.

That being said I am glad that their stuff is now being a little more widely distributed. The 312 Urban Wheat is a good beer in its class. The only draw back is you have to swig it quick or it does get a little funky on the end.

I do hope they continue to put out good product without compromising during the process. Great beer for the desert heat and make sure to serve COLD!

So excited that GI is distributed here now. Stopped by First Street for a pint of this after work. Poured into a tall 312 weizen glass.

A murky pale gold with a small white head on top. Good retention and decent spotty lace left behind. The nose is sweet and bready. Honey biscuits, grains, and a kiss of lemon zest.

Creamy feel. Good carbonation smack on the finish. Wheat, straw, mild spices, pale citrus, apple. A simple tasty beer. I couldn't see myself having multiples of these at a time, but a decent refreshing beer anyways.

A- Hazy gold with a white head. Minimal lacing, but head retention is nice.

S- grainy, with hints of banana and citrus.

T- Pretty light. Wheat with some tart citrus. The finish shows some floral hops with a very light bitterness.

M- It's light and easy drinking with crisp carbonation.

O- Eh, not overly impressed with this one.
