Poured into a snifter

A: Hazy gold. Almost no head or bubbles. Not much lacing.

S: Floral, wheaty

T: Smooth, sweet, light, refreshing. The wheat characteristics come though. A slight, hoppy finish.

M: Light to medium. Somwhat frothy.

O: Average, not too exciting. I hear it's better on draft. Sessionable.

Getting that 312 feeling. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

It's modestly cloudy with a somewhat paler yellow color in the body, only to be topped by a thick billowy white head which retains very well. Glops of lace hang around the glass as the beer level drops. The aroma smells almost like a spring day; there's a sweetness snap from crisp wheat, nicely played grasiness, and an edge of lemon.

312 Urban Wheat doesn't try to do too much. It's relatively simple, yet offers a great combination of refreshment and flavor while others of the style offer just the former. A snap of wheat hits and it brings along a lemon note too. Grass notes hit, and paired with the tight crisp carbonation makes for a great sensation.

It isn't often that I praise an American Pale Wheat Ale. With that in mind, it's even more impressive how I perceived 312 Urban Wheat. This is a definate pickup for warmer weather.
