Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale

This 4.2% ABV unfiltered wheat beer is from the Goose Island Beer Company of Chicago, Illinois. The beer takes its name from the area code for Chicago. Now that GI is owned by AB-InBev, this beer is brewed in Baldwinsville, New York and Fort Collins, Colorado.

The beer pours golden in color with a touch of haze. There is an inch of white, foamy head that bubbles down at a moderate pace. The aroma is toasted wheat, grain, with a touch of citrus and a light mineral tang. The taste follows the aromas directly, but they are a bit deeper, more toast in the wheat, more tang and fruit in the citrus, and with a grassy and fairly bitter dry finish. The beer drinks crisp, carbonated and refreshing. This is a nice, tasty pounding beer.
