Goose Island "312 Urban Wheat Ale"
Goose Island Beer Company - Baldwinsville, NY USA
Wheat Ale (ABV 4.2%) (IBU 18)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2.5/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that steadily receded, down to a thin wispy film with a small collar and possessed fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a sweaty yeast with a note of citrus (lemon) and just a bit of spice (coriander I believe).

The taste was lightly sweet and citrusy throughout, progressing with a mild yeast presence and a lightly bitter spicy ending. The flavor however was short lived, fading from the taste buds in a matter of a minute or so, leaving behind mildly spicy bitterness which did not last much longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a creamy, dry texture and a carbonation that just surpassed medium in intensity.

Overall this was a decent Wheat Ale, tasty and refreshing with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Although I feel it could have had a stronger yeast presence to round it out…
