COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Horny Goat Wheat is a Belgian-Style white beer, craft brewed with wheat, malted barley, hops and a bit of orange peel and coriander. Itís natural haze from yeast and wheat make it a classic to be enjoyed on its own, or with a slice of orange. Horny Goat Wheat loves big cans... those little 12 ounce bottles arenít enough beer, and cans fully protect the beer from light and oxygen, producing a new level of fresh that you wonít find out of a bottle. Cans are also easier to recycle and better for the environment... as an ecologist if you donít believe the brainiacs at Horny Goat.

Bleh. Tastes like seltzer water. Barely any taste and extremely fizzy. Their other brews are way better so donít think they are all bad though.

No bottle information.
Appearance: This is a very bad looking beer for the style. Not only is it crystal clear but it leans more of an orange than a pale straw. The head is also lacking very much with only a thin white head that is short lived. I donít know what they did wrong, but this doesnít resemble a witbier at all.
Aroma: The aroma is funky here, reminding me a lot of hairspray, or is it hair gel? Iím not sure. Thereís some bitter citrus, but this smells of chemicals. Iím actually scared to drink this.
Taste: Tart from the start, this gets pretty tart by the finish on the first sip. On the second it resembles biting into a bitter orange. The flavor isnít near as bad as the aroma, but itís way off for the style.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, ample carbonation.
Overall: This is bad. There is no mistaking this as being good by anyone, that is unless theyíve never had a decent witbier ever. Pass on this, run far away.

Cakes (358) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Cloudy witbier yellow a thin white head. Aroma of coriander, yeast and toasted malt. Taste of coriander, lemon and toasted malt. Flavors overwhelmed by the heavy, fizzy carbonation . Finishes up dry. This tastes like an "experimental" beer that should not have gone to the market.

D_Love (4) - - APR 21, 2012 does not count
Poured from a bottle to a pint nice head amber color Smells tart, spicy very complex Taste is amazing. Very yeast dominated tartness gives way to the orange and corriander High carbonatoin fits well I really loved this beer. Extremely complex refreshing

LetsGoState (580) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Appearance is a medium white head with a hazy orange color. Aroma is some wheat and citrus. Taste was mostly all wheat, but pretty bland. Overall not a great example of the style.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2012
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a smooth lemony banana with light cloves. In mouth, a rather chalky example of a wit with some light acidic points, banana malt, a bit short. On tap at the Istmus Beer and Cheese, Jan 21 2012.

It has the spices and fruit of a witbier, relatively thin in flavor and body though. Passable.

burg326 (3575) - Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2011
12 ounce bottle, that poured a dark hazy yellow with a thick white head. aromas of slight citrus, some spicy clove and a touch of banana. Taste follows the aroma, and one doesnít overpower each other with a side of bread. A decent wheat bear.
