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.

One pint can. The innuendos didnít hit me at first, sure "horny goat", but on the box we get this: "cans...the bigger the better!" and "why choose our BIG cans?" Letís not forget on the can" "horny goat loves big cans." By the way, a can can sometimes mean an ass, or butt, or tuchus, or booty, in the contemporary vernacular. The cartoon goat also has a constant leer. íCause heís horny. Alright, letís drink íer. Into a Blue Moon glass, just for fun. With no orange. Huge fizz and carbonation, lightly hazed yellow appearance, huge head, leaving lace. Sweet, perfumey aroma, light spice, pronounced lemon, some orange. Nice enough. Could be fresher and brighter. In the mouth, smooth and slick...brisk and citric. Flavor swims in the mouth for a moment, then disappears. Seems like this is made for those who think Blue Moon is too thick. And then, the lemon spikes the palate with a palpable hit. Not especially pleasant...Lays flat and just putzes out at the end. Sticks in the mouth, a messy lemony...bleh...Thatíll do. I had two cans the other day when I was fairly drunk, and didnít think it sucked. Just not terribly good. Now that my mind is in better command, Iím less charitable. Paid $5.49 for a 4 pack. Iíve got to be more careful with my money... Donít settle, folks. Say no to horny goats.

I know City Brewery when I see it, and this is no exception. 16oz can, no date. Hazy amber golden with a small off-white sorta creamy and quickly fading to a tattered film. Artificial orange and powdered sugar dominate what little aroma is there, and there is some corn and old wheat in the background. Only hints of orange present in the flavor, and plenty of flavorlessness. Thereís also a bit of stale wheat, and almost paper oxidation (very very faint). Dirty (not earthy) bitter finish that peaks at a 2. Burps orange candy (without the sweetness). Light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Officially the flavor got a 3.5,so I rounded up. Yes, this pretty well sucks. Traders beware! Iíve got a nice bonus for you!

From a can, Raleigh WBF. Iím reading my review, and i notice it just stops right in the middle. I was sober when I drank this, so I can only assume that this beer was not capable of holding my interest long enough to even scribble a few notes.

Weak beef. This is a watered down version of Blue Moon. Imagine if you added ice to a Blue Moon and forgot about it for 30 min, this would be the result.

Had this one canned in Stevens Point, Wisconsin; thanks Slothgar! Hazy, dark yellow pour with a nice thick and foamy off white head, light malty and ctrusy nose, refreshing limey taste, a bit of baked bread, some spice. Light, soft finish. Actually, very good, especially out of a can.

had it at a beer festival - pretty typical belgian-white; nothing too special

Courtesy of Degarth. Can pours gold with light haze and bright white firm head. The aroma is a bit fresh and peppy to start with lemon zest, wheat, some honey sweetness and then alcohol from possibly too hot of a fermentation. The taste starts lemony fresh and that freshness gets crushed by wheat, honey and then chemical fusels that take the experience into a region we donít really want to go.

From a 24 oz. can purchased at the local Co-Op. The body is cloudy light straw with a white head. The aroma is light banana and clove. The taste is the expected weakly clove spiced banana. There is a little bit of the orange peel. An ok wit for the price and being canned.

This is the Budweiser of witbiers. Not awful, but really thin in flavor and lacking any real character.

Cloudy yellow color. Skunky wheat aroma with faint citrus notes. Very watery body with faint metallic flavor.
