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. It’s 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 aren’t enough beer, and cans fully protect the beer from light and oxygen, producing a new level of fresh that you won’t find out of a bottle. Cans are also easier to recycle and better for the environment... as an ecologist if you don’t believe the brainiacs at Horny Goat.

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.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Can. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a one finger white head that fades and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus, sweet tarts, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is the same as aroma with a hint of wheat and slightly hot alcohol. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild bitterness and a slightly tart finish. Decent.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2008
16oz can purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured a hazy light orange-yellow color. Head was rocky and white with decent retention, but not much lacing. Aroma was of bread dough, spices, and subdued citrus. Slightly sweet with an orange candy/orange soda note that dominated the flavor. There was also a white paper-y element and a hint of formaldehyde at the end. Not too good.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Can shared with kp prior to the tasting: Slightly hazed and a small head. The aroma has notes of orange peel, coriander, wheat, white wine grape, and medicinal. The taste is twangy and fruity with wheat and wet grains in the background, again a grapy finish and metallic as well. The mouth feel is lively and sprite, refreshing enough. Well it does not suck, would work at the beach.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2008
From can : Pours hazy orange with a finger and a half of white head, that has good retention. Nose of sweet fruits, wheat, orange peel, and some spices. Taste is sweet malts and some fruit, also spices and a hint of wheat. Finishes sweet, with a sweet aftertaste. Medium body that finishes think, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel.

CheersMate (1340) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Decent O.J. type coloring. Honestly this stuff looks like mildly translucent OJ, with a white head. I was a skeptic of this beer, but I went ahead and took the plunge. There is a nice thin layer of head sitting on top of my beer. This beer has a decent appearance, nothing too special, but also no complaints. The aroma is kind of weak. There are faint smells of wheat, and yeast. The aroma is not great by any means. A little coriander aroma. Still, the beer is nothing. There is a mild orange, wheat, and yeast taste. The flavor is bland, these flavors are not overpowering at all. The beer is sort of smooth, but not wheat ale/witbier smooth. The only thing saving this beer is the appearance and the half-decent flavor. Decent witbier, but I wouldn’t want to drink this stuff on a regular basis.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Sweet malty aroma with light yeaty spice and hints of leather. The flavor had a light malt taste and hmm. Lively carbonation.

LinusStick (3237) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2008
A very average wit. I love this style, though, so I may be a little biased with the rating. Aroma was so so. Orange peel and light malt. Pour was a hazy light gold with no head. Taste was light orange and a hint of coriander but too thick in the mouthfeel and not crisp or carbonated enough. Sweet finish. Blah.
