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.

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 Johnís 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 (5741) - 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 (384) - 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 (1299) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, 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 wouldnít 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.

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.

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2008
16 oz cans? No way is this a belgian wheat. Processed beer aroma. Slight haze to an otherwise ubiquitous colored beer. Strongish wine flavors. Wheaty but not fantastically wheaty. Creamy head. Weird mouth coat. Just like melanie, isnít it? Malt liquor finish. rather rude for a belgian, nudge, nudge, wheat. Did not find much if any sludge on the bottom of this one.

16oz. Cans... Donít drink this out of the can! If you know how to pour/drink a Hefeweizen or a Witbier correctly than you would know that you want that sediment at the bottom. The correct way is to pour 2/3 of it into a glass and swish the remaining 1/3 around sufficiently then pour it into the glass and watch the Witbier light up like a yeast blizzard... I found this technique to make this beer quite more enjoyable. I also would like to know the alcohol content of this beer as it seems to be quite high and thats a good Belgian tradition i might add. I took a sip right after cracking the can and it was harsh and had a very prominent aluminum and orange peel flavor (like the taste you get when you eat an un-skinned orange like an apple with pocket change in your mouth, haha) I promise it reveals the qualities and cloudiness of a true Witbier when poured correctly into a glass!
