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.

Sampled at Cellarís Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN and shared by joebrew. From a 24-oz "silo" pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a thin white ring. Aroma of corn malt, some citrus zest, and a touch of dried pine cone. Taste is light to medium bodied, well-carbonated with a semi-sweet corn malt and flowery hop flavor. Finish is quite gritty, slightly metallic with a corn husk aftertaste that does not sit well. Almost a cargo train wreck!

Straight from the 24 oz can to a glass, and I should have just passed. Great name terrible beer. Not much more to say, but it is bad. Not rancid, but yucky nonetheless.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Tasted just like a white wine. Really did not enjoy this beer. Did like the fact it was unfiltered with yeast floating in it.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Tasted of grain, wheat, slight hop bitterness. Nothing special about this beer but it did go down smooth. I did like how there was sedement which I believe adds to the quality and taste of a beer. Decent beer all around.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2007

Hangover (1063) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Murky golden pour with virtually no head. Slight citrus aroma with some yeast and coriander. Thin body. Taste has a lot more yeast. More of a malt profile than I would expect from a wit. Needs more citrus bite, honestly itís a bit bland.

ChainGangGuy (4399) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, pale golden body with a thin, wispy white head. Smell: Altogether weak aroma of wheat, coriander, and lemon juice. Taste: The taste is a fairly bland blending of flavors; some wheat and grains, pinch of spice, hint of a citrus, and a bit of yeast. Thatís all there is to it. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A "donít call me, Iíll call you" kind of witbier.

16 oz can sample from my distributor. Faint aroma of sweet wheat and spice. Just a wisp of orange peel and yeast. Pours cloudy gold with a fairly fluffy white head. Flavor is fairly nondescript, but not offensive. Some malted barley notes with dry yeast and a bit of sweet wheat. The smallest trace of the orange and coriander. Not bad, just not a lot going on.
