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.

Tmoney99 (10666) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Can from Mellow Mushroom (Chattanooga). Poured hazy yellow color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable but only worth having once.

Lubiere (9999) - 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.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Taco Mac strikes again! Cloudy yellowish/gold color. Typical aroma of wheat and orangewith some light spice. Flavor is boring and really not that good. Seems hard to fuck up a wheat, but so many breweries do.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2009
16 ounce can from the Libation Station in Johnson City, TN. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a large head. Fizzy with poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread, green apple, apricot and other fruits. Taste is bread, citrus, green apple. Thin bodied. Hardly any spice or yeasty notes that make a good wit but not offensive either.

Water + American Wheat Beer = really really bad combo. They seem to have mixed the two.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2008
16oz can. Poured clear bright golden with about 1" of initial white head.. lots of rising carbonation. The aroma wasn’t bad with maize and banana sweetness accented by white pepper and a little orange zest.. sweet overall. The flavor was quite similar with sweet honey and pale malts at the core.. mild tangy wheat and orange zest at the edges.. picked up some dry peppery spicage for the finish.. just a touch sour right at the back. Lighter-bodied with a bit of syrupy texture on the palate.. not quite dry enough at the finish.. tangy tartness was close to metallic, but maintained its air of refreshment. Much better than it rates.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2008
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 don’t really want to go.

BBB63 (6045) - 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.
