Horny Goat Laka Laka Pineapple Hefeweizen


horny goat laka laka pineappleHorny Goat Brewing Company debuted their initial three brews in April 2009. Only a few years later, their portfolio and following has greatly expanded. Horny Goat is a fun and whimsical concept that produces serious and focused beers. One example is the summer seasonal Laka Laka Pineapple Hefeweizen.

The beer pours a very cloudy golden yellow color with reddish/orange hues when viewed in the light. The thin white head offers very little retention and a small amount of lacing around the edge of the glass. The carbonation is notable with large bubbles rising on the sides of the glass and tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

Aromas of sweet pineapple hit right off the bat and is quickly followed by candied sugar. A strong banana aroma follows on the heels of the pineapple and is highlighted by a touch of clove. A hearty wheat aroma is notable along with a touch of crisp malt.

The palate echoes the bouquet seamlessly. Fresh pineapple transitions to a sweet ripe banana note. The banana and pineapple tango together amidst the hefty wheat backbone. A touch of clove spice and crisp malts are also noticeable through the wheat and fruit. The pineapple notes are extremely fresh in nature due to the fact that the juice is added post fermentation.

A refreshing summer session brew that is likely to appeal to both the craft beer novice and expert alike! Try pairing this with your favorite goat cheese, pan seared scallops or banana pudding. 3 out of 5 Pints

The Beer Buyer Overall Rating: 3.0 Pints out of 5

  1. I was really tempted to try this last weekend but went with the Abita Seersucker Pils instead. I think I will try this with dinner; sounds like it would go well with these beer steamed clams: http://headoverbeers.wordpress.com/2014/06/24/beer-steamed-clams/
