COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic summer wheat beer...itís a light, crisp ale for mowing lawns, hitting lazy fly balls and communing with nature. Glowing like brilliant rays of golden sun, its malty sweetness finishes tart and crisp. Hocus Pocus is best appreciated with a wedge of orange. Offered as a sacrifice to cloudless days.

Boring. Bland looking. Absent of the flavor that I have come to expect from a wheat beer. Thatís what you get when you send a girl on a beer run (but youíre still cool pam).

This was a wheat? Itís supposed to be unfiltered, but it tasted as if it was filtered like 8 times. The aroma was decent, but it was thin, and hinted to the overall thinness of this beer. The wheat characteristic were extremely subdued. There was no magic is this brew.

Simple uninteresting fruity brew that I would not get again!

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 1, 2001
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 Bottle: Clear yellow with some orange hues, quickly diminishing white head, light grass and grains in the aroma, watery body, starts and ends slightly sweet. Good for lawnmower beer.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 27, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 June 01: The great nose is really the best thing about this product from Vermontís ubiquitous brewer. After that itís downhill, but not so far that there isnít something to enjoy. Wheaty, slightly sweet, but disappears quickly and not really memorable. Try Paulaner instead! 8/4/5/3/11 3.1

May 05: 12 oz bottle. Fluffy, lasting white head topping an exceedingly clear light amber body (this has got to be filtered these days)...very light, honey-grassy nose, bit sour...bland sweet-sour creamy body, very little malt to keep it up, somewhat fruity-lemony...quite boring really though not defective in any way.

A quality American wheat ale.
