COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic summer wheat beer...it’s 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.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of orange peel, wheat, toasted grain, and yeast. Taste mimics the nose with some grassy bitterness.

nakedwhendrunk (2184) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Reviewed from old notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head. The aroma had a light deep wheatiness that kinda covers up everything else no matter how many times I had this. The taste was basically the same that comes across fairly bland. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a hard to put down sessionability - too much wheat perhaps. Overall, uh...for me I’m not a fan, probably wouldn’t come back to.

Cakes (363) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2014
12 oz Bottle. Pours a hazy, crisp golden apricot color with a small white head. Nose is light honey, wheat, grains. Palate is crisp with a sticky finish. Flavors of grassy hops, wheat and grains, with a dry finish.

weihenweizen (1746) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear deep golden with two finger white head. Aroma is caramel malt/crisp hops, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is lots of caramel malt and crisp hop finish. Not very hoppy for an American wheat ale, wouldn’t go out of my way to revisit this.

crossovert (7443) - Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
355ml bottle. Pale gold pour. This one is absolute water. In the bud light fashion, if you want an easy-drinkign summer thirst quencher wheat beer reach for an anderson valley gose.

Had this on the fourth of July in variety pack. Very light wheat beer. Not a lot to write home about.

mtdewa1 (310) - rome, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is earthy and grass. Funky. Taste is watery, light wheat and grass. Some malt backbone. Ok easy drinking beer.

N3lson1 (201) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Drank from twelve ounce bottle. Great aromas of citrus and a hint of grassy aromas. A decent summer brew. Not high up on my list for Magic Hat.

Cybercat (3342) - Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow, some white head. Wheaty aroma ha yeast and lemon hints. Crisp, wheaty flavor has a sweet lemon (yes, sweet lemon!) underpinning. Texture has decent fizz and respectable viscosity. Good for taking the edge off a hot, humid Boston day.

Light. Crisp. Pretty dull. This is a beer for a hot day outside where you need more hydration than flavor.
