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.

Draft. Pretty decent beer. Aroma is sweet, and flavor is a little fruity. The only downside was that it felt a little watery.

Lightly sweet and golden with some citrus flavor and spice. Refreshing, but thin. Still a good American wheat.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 I am a wheat fan but only moderately fond of this brewer - and tend to be rather leery of American Wheat as a style. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale yellow color with only a trace of a white head that fades instantly. The aroma is faint malts and faint hops. The flavor is light malts and a hint of banana. A rather poor wheat.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle: Straw color, fairly clear, thin sudsy white head, fairly decent lacing, light carbonation.   Pale wheaty nose, slight citrus zing, seems semi-sweet, a little musty or barnish as well.   Sweet grass/straw on the tongue, tangy, minor sweetness, but falls off fairly quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Semi-sweet wheaty finish, but its fairly soft and subtle.   Clean, but not as big as its counterparts.   Needs more umph.   Thanks Dan!

Magic Hat is always on the verge of getting it right. This pale ale is...well...pale. It’s plain, light, nothing to get real excited about. About two dollars over-priced. And don’t be fooled by the self-description. This is not a wheat beer.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle and served in weizen glass: First bad news in that it pours crystal clear with a quickly fading fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma is light wheat and pale malt, some lemongrass and herbs, and a hint of DMS and buttery vapours. The taste is simple mild doughy malts with just a touch of fruity acidity and some diacetyl. The mouth feel is sprite and watery with a thin body. Yet another piss poor American Wheat Ale, pass.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle (12oz). And I promised myself no more goddam american wheat swill. Pale slightly hazy gold, decent bright white head. Aroma of light sweet grain and dried flower hops, a hint of fruit and yeast, but not much at all. Taste of light candy malt, a little sour grain, mild yeast and candied citrus fruit - sort of hard to swallow for some reason. Thickish, still body, sticky mouthfeel - weird, not awful, won’t have it again.

Pours a copper color with a decent off white head. Smells of wheat, lemons, hay, fresh cut grass. Tastes of lemons and chewable vitamins.
