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.

This was my first American Wheat, and I hope I can muster enough confidence to try it again. This was citrusy and had a strong malt flavor. The appearance was more like an ale or lager. I wonít be doing this one again.

Iíve not been a big fan of wheat beers, but this one is mild enough I found it easy to drink. It started with a couple of fingers of head, but lost the head fairly quickly. A light gold color and fairly clear for a wheat, although there is a bit of cloudiness to it. Mild aroma of wheat with a bit of hops citrus. The mouthfeel is pretty light but the taste was better than the aroma led me to believe it would be. Aftertaste is bitterness.This will never be confused with the bigger heavier beers, but when youíre in the mood for something other than a heavy beer, this works. This might also make a nice gateway beer into the world of craft beers.

Why is everyone picking on this beer? Let it be what it is. It is a refreshing lighter colored summer beer. It is perfect for lazy hot days. Just a damn good all around summer beer.

2005 batch--commercial description (on bottom of 6-pack) no longer contains the words "unfiltered, like life itself". Itís clearly filtered, a crystal pale amber, yellow really. Spare white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is that of a classic wheat beer, with citrus and lageresque dull malt. Finishes lemony. Disappointing from the bottle; I bet it tastes much better on tap. And I wonder why they started filtering it?

Minimal Head. Nice appearance although more clear than most wheat beeers. Taste was watery, did not taste like a typical weissen. Easy drinking beer for the summer, would not have it again

The color of this beer is "classic" amber. Nice and clear, looks refreshing, and light, but dark enough. Has a faint aroma that is grassy. Flavor is like a watered-down store bought lemonade mix. I guess the bee on the label means honey, but this tastes more like flowers that bees visit rather than honey. All the flavors are faint. Has a dry, lingering woody finish on the back of the palate.

Clear, golden color and half an inch of white head. Only a distant lemon smell for an aroma. Strong grassy taste, which mixes poorly with the disjointed citrus notes that surface occasionally A tart, vaguely palate with an unpleasantly syrupy mead-like mouthfeel. Aftertaste like having sucked on a lemon... or a nine-volt battery. Needs some work.

Wheat session beer. Perhaps is better with that wedge of Orange like they say but Iím not personally a fan of disguising the beer with overwhelming flavors and it doesnít seem necessary for many wheats Iíve had contrary to what some individuals will claim. My least favorite of the Magic Hat offerings Iíve tried so far.
