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.

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.

Aroma - Fresh baked bread with moderately light citrusy hops - grapefruit / plumello. Mild fruity esters. Appearance - Pale Yellow, hazy clarity with moderately high carbonation. White, persistant head. Taste - Fresh baked bread with grapefruit and floral hop flavor. Moderate bitterness to balance the malt. FInishes mostly clean with some lingering bitterness and cirtrus in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel - Light bodied and well carbonated with a clean finish. Overall - Crisp and refreshing. A good summer beer which would be well paired with grilled fish and mild spices.

Light orange-gold with a hint of wispy head. A berry aroma (elderberry, I?m sure) but also with some wheat. Aroma is almost misleading - not much of a berry flavor, almost citrusy, rather. Finishes fizzy, a bit floral, but very light. Makes me think of sunshine. Very much a summer beer.

Though the overall ratings are bit mediocre, I for one, love this beer. Very smooth and delicious. The perfect summertime, BBQ partner. Not something however I would want to drink in a dark, smokey bar with friends. Cant explain the distinction. Try it and you will see what I mean.

Great summer beer. Light flavor, not overpowering. Could drink this all day sitting on my deck. I had this from the sampler pack and bought a case a week later. Great beer.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 Crisp, light, citrussy. Not very flavorful for a summer ale. Aroma is almost unpleasant.

Good Sunday beer, nice aroma, I use it to make a mop sauce for when I smoke a brisket.

Yet another 6 on my Random 12 BCS. Sorry wheat fans, my mouth and brain shut down with the introduction of a wheat beer.

I was looking forward to tasting this summer wheat beer. It pours clear and golden with a slight floral wheaty aroma. It has a thin white head that retains its small character throughout drinking. Very light and dry hopped. Tasted like a watered down Circus Boy minus any lemony character. There is nothing magical about Hocus Pocus.
