3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

Great seasonal - makes summer much more enjoyable. Citrus and wheat make their presence known, bottled good alternative but well worth the trip if in the area to buy a growler from the brewery - over the top.
