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.

The pour is decent with a golden color like a cross between hay and maple syrup. The head foams up a bit, but nothing too great to speak of, leaving just a little trace a short time later around the sides of the beer glass. The aroma is somewhat grainy, lemony and sour, with something of a hint of the hops contained within. Initially, I had a hard time detecting the taste. Definitely is light bodied and doesn’t overkill you with taste. By the third try I was pretty much giving up on detecting any taste until about midway through when the hops kick in with an acidic, bitter taste. It left behind a slightly sour feel in my mouth. The carbonation level is a bit higher than what I like as well, which to me is usually an indicator that it’s trying to compensate for lack of taste with more bubbles. That is most certainly true here.

Odeur de miel. Couleur jaune doré. De petite particules se déposent au fond du verre. Mousse quasi absente qui disparaît rapidement. Très mince en bouche. L’amertume est présente à l’attaque mais disparaît en finale. (Achetée au magasin de Winooski).

Not a very exciting beer. If it is supposed to be a wheat beer, it is not very true to style. Being that it is filtered takes alot away from the beer. There is a bit of bitterness on the palate and not much on the nose. Not a very well structured beer.

Not too bad. It has some bitter hops mixed in, which distracted from the "fresh bread" flavor found in other wheat beers. Some lemony zests, but the overall flavor was watery and undefined. Drinkable, but not the best wheat brew my any means.

Not much of an aroma, appearance is a real pale straw color. Lemon/citrus makes its presence clear throughout this brew. A little bit of hops give it a bit of structure but it is kind of thin. Not good, not bad....a bit enjoyable.

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 won’t be doing this one again.

I’ve 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 you’re 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.
