Our take on the classic summer wheat beer...its 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.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Light sweet citrus aroma. Light body with soft carbonation. Light sweet citrus flavor with a light bittersweet finish. Drinkable brew that was worth trying once.

Slightly hazy orange with quickly dissipating head. Sweet aroma, but also a bit of hoppy bite lurking. Taste is muted tartness, high-quality cardboard, and is fairly watery. Mild bitter/sour aftertaste.

Drake (12433) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle from a sampler. Pale straw color with a fizzy, fast dissolving 2-finger head. Wheat and slight grass aroma is very faint. Grassy, citrus taste. Fairly pleasant.

BeerandBlues2 (12326) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 24, 2006
12-oz. bottle courtesy of Ernest. Pours deep gold with orange hints, a medium to small frothy white head, somewhat diminishing, lined lacing. Aroma is honey and grainy malt, sweaty yeast and sweet warm dough. Mild sweet to start, honey and crisp malt flavor, medium bitterness, a citrus touch, finish is sort of dry. Light bodied, lively mouth foam that creates some creaminess. This would be exponentially better if I were outside sweating my ass off.

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2007
This beer is a clear golden color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing. Light aroma of wheat and citrus. Light-bodied and citrusy with some mild wheat and malt flavors. Clean, fruity finish with a touch of hops on the end. Clearly meant to be a lawnmower beer, but that is no excuse not to throw in a little more flavor.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2005
12oz bottle labeled best by the end of November. Poured a medium and hazy yellow color with a larger sized white head. Some small floaters. Aromas of yeast, lemons, and some wheat. Tastes of lemons, wheat, light yeast, and a touch of a honey sweetness to it. Thinner and somewhat lively body.

crossovert (11601) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
355ml bottle. Pale gold pour. This one is absolute water. In the bud light fashion, if you want an easy-drinkign summer thirst quencher wheat beer reach for an anderson valley gose.

Sammy (11375) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
A hoppy wheat beer. Some taste but rather ordinary. On-tap at the brewery. A bit of tastness, drinkable summer beer but bland.
