COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Not much going on to talk about.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7161) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 I am a wheat fan but only moderately fond of this brewer - and tend to be rather leery of American Wheat as a style. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale yellow color with only a trace of a white head that fades instantly. The aroma is faint malts and faint hops. The flavor is light malts and a hint of banana. A rather poor wheat.

Lightly sweet and golden with some citrus flavor and spice. Refreshing, but thin. Still a good American wheat.

Magic Hat is always on the verge of getting it right. This pale ale is...well...pale. Its plain, light, nothing to get real excited about. About two dollars over-priced. And dont be fooled by the self-description. This is not a wheat beer.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle: Straw color, fairly clear, thin sudsy white head, fairly decent lacing, light carbonation. Pale wheaty nose, slight citrus zing, seems semi-sweet, a little musty or barnish as well. Sweet grass/straw on the tongue, tangy, minor sweetness, but falls off fairly quickly. Body and mouthfeel are average. Semi-sweet wheaty finish, but its fairly soft and subtle. Clean, but not as big as its counterparts. Needs more umph. Thanks Dan!

AirForceHops (6570) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 23, 2012
12 oz. bottle from mix 12 pack. Pours a slightly hazy gold. Nose is lots of wheat and grain. As it gets real warm I noticed a lot of honey aromas as well. The flavor is identical to the nose. I feel this is rated really harshly. Its a bit better than some ratings imply. Yes, it is simple and light bodied, yet really refreshing with decent flavor. This bottle was still in code, so still fresh. I have NO problem finishing the other bottles.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle and served in weizen glass: First bad news in that it pours crystal clear with a quickly fading fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma is light wheat and pale malt, some lemongrass and herbs, and a hint of DMS and buttery vapours. The taste is simple mild doughy malts with just a touch of fruity acidity and some diacetyl. The mouth feel is sprite and watery with a thin body. Yet another piss poor American Wheat Ale, pass.

Bottle Pours out a yellow topped with a white head. Aroma of wheat and malts. Tast of grain and a touch of hops at the end.
