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.

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!

Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle: Crystal clear and mellowly yellow with a thin but withstanding head of white foam. Sweet aroma. The drink is syrupy sweet, with a twist of honey and even green tea ... very mellow drinker even for an Amerian wheat. (#2842, 5/6/2007)

12 oz bottle. Wow, this beer really isn’t good. Poured a light straw with a tiny head that disappeared so quickly I was lucky to see it at all. I’ve seen a better looking glassful of budweiser. Aroma is barely present, a little fruity. On the palate this was really thin a little fizzy, with really no discernable flavors. It was as if they took a decent wheat beer and filtered out all the flavor when they took out the yeast. I personally like something a little more substantial with wheat beers. Not recommended.

Gold color with a small white head. Toasty wheat, and a light caramel malt aroma. Wheaty, light citrus taste. Rather weak mouthfeel.

Not much here, a generous honey flavor which mixes in well, but still does not make up for the fact that nothing else is there.

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.

Overall Impression: Haven’t had this one for a for a while, but I remember it being a relatively average to below average Wheat Ale...

This beer I do not like. It says that it is nice and crisp, but I felt it to be dry and almost cardboard tasting. Magic Hat seems to be trying to hard to put out original beers. THis one, though it tastes different does not taste at all good in my humble opinion. Would only drink it again if I had no recourse.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a copper color with a decent off white head. Smells of wheat, lemons, hay, fresh cut grass. Tastes of lemons and chewable vitamins.

Slightly hazy golden colour with orange highlights and a dense white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with sweet scents and even a bit of malt...nothing wrong with the aroma. Light to medium-bodied; Sweet flavour with some grassy hop characteristics and a light malt finish. Mild aftertaste, only a bit of the sweetness shows through and leaves the mouthful fairly dry. Overall, one of my favourite Magic Hat beers, I don't like most of their other beers, so this was a welcome change. To comment on the style, if this wasn't classified as a Wheat, I would have no idea...this isn't even close to a normal Wheat style. This particular beer was brewed in November 2002. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.
