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.

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: 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.

HogTownHarry (6566) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle (12oz). And I promised myself no more goddam american wheat swill. Pale slightly hazy gold, decent bright white head. Aroma of light sweet grain and dried flower hops, a hint of fruit and yeast, but not much at all. Taste of light candy malt, a little sour grain, mild yeast and candied citrus fruit - sort of hard to swallow for some reason. Thickish, still body, sticky mouthfeel - weird, not awful, won’t have it again.

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.

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

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.

TheBeerGod (6172) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Bottle from the Summer variety pack. Blond bodied with a small white head. Lemon zest, soft wheat and yeast make up the aroma. taste is lemony and tart with some yeast and hop bitterness and strong wheat notes. Body is light-medium and well carbonated. Dry in spots as well. Ends with more lemon, strong grains (wheat), and yeast with softer hops. Not too horrible, considering I hate American Wheats.

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...

JPDIPSO (6095) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 23, 2006
Straw color with a moderate, dense soft peak head. LIght sweet wheat aromas with only a hint of citrus peel in the background. Fairly full in feel, but gets watery in the end. Light malt and wheat mingle with a mild apple tartness. Quenching and light. This would be easy to drink on a hot summer night. Overall not a bad american wheat, even-though I still do not really understand the style.
