Light straw colored liquid with a thin head. Somewhat hoppy aroma with some other esters. Mildly hoppy flavor. Largely overpowered by food. Texture light and crisp. cheap (5958) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Wheat magic, from Vermont. 12 oz twist off brown bottle, nice label. Ubiquitous pale yellow american beer color, has some streams of carbonation readily viewable. Aroma of mild floral hops. The initial taste is that of an ale, pale ale. I’ve tasted APA that is similar to this flavor. Mild hoppy citrus rind flavors that attack like any other pale ale. I’m not sure how they come up with this as being an American Wheat, I’m puzzled. Not too wheaty and there is not sludge on the bottom of the bottle. Something like Arcadia Whtsun or Southern Tier Hop Sun. These do not do much for the American Wheat style. If you are a hop lover I guess the hops in these brews make them more palatable for you. Except for the medium carbonation, I don’t find much anything like wheat in this brew. Finish is back of throat mild hops that are just ever so slightly bitter. A little disappointing for a wheat, though interesting and hoppy tasty. Boulder sweaty betty and Shiner Hefe are both much better than this as a wheat beer. I’ve tasted pale lagers that are more wheatlike than this.

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. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Smells somewhat like a sweaty ass. The taste is better. Not quite a drain pour but it is trying really hard. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2004

i thought magic hat would come up with a better wheat than this. i assumed it was an attempt at a wit as it was pale, slightly hazy, lightly lemony with some nasty traces of laundry detergent in the finish. thin and boring
bottle. Too bland of a beer. Taste is off balanced and has an odd spice to it. I guess it would go well with food on a hot day but i would pick others over this one. blinesam (235) - USA - APR 21, 2007
12oz bottle. Kinda gross, tastes like they are messing with the beer with the mix of the diffrent spices. Not a great wheat beer. jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Wow. Go figure, a light ale from Magic Hat. Nothing special, nothing to see here, folks, just keep moving along. Bread, sweetness, light hops and malt. Get your Bud friends over here if they want to drink an American-brewed light ale, I got a fridge full! Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Supposedly this beer is perfect for mowing grass. Tastes like what you would get if you fermented the contents of your lawn bag. Add a squirt of lemon and you have hocus pocus. Not a fan

Reviewed from old notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head.
The aroma had a light deep wheatiness that kinda covers up everything else no matter how many times I had this.
The taste was basically the same that comes across fairly bland.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a hard to put down sessionability - too much wheat perhaps.
Overall, uh...for me I’m not a fan, probably wouldn’t come back to.
