COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Magic Hat Brewing Co. Elixirs Find... Brewery Tour Now Playing Shop Peep Show Get Social About Us Home Blog Circus Boy — THE Hefeweizen Unfiltered and unfettered, Circus Boy is a unique and refreshing American-style Hefeweizen. Is he a who? Or a what? Or perhaps some of both? Be amazed by the flavorful haze of this wonderful wheat beer.

Editor’s note: Yes, the bottle calls it a hefeweizen. The beer, however, is brewed with a (fairly hefty) portion of lemongrass, which contributes a significant aroma and flavor. Thus we have deemed it a Spice/herb/vegetable and not a German Hefeweizen, which should be free from adjuncts (other than hops).

Poured from bottle. This head which dissipated quickly. Hazy banana color. Citrus, slightly peppery aroma. Taste is bland for the style. Disappointing. Light for the class and not full bodied.

Thin and sweet. The citrus flavor is just barely too much. Darker yellow in color, very slight cloudy appearance. Not a hefeweizen at all. more of a citrus flavored lager taste, with just enough wheat to be noticed.

Cakes (358) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2013
12 oz bottle. Starts with a nice floral aroma. Strong citrus flavor and without the "fizz" of many Hefeweizens, Pours a cloudy yellow and does taste a bit of yeast.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - AUG 20, 2013
A light yellow, slightly cloudy with a white head. Not a lot of aroma but poppy. It needs more body.

lesifflebiere (1201) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Boisson blonde légèrement voilée, avec très peu de mousse ; agrumes et céréales en nez. Très douce en bouche, elle possède une effervescence contenue comme prévu. Saveurs de bananes, d'agrumes peu acidulées et de céréales. Bonne bière d'été, le style n'est pas tout à fait correct mais ses défauts, banals, sont bien contrebalancés par ses qualités. Agréable et savoureuse.

Very citrusy aroma and taste. A little too much so for my taste. Not really a heffewiezen if you ask me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barreras (940) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a bubbly foam on top. Aroma is of subtle lemongrass. Taste clean and crisp but too watery for me. A refeshing beer, that has a slight citurs aftertaste.

bkurtz (728) - PERU - JUL 6, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with a typical Hefeweizen head. Some citrus aroma and wheat malts. Smooth taste, nothing special, but decent. I prefer Belgian witbiers.
