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).

Barreras (971) - 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.

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.

This is a GREAT summer beer. Pair this with a lemon, and you’ve got yourself a treat. Very refreshing. Just the right amount of carbonation.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of wheat, grass, citrus and bread. Taste is the wheat and a bit of spice and yeast.

Drank from 12oz bottle. Nothing special or different about this beer. Very light and unflavorful. Nothing sets it apart or makes it interesting. --you've been Dubbed.

adnielsen (9016) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle in Minneapolis picked up in Minneapolis. Pours a clear, golden orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly spicy, grassy, light banana, lemon, a bit zesty aroma. Somewhat floral/soapy, lemongrass, herbal flavor. Bleh.

BeerandBlues2 (9597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle @ home. Pours lightly hazy dark gold with a small, tight-bubbled white head, short retention with rapid succession to the glass edge, and spare lacing. Aroma is grainy and earthy wheat malt, spicy notes with lemongrass character. Flavor is spicy, light hops and bitterness, with supporting malt and a dry, crisp finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 26, 2013
VEry aromatic like a weizen but the flavour was something sitll missing. Perhaps some cloves more needed.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow with minimal head and lacing. Aroma of German yeast and wheat, with overlying grassy notes. Taste is sweet citrus, grass, and wheat, no real yeast. This is mediocre at best, but easy to drink I suppose.

This has a bit of lemon and orange fruitiness to it but also a quite strong wheat body. The tingle from the carbonation gives is a strange mouthfeel. Couldn’t drink it all. Knowing now that it has lemongrass basically fits my description...and I’ve yet to have a beer with lemongrass that made me want to have another.
