Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a medium sized thick white head. Aroma is wheaty with hints of mowed grass and lemon. Flavor is mostly wheat, with hints of wet grass and lemon lime citrus. Average at best.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fairly clear gold pour with a 1-2 finger white head, no retention and no lacing. Bland aroma despite the brewer’s claim. Fairly weak malt and slight hop bitterness on the toungue with a little citrus. Short and clean finish. Hefeweizen??? Not even close. This beer is filtered (or looks that way), has no clove or banana notes and misses the mark on every other hallmark of a hefe.

Bottle. A spice/herb/vegetable? I didn´t even know that this style existed! Read the commercial description.

Draught at the WBF in Raleigh. Nice white head, cloudy appearance, and citrus aroma. Almost more of a Belgian white to me, and then there’s this hoppiness that is unexpected. It’s not like magic hat to make anything true to style--kind of refreshing in a way.

12 oz bottle. Looks like a milkshake. Orange-yellow and completely opaque. Very citrusy aromas of lemon peel, lemongrass, some apple and pear. Pretty light on the hefeweizen character. Creamy texture which is good but all of the strong lemongrass flavour kills this for me. A bit grassy with moderate bitterness. Bready/yeasty finish.

Ah, leave it to magic hat to need this ridiculous disclaimer that they have no clue what they are making or how it can be reasonably marketed. The aroma has a lot of lemon hazelnuttiness wheat berm kernel. Ywllow towards orange, big off white head. tasty head, butty bready, less fruit than expected from aroma. sweetish light honeyed palate. better than expected but not great.

citrus, spruce, floral and fruity aroma.hazy, pale, white foam, frothy... not too good to look at. Very refreshing and goes down easy. An amazing summer beer after mowing lawn. Doesnt really have any strong taste....just refreshing

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden beer that got hazy when I swirl some of the yeast into the glass. Huge rocky white head. The nose was of lemon and grass and something vaguely chalky. Very refreshing after coming in from yard work. Lemon, orange rind, a spicy aspect that reminded me of corianger, some bubblegum and yeast. Smooth and chuggable. Not a traditional hefe (as Editor points out), but tastey nonetheless.
