3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Thaichile. I agree with hopscotch on this, much more like an American wheat than Hefe. A bit spicey in aroma, some citrus and definite wheat malt. A hazy golden color with a modest white head. Some lacing. Light bodied, somewhat dry. Decent wheat malt flavor, some tangy citrus and perhaps a hint of clove. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy, yellow ale with a small, frothy, white head. The aroma is citrusy and yeasty, but I’m not picking up the spices. Any spicy esters or lemongrass is subtle, not flashy. Tangy, well-bittered flavor with lemon and grapefruit. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp, fruity and lightly bitter. More like an American wheat than hefeweizen to me. Nice and refreshing!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white bubbly head that went away rather quickly. Aroma of lemon, grass, wheat, some vanilla and light banana. Flavor is all lemon at first, almost along the lines of a lemonade. As the lemon balances out some cereal comes through then finishes slightly dry. Carbonation comes in on the tongue but then balances out to a slightly lighter easy drinking beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Troy for sharing this at the gathering. Pours a light mostly clear golden (very light for style) and a thin white head no lace. Aroma is a bit phenolic - cloves and a bit of vanilla, with only slight banana esters. Light wheaty flavor mixed with cereal and grain, and a touch of citrusy lemon in the finish.. Light spritzy carbonation and light on the palate. Easy drinking beer but nothing complex and really not a good example of a hefe even though it is listed as a spiced.

Brewery. Pour was a cloudy straw yellow color with a big white head. Mostly lemongrass in the aroma with some weird staleness. The flavors leaned a little too much toward the stale side (which is how I percieve a lot of german and czech hops). Still a good bit of lemongrass also but really not very enjoyable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz. bottle. Hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Sour, citrusy aroma with some baby vomit in the background. Not totally vile like adult vomit, but kind of a lactic sourness you get when a baby hurls. As much as I didn’t like the aroma, at least this is the first Magic Hat beer I’ve tried that didn’t smell like butterscotch so I am thankful for that. After getting past the aroma, the flavor wasn’t all that awful. Tart lemons, grass and perhaps coriander? I am 0-4 with this brewery so far.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice start, uneven, average finish. Strong citrus nose and notes. Refreshing, yet a little watery. Fades quickly.
