Magic Hat Brewing Co. Elixirs Find... Brewery Tour Now Playing Shop Peep Show Get Social About Us Home Blog Circus Boy ó 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.

Editorís 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).

Bottle. Poured a bit hazy and golden with a pretty good head. Not dead, not overactive. Seeing as how the bottle is very proud of the fact itís unfilitered, Iíd have thought it would be cloudier. Eh. When this comes straight out of the fridge, itís pretty good and refreshing. The nose isnít much, mostly lemon and wheat, and it gets weaker as it warms. The lemongrass makes for a nice, refreshing mouthfeel when cold. Very citrusy and a slight bit of wheat. It really dulls out as it warms, though, and starts to taste like whole wheat bread. And, if theyíre going to call it a hefe, Iíd like some more spice in it. On a hot day, this would make a pretty good lawnmower beer, but thatís about it.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pours hazy orange gold with a white head. It has a light wheat hop aroma. The flavor is of refreshing citrus with a zest of lemon. The aftertaste is slightly bitter with the sourness of citrus.

crazyvin (2019) - New York, USA - MAY 27, 2006
good overall. a hazy brownish-yellow body with a white head. Citrus notes and a slight peppery aroma. Taste was mild with some citrus notes. hops seemed to be floral in a spice nature. smooth but a little too watery.

DocLock (8184) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle from State Line. Turbid off-gold pour, with 2-finger fizzy white head and a lot of floaties and sinkers. The aroma is very hopcitric, including orange zest, lemon, some clove, and soapy tangerines. The flavor is very citric, with a solid pale malt base, and some clovey hops.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2006
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.

hopscotch (9840) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Bottle... Hazy, yellow ale with a small, frothy, white head. The aroma is citrusy and yeasty, but Iím 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!

TomDecapolis (4579) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 15, 2006
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.
