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 didnít like the aroma, at least this is the first Magic Hat beer Iíve tried that didnít smell like butterscotch so I am thankful for that. After getting past the aroma, the flavor wasnít 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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. 5/3/06. Pours a hazy golden/apricot color with a frothy bright white head. Head receedes to a thin layer and a medium ring. Nose is lemony, light fruity esters, some grassy notes, and a light yeast. Flavors of lemon and light clove, some more yeasty notes and a bit of dirty water. Palate is stingy and over carbonated, leaves a dirty taste in the mouth.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Opaque golden body with a diminishing white bubbly/frothy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and citrusy notes. Taste is unbalanced and dominated by hops. It also carries some herbal notes. It leaves an unpleasant sour aftertaste. This is not a horrible beer, but it definitely lacks balance.

Bottle. Had at a beer tasting in DC. A nice light lemony aroma. Taste is of faint wheat and lemons. Pretty good beer, not great but decent.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (12oz). Hazy-bubbly pale gold with a decent bright white fizzy head. Aroma - lemongrass, man o man! Sort of like slightly sour lemon air freshener, sharply lemony with some spice. The lemongrass works better in the flavour, which is very refreshin - crisp, citrusy, decent carbonation and a little acidic. Another oddball - it canít decide if itís a lame-o attempt at an american wheat or a fizzy spice/;veg brew.
