Very disappointing. There is a cloudy haze with some hops present. The lemongrass is present but balance is lacking.

murky golden yellow. Sweet crisp lemony fruity. An easy drinker that doesnt offer enough though.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Sure it’s not a true hefe but Magic Hat is best when they’re out of the box. This was a very refresing, grassy and citrus beer.

Somerville Beer Carnival 06 - Bottle. Pours orangish and clear. Aroma not really like a hefe. Taste has a little wheat and a lot of citrus and grassyness. Bad alcohol flavor and pretty thin. If this is a hefe it’s not a good one.

Very very strong lemongrass. Gives it a bit of an herbal, vegetal flavor. Reminds me of sprite with that light lemon-lime flavor. Slightly yeasty, and a good bit bready in texture. Strange bitterness in the finish. Some hops, with slight citrus coming here too. An interesting idea, but with some problems.

Interesting to read about this after having it last night. The lemongrass is a strong bittersweet flavor, of course I didn’t really know what that was when I drank it. Worth a try, but not your typical hefe.

Smells like Thai dinner. I guess that spice is called lemongrass. Looks a bit too orange and clear to be a hefe. No head. Good call ratebeer on pronouncing it a spice/herb/vegetable beer. Has a hoppy taste in the palate and a dry mouthfeel. Interesting beer, not sure I want it again though.

I like this beer but, as many others have mentioned, it doesn’t have a typical hef taste to it, or more to the point it has a generic American hef flavor. I expect a little more wheat flavor, a little more cloudiness and a little more chewiness to a hef but its a very nice beer, goes down smooth, almost a hef light.

Pours an orange color that is not very cloudy with a minimal head. The taste is mainly of lemon, a bitter lemon, there was also some wheat taste and it has a watery taste.
