0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Not having read any of the previous reviews of this before i bought it, I thought that I was going to try a nice unfiltered hefeweizen, which I generally like. Upon first pour, the beer looked decent, hazy with a big white head. Promising. Then I smelled it. Sewage. It smelled like sewage. Should have stopped there, but i decided to drink it. Tasted nothing like a hefeweizen. Lousy, slightly citrus flavor, unpleasant bitterness, horrible finish that just lasts and lasts. This beer sucks ass.

Bottle. Light, cloudy straw on the pour with a short lived head. Spice on the nose. Flavors of ginger and some citrus. Definately not a Hefeweizen as described on the bottle. Another Magic Hat brew that wasnít very magical.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemongrass, peat, dandelion on the nose from this not bad-looking, hazy, blond beer. Some lacing. Grabby on the palate, with some tart hops and herbal flavors. Earthy finish is a little cloying, too. Definitely not for those expecting a hefe.

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 itís not a true hefe but Magic Hat is best when theyíre 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 itís not a good one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 didnít really know what that was when I drank it. Worth a try, but not your typical hefe.
