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).

This is my favorite beer. I donít like a lot of banana in my beer so thatís a plus to me. The citrus notes go well with the lemongrass. Its a lighter beer and I refer to it as a thirst quencher.

MarkoR (814) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a yellow golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is grain, some banana. Taste is grain, lemon, some spices. Nothing impressive.

Mild lemon aroma. A hazy golden body with a light white head. A gentle lemon taste with a hint of bitterness. Clean refreshing finish. Light bodied.

nuplastikk (5270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2015
12oz bottle. Pretty unimpressive aroma for the style...grainy, doughy, not much banana or clove, more along the lines of an American Wheat. And itís filtered...so maybe a Kristalweizen? The lemongrass is not a bonus, giving it a perfume-like artificial tinge. Drinkable, but pretty shabby overall.

Pours a light golden color with a weak white head. A crisp lemon taste with a subtle citrus finish. Not a great imitation or rendition. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has very little aroma. It is a very smooth beer. The aroma and color are lacking but the taste makes up for it.

Frank (3603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
This is a rather exceptionally bready tasting brew. Itís cloudy orange w/ a long lasting white head and great big splotches of lace. It smells like bread yeast and flour w/ a hint of herbal grassiness. The texture is nice and juicy thick w/o being sweet or heavy and w/ creamy carbonation. This richness seems to bring out a bit of banana and an ever-so-slight touch of tart lemon. I think I prefer my hefes w/ a stronger banana character but this has the texture spot-on which is rare to find so definitely worth a try for fans of the style.
