2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. Itís actually pretty damn clear until the yeast is poured in - and even after, itís still not that cloudy. The head isnít anything to write home about, either. It isnít even a finger high, has an off-white color, and very poor retention.
S: Smells like a generic wheat ale. The ester notes are very muted...and even worse, seem off somehow. Wheat malt is the most prevalent note I pick up, along with a twinge of candied sugar.
T: Thereís lots of wheat to start, along with a slight spiciness. And then after that...nothing. The finish is empty in flavor. I guess it isnít bad, but thatís only because itís so devoid of character.
M: Well, if I have to pick something I like about this one, then Iíll say I enjoy how soft it feels. Itís a pretty sweet brew, as well, lacking the vibrant carbonation of some examples.
O: BOOO-RING. The simple fact that itís just really dull instantly makes it better than the abomination that was Seance, at least. In a way, I hate these boring beers simply because they create dull reviews...just like this one.

Pours a medium yellow. Aromas of grains and grass. Flavor was kind of strange, lots of grainy flavor and a little hops.

A very citrusy take on a hefe so I'm not sure how close it exactly is. But it's got a refreshing flavor to it that's quite a bit different from the norm.

Not bad , though little bit strange hefeweizen. Cloudy , yellow color. Aroma of grain , banana , lemongrass. Sweet, fruity taste with touch of bitterness at the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad beer. I tend to really like Hefeweizens, but this doesnít strike me as a great hefe or even as something that could really be called a hefe at all. Drink something else if thatís what youíre looking for specifically, but Magic Hat tends to do silly things a lot and I think their beer has kind of fallen off in the last few years as a result.

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
