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.

Bottle. It pours a pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is sweet and lemony with strong lemongrass notes. The flavor has some decent wheat malt and more intense lemongrass. Pretty sweet and simple. Only light hints of hefeweizen yeast. Kinda boring but refreshing by the poolside.

Poured pale gold with a bubbly head that quickly disappeared. Faint orange aroma. Taste is oranges and orange zest. Didnít have the crisp-wheaty-citrusness that I expected from the style. Decent, but there are better hefes out there.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 I poured it from the bottle into a glass. The aroma is banana, spice, and wheat. The taste is banana, spice, and wheat. While cold, itís fairly crisp and refreshing. There is nice carbonation. It?s not a great interpretation of the style though.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear deep amber with a huge head of white foam. Not much aroma or flavor. Pretty ordinary and Blah!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium yellow. Aromas of grains and grass. Flavor was kind of strange, lots of grainy flavor and a little hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
