COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sinfull (1313) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
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.

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.

Drinkable but not quality to style. Not hazy enough. Nice color. Taste is weak. Bottle

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 (864) - 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 (5568) - 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
