3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy pale yellow with a large white frothy head that dissipated quickly down to a thick film with a medium collar and had some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was pretty basic for a Hefeweizen, with a mild grain malt and a soapy yeast and having notes of citrus (lemon), banana and a bit of coriander.
The taste was light and mildly sweet with a slight banana wheat presence early on, then became rather yeasty with a hint of lemon, a moderate dose of spice and a slight bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor was very short lived with the slight spicy yeast taste fading quickly after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a unusually mild carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic Hefeweizen with a nice taste, a refreshing feel and a great drinkability. This is a brew that is light in alcohol and refreshing in taste, making it a great addition to any summer outing...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.8 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.

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.
