Magic Hat Brewing Co. Elixirs Find... Brewery Tour Now Playing Shop Peep Show Get Social About Us Home Blog Circus Boy 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.

Editors 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).

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2006
On tap at Coles! Aroma of fruit, spice and wheat, hazy yellow, tiny cream head. Flavour is a great fresh wheat , and some hard to pinpoint spices. Light bodied, refreshing treat. Very good.( I was guessing between a saison or a wiesse.)

Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a medium sized thick white head. Aroma is wheaty with hints of mowed grass and lemon. Flavor is mostly wheat, with hints of wet grass and lemon lime citrus. Average at best.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Fairly clear gold pour with a 1-2 finger white head, no retention and no lacing. Bland aroma despite the brewers claim. Fairly weak malt and slight hop bitterness on the toungue with a little citrus. Short and clean finish. Hefeweizen??? Not even close. This beer is filtered (or looks that way), has no clove or banana notes and misses the mark on every other hallmark of a hefe.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Draught at the WBF in Raleigh. Nice white head, cloudy appearance, and citrus aroma. Almost more of a Belgian white to me, and then theres this hoppiness that is unexpected. Its not like magic hat to make anything true to style--kind of refreshing in a way.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2006

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
12 oz bottle. Looks like a milkshake. Orange-yellow and completely opaque. Very citrusy aromas of lemon peel, lemongrass, some apple and pear. Pretty light on the hefeweizen character. Creamy texture which is good but all of the strong lemongrass flavour kills this for me. A bit grassy with moderate bitterness. Bready/yeasty finish.

Ah, leave it to magic hat to need this ridiculous disclaimer that they have no clue what they are making or how it can be reasonably marketed. The aroma has a lot of lemon hazelnuttiness wheat berm kernel. Ywllow towards orange, big off white head. tasty head, butty bready, less fruit than expected from aroma. sweetish light honeyed palate. better than expected but not great.
