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.

Editor’s 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).

Nice. The lemongrass is very interesting. Not bad, and very drinkable. Won’t blow your socks off, but a very pleasant tipple.

i can understand the name. Novel appearance, is that bananas?fizzy fun mouth feel. but then there very adult bitters. Little if any hops. Perfect beer for frat boy burping contests. Does it come by the keg?

Interesting brew. Drinkable, cloudy, refreshing, lemony, banana-ey, slightly malty? Another respectable magic hat brew and cool label, too.

This one is pretty refreshing, no matter which category you care to put it in. Lemon Grass? Oh, that’s what it tastes like! Note: bottle came with lots o’ sediment in the bottom. Poured clear, but I think it tasted better with all the junk suspended. Deep orange hue. Very cloudy. Light and refreshing finish.

12oz bottle: This pours a mainly cloudy golden color. It was a little fizzy, and suprisingly had no head to it. The aroma was OK, with some notes of banana, but mainly citrus and some wheaty breadiness. The taste has a suprising hint of bitterness to it. Some wheat flavor, with some malts to the body also. It had potential, but I think the circus boy was hanging out with the bearded lady instead of making a good beer.

DarkMagus (546) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Hazy orange amber color, minimal head, light carbonation. Not what I usually expect from a hefeweizen in terms of head. Aroma was noticably hoppy, with citrus, wheat, and yeast elements. Fairly unimpressive for a hefeweizen overall, somewhat of a disappointment!

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Cold 12oz bottle. Cloudy orange/golden color with large ivory head. Nice taste...very orange and mildly hoppy. Kind of fizzy on the tongue. Ends slightly bitter.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle: Cloudy orange with a large fluffy white head, stale malts and rich orange hops in the aroma, medium bodied with prickly carbonation, starts and ends lightly bitter with a bitter roasted ending.

On tap at Cole’s! 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.)

adrian910ss (2587) - Doylestown, PA, USA - JUL 14, 2006
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.
