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. da845 (139) - new york, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2006
citrus, spruce, floral and fruity aroma.hazy, pale, white foam, frothy... not too good to look at. Very refreshing and goes down easy. An amazing summer beer after mowing lawn. Doesnt really have any strong taste....just refreshing jsquire (4420) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Light golden beer that got hazy when I swirl some of the yeast into the glass. Huge rocky white head. The nose was of lemon and grass and something vaguely chalky. Very refreshing after coming in from yard work. Lemon, orange rind, a spicy aspect that reminded me of corianger, some bubblegum and yeast. Smooth and chuggable. Not a traditional hefe (as Editor points out), but tastey nonetheless. snowden719 (130) - Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Hazy Golden color with medium white head. Aroma was grassy, with malty wheat smell. Pretty sweet for a hefe, grass taste, refreshing, low bitterness. Could use a bit more balance, finish wasn’t that great due to lack of hoppiness. Bit of a citrus taste on the finish. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Draught. Hazy orange-gold body with a fluffy white head and some sticky lace. The aroma is cheesy, citrusy, and reasonably spicy. The flavour is again, well spiced and there is some fruity citrus type flavours along with sour bread. The profile is a bit simple but it serves it’s purpose as a refreshing throwback. Sampled at Cole’s in Buffalo on June 24, 2006.

Draft. Hazy orange body, moderate small white head. (3+) Lightly hoppy flavour with a very pleasant tart wheaty bite. Wheaty, grassy aroma with a moderate hop presence and some citrus. Average palate well suited to a warm day at Cole’s. Didn’t like this as much at the end of the glass as I did at the beginning, but it was quite pleasant and refreshing nonetheless.

Herbal Hoppy and some lemon, like a blend of a pale ale and a hefweizen. Moderate amount of wheat in the mouth A nice one, though light on the mouth. Yeast wheaty smell. Cloudy yellowness with white head.Good summer day beer.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 One bottle from Joe’s Garage pk. Poured very little head. Slight lemon aroma. Flavor of lemon grass. Not much carbonation. I still have another to try.
Rerate 6/26/06 More carbonation in this bottle to give it a bigger head. Still had that odd aftertaste though. hershiser2 (3003) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle. Pale yellow with chunks and a huge white head. Heavy lemony aroma and especially bitter flavor, with lots of grass as well. Um, not sure what to think about it... not crazy about it. It’s definitely odd, but not something I’d seek out. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Odd beer. Ok aroma. If I wouldn’t have read the description here I wouldn’t have known that they used lemon grass. It’s not in the aroma but I could taste it near the end of the beer (and after when I burped some of it up). Flavor is just decent but mild with nothing outstanding going on in the beer.
