COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

ElPresidente1984 (173) - Maine, USA - MAY 3, 2006
not to impressive. tasted like a white beer with the lemon already squeezed in. very lemony, some spice and some other cirtus. kinda watery.

2.5
Eructoblaster (4264) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle. Opaque golden body with a diminishing white bubbly/frothy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and citrusy notes. Taste is unbalanced and dominated by hops. It also carries some herbal notes. It leaves an unpleasant sour aftertaste. This is not a horrible beer, but it definitely lacks balance.

jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle. Had at a beer tasting in DC. A nice light lemony aroma. Taste is of faint wheat and lemons. Pretty good beer, not great but decent.

HogTownHarry (7010) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Hazy-bubbly pale gold with a decent bright white fizzy head. Aroma - lemongrass, man o man! Sort of like slightly sour lemon air freshener, sharply lemony with some spice. The lemongrass works better in the flavour, which is very refreshin - crisp, citrusy, decent carbonation and a little acidic. Another oddball - it can’t decide if it’s a lame-o attempt at an american wheat or a fizzy spice/;veg brew.

Not quite "hefe" enough. The commercial description is better than the contents and ceratainly more than I can discernt. Not bad really, just nothing more constructive to add and fairly mundane all around.

3.1
Odeed (1805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 29, 2006
(tasting at the loft)yellow appearance with a nice hoppy aroma.flavor was a mix mix of hops,and straw.lawnmower brew for sure.

2.4
IMtheOptimator (1170) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2006
Poured a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of acidic lemony citrus with some off notes, like sweaty gym socks. Taste is toffee, lemon, and more sock character. Not impressed.

3.3
beastiefan2k (4007) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2006
I worte my rating of this beer knowing nothing other than it is a hefe: Bottle poured into a small pilsner glass. Color is cloudy light yellow. The nose is very lemony, more lemon than just citus. A very present aroma. The beer has a bite to it when you taste it. Jumps in your mouth and tickles the taste buds. The flavor is again lemony, not hefe-like. The beer has a light body with a bit of bitterness. It seems my original notes go hand in hand with the decision to make it a spice/herb/veg beer.

2.9
BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2006
[bottle] Sweet sugary aroma. Flavors are strong wheat, yeast and lemony citrus flavors. Finishes quite bitter. Not the greatest.

3.7
Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 From the Joe’s garage collection sampled with Stegosaurus, pours golden with a decent white head, aroma of citrus, sweet malts, slight hoppy aroma. Flavor is sweet up font, lemony flavored with some hoppy bitterness and a dry finish, i enjoyed this.
