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).

Huhzubendah's rating

Huhzubendah (3698) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2013
The beer is hazy and yellow, as is typical of the style. Small white head that leaves a thick trail of lacing on the glass. The aroma offers lemons, malt, cleaning solution. More cleaning solution and artificial lemon in the flavor. Lacking body, character. Tastes gimmicky, cheap. Just not my thing. I would never choose this over any German hefe. Not a repeat.

smaynard6000 (1143) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2017
On tap. Golden in color with an average sized creamy white head. Faint aroma of citrus and spices. Mostly sweet with some banana notes. Light bodied. Not bad.

joeneugs (6370) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 18, 2016
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.

nittanytide (281) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Poured pale gold with a bubbly head that quickly disappeared. Faint orange aroma. Taste is oranges and orange zest. Didn’t 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, it’s fairly crisp and refreshing. There is nice carbonation. It?s not a great interpretation of the style though.

jsporrer (973) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours a clear deep amber with a huge head of white foam. Not much aroma or flavor. Pretty ordinary and Blah!

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a medium yellow. Aromas of grains and grass. Flavor was kind of strange, lots of grainy flavor and a little hops.

ecook90 (32) - Nevada, USA - MAR 20, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
