Magic Hat "Circus Boy"
Magic Hat Brewing Company - South Burlington, Vermont USA
Hefeweizen (ABV 4.5%) (IBU 15)

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a hazy pale yellow with a large white frothy head that dissipated quickly down to a thick film with a medium collar and had some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was pretty basic for a Hefeweizen, with a mild grain malt and a soapy yeast and having notes of citrus (lemon), banana and a bit of coriander.

The taste was light and mildly sweet with a slight banana wheat presence early on, then became rather yeasty with a hint of lemon, a moderate dose of spice and a slight bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor was very short lived with the slight spicy yeast taste fading quickly after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a unusually mild carbonation.

Overall a pretty basic Hefeweizen with a nice taste, a refreshing feel and a great drinkability. This is a brew that is light in alcohol and refreshing in taste, making it a great addition to any summer outing...
