Circus Boy is Magic Hat's Hefeweizen. It has a deep golden color with a hint of amber. The head is fizzy and subsides quickly. The aroma is very plain. Mostly just boiled hops. No straw, hay, or bread. It's definitely a sweet brew. It starts sweet and the honey-ish flavor stays on the edges of the tongue. From the mid to the back there is a bit of coriander and spice. But the flavor stops about there. Just like the aroma, this hefe is missing the core components. No earthiness. No breadiness. No citrus. And too sweet for what it's trying to be. The positive is that it is very easy to drink. But that's about all I can say about it. Magic Hat has much much better stuff. This is disappointing.

pours out a hazed gold colour with the addition of the dregs. little head with poor retention. the addition of lemongrass accentuates the overall already lemony aroma. definitely fruity. the taste is more of the same. while not a true hefe, there are some shared characteristics. underneath the lemony facade there is bits and pieces of hay and grass with some slight spicy notes. american pale wheat for sure, with a noticeable back end bitterness. this is a unique tasting beer. medium bodied with a coarse mouthfeel. drinkability is nice. would be really awesome to quench a thirst in the summertime.
overall, this is a twist on the american wheat style that leans heavily on the lemon quenching aspects. i picked this up on clearance for a really low price, and had it been summer, i would have bought multiple cases.
