A summer classic. Circus Boy pours a light golden color with a very fizzy head. The smell was mostly wheat with a little bit of citrus on the nose. I found the taste to be the exact opposite with a lot of lemon grass and orange flavors while not that much wheat. It was a little thin but for the summer I was pretty content with one. Overall it didn't blow me away or anything, but not a bad beer by any means either.

3.51/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a weizen glass.

The color a cloudy gold/yellow and of course is unfiltered since it is a Hefeweizen. The head is white and is less than a finger thick and leaves no lacing on the glass.

The smell is lemon peel with a yeast aroma that carries a slight bready aroma there toward the back.

The taste has more of that lemony twang that seems to mix well with the yeast that is prominent here as well. The lemon begins to taste a little sour toward the back with the ever so light bitterness that comes toward the end.

The feel of this beer is crisp with a really light drinkable feel. This beer goes down easy and is low in ABV and makes for a good session beer.
