I'm not sure if the recipe for this changed recently or what but I can not agree with some of the reviews here saying that this beer just tastes like a regular beer. When I tried Circus Boy, the citrus taste in the beer was STRONG. I got a heavy dose of lemongrass and a slight hint of banana. Interestingly, the next time I had the beer from a different six pack, the citrus flavor was still there but not as intense.

Overall though, The Hefeweizen is a really good wheat beer. A few of my buddies tried it for the first time when the swung by last weekend and they loved it. This may be my favorite of that Magic Hat line as of this writing.
