Now this is a Hefeweissen made for Iowa! We took a little liberty with putting a twist on the name and making ours a Hefe"r"weissen to fit in the whole Iowa thing we have going on at Millstream Brewery.

While we took liberties and played with the name, we did not compromise on making a true German Hefeweizen. As with a Hefeweizen, ours is quite sweet and fruity, with a full body. Our yeast produces the unique phenolic flavors of banana and cloves. It is very lightly hopped so it has little bitterness.

Muddy golden-orange body, with minimal head. Good lacing however.
Appealing nose of banana, pear and clove.
Taste follows suit with banana, clove, and (guess what) pear. Relatively large dough flavors, with some slightly sour yeast notes. Mushy banana aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing dazzling. Seems restrained.
Body is somewhat spritzy, but lacks substance. Thin, and not very creamy.
Not a beer I'd choose to consume in quantity, since there are alot of great hefeweizens around. This is far from the worst I've had, but equally far from the best. (568 characters)
