COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditionally brewed, Bavarian style wheat beer. The beer is fermented with the Weihenstephan Weizen yeast. This yeast gives it a soft clove and banana profile. The beer is brewed with over 60% wheat malt, which gives the beer a hearty wheat flavor. Using only Czech Saaz hops, for a true European taste.

A little citrus and grain. However, lacking a little as most of the Stone beers. Not much to it.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 Stone City hefeweizen is on a par with the great wheat beers and was quite a good local beer. Very enjoyable to drink.

A very nice thirst-quenching hefe. Good clove-banana aroma. Especially good on tap fresh at the brewery

How to describe it . . . flavorful, yet gritty. Unfiltered wheat beer or no, itís got a vague sandy consistency, but itís extremely refreshing and, if youíre in Eastern Iowa, itís a darn good local brew thatís reasonably readily available. Nice citrusy hints, decent body--not bad at all.

I love this kind of beer. It seems to be the only thing apart from a Corona type beer that I can handle.
