rosenbergh (7012) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2013
12 fl oz bottle. From Iowa. A big thank you to John M.
Hazy dark orange golden colour with an average sized white head. Toffee sweetness, wheat, yeast and more sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is... bitter... and yeasty. Alcohol is also very well present. Not very enjoyable. The aroma promised more...

It poured a dark hazy brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was big notes of bubblegum, fruity esters, biscuit, banana and spice. The taste was of sweet bubblegum, fruit notes, slight banana, spice notes, a slight touch of honey, with a very sweet sticky finish.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy dark gold with a thin white head. Nose is fruit and honey. Creamy texture and thick viscosity. Very flavorful and sweet with a wheat backbone with lots of honey sweetness, some fruitiness and very little hop bitterness. Overall, an enjoyable tasty brew. Can be enjoyed alone or pairs well with smoked turkey sandwich.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Murky orange pour with minimal head. Smells of banana and booze - okay. Taste - lets call it undrinkable. Boozy malt likka like. Gross.

So I start the uphill part of my ride on my way to being the top rater of Iowa beers before the end of this month.
This is an attractive enough beer in the glass, itís got a nice lightly hazy golden color and a medium sized, well retained head.

The aroma is doughy, grainy, sweet, & boozy. The banana and spice thing is there, but itís pretty subdued... itís got sort of a weird booze on over ripe fruit thing that you find in some Malt Liquors.

The flavor is very ripe banana, like almost more of a true banana flavor than you typically find in a hefeweizen, without giving off a lot of the sweetness that more traditional Hefes & Weizenbocks do. Those are the things I like about this beer. Unfortunately the spiciness & alcohol are really bold and come across as a touch brash, still I like this better than I thought I would.

This brings back memories of the Festival of Iowa brewers years back when the other Weizenbock Millstream makes came out, I like that beer better than this one, but theyíve got some very similar characteristics. Not sure why Iím waxing about this, but that was a really fun time... and, I donít know... sort of nice to babble about it for a minute.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Wheaty base, with banana fruity notes, grains, and some honey sweetness. A little rough and unrefined with some lingering sweetness. Not bad, though.

Bottle at Blippís surprise tasting. Pours murky gold with no head. Nose and taste of banana, cheap honey, clove and wheat malt. Medium body.

jcnielsen (2187) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle in Iowa City. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a hazy orange color with white head. Wheat, yeast, spicy flavors. This beer tastes like my first hefeweizen homebrew but higher in alcohol and worse. Hardly drinkable.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle @ Holiday Inn Iowa City picked up @ Johnís Grocery. Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a thin off white head. Cloying, somewhat boozy, banana, spicy, messy aroma. Tangy, big banana, somewhat citrusy, vanilla, over the top flavor. Iím not digging this garbage.

Bottle. Pour is cloudy yellow orange, thin white that does sick to the side. Aroma is honey, candy, caramel, lemon, apricot. Sweet. Taste is sweet cereal, sticky honey, lemon, some peach, slight metallic tinge. Body is bigger, carbonation is light.
