COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The grain bill for this beer is big, and it calls for over 60% wheat malt. The Wheat malt also helps to contribute to the whiteness of this beer. The high gravity of this beer combined with the suspended yeast give it a luscious, nectar-like mouthfeel. The Yeast are essential to the beer, as they give it characteristic fruity tones such as Clove, Banana, Vanilla, and Bubblegum.

Looks can be deceiving. The bountiful snow-white head and hazy yellow body held so much promise but Millstreams Hefe Weissen ultimately let me down. The aroma’s not bad. It’s faint but has some clove spice and grains. The taste has cloves, wheat, and a touch of banana. I thought the spicy elements were too heavy and the sweet elements were underplayed. I wanted some bubblegum and cream but they were nowhere to be found. A distinct yeast taste was also missing from this brew. While the mouthfeel and appearance are almost perfect, this Hefeweizen could use some work in the taste and smell department(s).

Bottle. Labeled Hefe "R" Weissen. Cow pic offered on the label. Bland murky light orange pour. Getting a little veggie soup, but mild. Wheat and mild spice. Not great.

bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Cloudy dirty gold color, head that drops quickly to a light rim, no lace. Aroma of wheat and spice. Taste is normal going in - wheat malt with light spices; but, somewhere the spices take a wrong turn becoming sour. Doesn’t exactly fit. Not a keeper

Bottle. A- Banana, wheat, spices. A- Golden color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Banana, bubblegum, spices, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, wheaty finish. O- I like the name they use now with a cow on the bottle and calling it a Hefe R Weizen. Cleverly played. A pretty standard hefe in taste. Lots of bubblegum and banana. I could drink it although I wouldn’t seek it.

I think this beer is called Millstream Heferweizen now, they changed it and there is a cow on the label. If that is not true, then I dreamed up a sweet name and label.

12 oz bottle as Millstream Hefe "R" Weissen. J. From Iowa. A big thank you to John M.
Hazy orange golden colour with a small white head. Wheat, yeast, yoghurt sourness, banana and toffee sweetness in the aroma. Nice. The flavour is very refreshing. There’s quite a lot Witbier notes... Spices, yeast, mild sourness, wheat and some sweetness in the flavour. Good and tasty. I’m surprised.

Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a thin white head. Nose is yeast and fruit. Very creamy on the palate. Taste is mild with a wheat backbone, accompanied by a little yeasty bread, some apricot and banana accents. Hops are very light. A nice summer sipping beer best accompanied by light cheeses or nuts.

Bottle from John’s grocery. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Big banana on the nose. Very ripe. Not a lot going on the tongue. Slight banana note at most. Finishes clean. Eh!

Bottle in Iowa City. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with white head. Bubblegum, soapy, clove, orange dishwater detergent aromas. Bubblegum, clove, yeasty flavors. There are some things I like about this beer, but there is a little bit of a weird bubblegum/soapy flavor that I’m not a big fan of.
