12 ounce bottle, cellar temp, Ayinger weizen glass, from Brennan’s in Monroe WI. Very pale gold, huge smooth head that diminishes a little quickly, some lacing...the fairly typical banana-bubblegum nose is accented a bit with lemon and faint vanilla; if there’s clove to be found, I haven’t...the body is lemony-tart, a bit more acidic than I expected at first, but a good bready malt develops and the acid fades away to a great extent, though never disappearing altogether...finish is tart, lightly acidic, with a nice full body that doesn’t quite get heavy, moderate carbonation. All in all pretty solid and better than I remember this brewery’s offerings being years ago. ozzy70 (1283) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 5, 2015
12 oz. bottle into glass. Pours cloudy with off white head that diminishes quickly. Taste is not what I expected from a German Hefeweizen. Initial flavor sweet, finish odd. Ratman197 (15376) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle poured a hazy tarnished gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, yeast, clove and light bubblegum. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, clove and light banana with a smooth dry lingering clove finish. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2014

12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Notch on the bottle is on June. Half hazy golden color. Thin bubbly off-white head, that soon dissipates a bit.. Leaves some splotches of lace. Good wheat aroma, some lemon, mild spice, german hefe yeast (mild banana, good vanilla). Medium body. Good full feel. Smooth, kind of soft, lightly crisp, light carbonation. Sort of slick texture. Moderate tart taste, moderate sweet. Very light bitter. Solid American hefe.

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). BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2014
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. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2014
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.

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. arnold931 (1264) - Iowa, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft. Fairly bland hefe. Pours cloudy light yellow with white head. Some banana and wheat in the nose. Flavor is about the same.
