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. The "Hefe" prefix means "with yeast", thus the beers unfiltered and cloudy appearance. "Weizen" means wheat.
