COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kellerweis is one of the only American Hefeweizens made using the traditional Bavarian style of open fermentation. This difficult and labor-intensive technique adds uncommon depth and flavor complexity. Our hazy-golden hefeweizen is deeply flavorful, refreshing and perfect for a sunny day. To serve, pour two-thirds into a glass, swirl and pour the rest.

Stine (1531) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Beautiful, cloudy, apricot hued pour with sticky resilient foam. Browned banana, zesty clove, distant mint and some mace; enormously herb forward with the ever balancing banana creaminess and doughy yeast for its pillowy center. Golden delicious apples offer a substantial sweetness and light acidity.

White dough and prickly light spice in the flavor with mild fruitiness bringing to mind Bartlett pears and pineapple, though the gentle banana notes are always the clearest. The wet dough sensation generally overwhelms the brisk spiciness.

This is amplified throughout the mushy, yeasty body. Zippy carbonation flashes briefly to be thoroughly softened before the finish. Lingering banana sweetness with the tiniest hint of goat milk. Generally flavorful example held back somewhat by textural issues and a boring yeast component.

Light orange cloudy body with big creamy head. Long lacing. Aromas orange, citrus, honey, hay. Palate tart fruity wheat yeasty. Carbonation is soft smooth and mouthful. Aftertaste is fruity little cereal, and yeasty. Overall average Weissbier. Nothing special here but drinkable.

Yummy! The banana notes when poured are delicious. Good wheat taste but not ever bearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
