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.

loubar (43) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop. Nose of yeast subtle spices and hay. Gentle Belgian spice overtone (citrus, coriander and cloves) is almost understated against a bready wheat malt base for a light and very creamy hefe. All the way to the dry finish it’s never over the top. Exceptionally smooth, balanced, tasty and drinkable.

CacheManyHose (224) - HONG KONG - OCT 20, 2014
Cloudy (almost opaque when first poured) bright straw-colour with diminishing head and no legs. Smells quite fresh - lots of orange, banana, light phenols (clove, spice, yeast), wheat, bready malt, bubblegum/potpourri. Aroma is more sweet and less spicy than typical hefes. Taste is similarly sweet, spicy, wheat/pale malts. Body is light and very creamy. Fizzy. Very drinkable, quite sweet. I like that the palate is velvety smooth rather than aggressively frothy/spicy.
