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.

LimeGreenHalo (6) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015 does not count
Pours a hazy straw colour with diminutive head. Aroma correctly described by the brewer as banana and spices. Plays about lively on the tounge for a few seconds only before dissipating to leave a refreshing clean taste. Excellent stuff.

cfrancis (2729) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Pours cloudy dark straw yellow with a moderate white top. Aroma of banana, wheat and coriander. Taste is much the same, nice body and chewiness with a light floral hop character.

Luvystypotables (1118) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2015
A spicy aroma of clove and pepper, pours a hazy gold color with minimal head and light carbonation. Taste of clove and lemon with a medium body and a spicy finish.

reberiii (437) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Pretty solid hefe. Nice spicy nose, not too much banana in the mouth, and super ’crushable’.

Velkyal (313) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2015
From bottles, pours a murky light orange, having rolled the bottles to distribute the yeast, with a couple of inches of white whipped cream foam. Aroma of cereal malts, light banana and a noticeable clove element tell me this is the right ballpark for weizen. Flavours of grain, a touch bready, and light lemony hops with the esters mixed in without dominating - clearly a well constructed brew. Medium mouthfeel, easy drinkability. Excellent example of a much abused style.

mp_lane (96) - Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours hazy yellow with thin white head. Aroma is tart and fruity. Taste is very smooth and flavorful, a nice example of a domestic hefeweizen. Very nice example.
