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.

Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Your get a nose of citrus, mostly lemons, but also some small amounts of banana. The taste is a very nice combo of citrus and bananas.Very drinkable beer, and a nice offering from Sierra Nevada.

sound67 (696) - Offenbach, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2009
33cl bottle, as shown. Pours a characteristically cloudy pale orange with an initially big, creamy white head. Retention is moderate, lacing generous. Aroma is of banana, orange and yeast. Medium carbonation and body, deliciously thick yet earthy mouth feel. Weizen flavour is very similar to the German SCHÖFFERHOFER hef, meaning it’s considerably less sweetish than the Bavarian variety - perhaps, the Sierra Nevada is leaner still: Spicy, not very sweet, with a limited range of fruit (banana and citrus, the latter dominating), with a decidedly sour, moderately bitter finish and citrusy after taste. Top-of-the-shelf hefeweizen, as good a beer as I’ve come to expect from Sierra Nevada. If you’re into the "real" hefe taste without the sugary elements, then THIS is your beer.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Not as wheaty as some Hefs. Light head. Not to murky good golden yellow color. Light citrus, bannana and clove flavors. In general not a fan of american hefs. This is pretty good though. Much diffrent than sierra nevada’s other beers

llcooldave (1188) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Herbal aroma with come citrus mixed in. Thick foamy head, cloudy yellow in appearance. Flavor is surprisingly a spicy earthy malt with some yeast playing a part in the background and a herbal coriander/cilantro aftertaste. Overall, not bad... a bit more complex than expected.

juiceisloose (1318) - Windermere, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pours a hazy yellowish orange color topped by a large and foamy off white head that slowly settles to a thin film. The aroma is classic hefe with notes of banana, yeast, clove,citrus, and spices. The flavor follows with sweet banana and bready yeast blended nicely the clove, citrus, and spices. Fresh wheat ties everything together. Medium bodied and smooth and very easy to drink with some nice hop bitterness on the backend. This is a nicely made hefeweizen.

Hazy dark yellow pour with a thick white head. Banana, clove and yeast aroma. Crisp malt, yeast, banana with a smooth taste. Very easy drinking.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 12, 2009
This could be called Killerweiss. Kill smell, kill taste, killer palate - killerly the best of all the Sierra Nevada brews, bar none. Yum. Delicious Hefeweizen goodness. Too bad they said Kellerweis (meaning cellar-wise), instead of what they meant - Kellerweiss - cellar white (like Hefeweizen, cellar wheat).

For the style, I really enjoyed this beer. Fruity aromas lead to a fresh, spicy flavor, with citrus and clove present. Not at all my favorite style of beer, but this is quite tasty.
