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 cloudy with half an inch of head. Medium bodied. On the aroma I get bread, banana, cloves and a couple of other subtle fruit nuances. On the palate I am getting bread, banana, some cloves, spice and candied fruits as well. Great beer for the summer!

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with an average, frothy white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, straw, hay, meal), light hop (grass), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of pear, banana, and dust. Light bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Short duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 19, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a big sudsy white head that slowly fades to a fine film. The nose is strong with spices: white pepper, cloves and maybe some cinnamon. Not much fruit in the aroma, just spices. The taste has a good fruit profile with banana, pears and melons set in a spicy (mostly clove) malt backdrop. The palate is silky smooth, though a bit thin, with prickly carbonation. The finish is long with lingering cloves. This is a very tasty hefe, but I think that they were a bit heavy handed with the clove.

12oz bottle from Bubbles Liquor World. Pours hazy pale yellow gold with small white head. Aroma smells like banana laffy taffys. Lots of banana, clove and spices. Flavor is banana, clove, grain and some spices. Really tasty hefe. Smooth and refreshing and perfect mouthfeel. I thought I was not going to like this based on style and initial aroma but I would go out and buy a six pack of this.

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Beautiful murky straw pour, with tons of yeasty "floaties", a wispy head that leaves soapy lace. The aromas are of generous banana and sugar & spice cookies. The flavors have bananas, wheat, hints at lemon notes, yeast and tons of spices. The finish closes nicely on a dry spice. This is impeccably balanced, and a wonderful, wonderful example of the style. The mouthfeel is slick, yet substantive in body. Extremely complex, but nothing overdone, this is one incredibly put-together brew.

zombywoof (450) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Opaque, hazy and gold with lots of lacing. Generous aroma of banana, bubble gum, clove and spice. Restrained and balanced complex flavor. Simply one of the best Hefes around. Sierra Nevada does not disappoint. Hello new favorite Hefe.

Generally not a weizen drinker myself, but this is pretty nice. A good bit of wheat tang to it, some citrus and banana. Refreshing beer.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle - pours a hazy golden color with a very thick, long standing foamy white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of banana, spice, and yeast. Nice smooth taste of sweet banana, lemon, wheat and clove - much more of a German Hefeweizen than many of the American version but not overdone on the banana like some that try to be more German. Perfect balance.
