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 hazy amber with a white head. Smells of sweet wheat, some coriander, spicy. Tastes sweet with corinder, ginger and some clove showing up on the finish.

12oz. brown bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a cloudy, pale gold with a big white head. Plenty of carbonation which is typical of the style. Spicy aroma with more clove than banana, which is how I prefer a hefe. Light to medium body. More banana in the flavor and some wheaty spice. They really nailed the creamy mouthfeel that you typically only get in a German Hefe. Seems to be some noble hops in there. Dry finish. One of the best American takes on Hefe.

I can’t imagine a much better Hefeweizen. True to continental styles, and hopped and a tolerable level: I’m impressed! Very good hefe with spicy aroma and wheaty goodness in the flavor. Complex and refreshing.

dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Pours an expected hazy gold with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of wheat, citrus, banana, yeast, and a bit of spice. Flavor matches well and is very refreshing. Thoroughly enjoyed.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 Looks like a tropical smoothie with a decently frothy white head that doesn’t retain very well. Pretty strong aroma of banana, clove, lemongrass, and yeast. Strong banana on the flavor. A little bit sweeter than I had expected, but a really solid hefe. Silky and creamy mouthfeel with a sweet, wet finish. As my beer knowledge has matured I have come to really respect S N. They make some great beers and this is no exception.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden body before adding the last bit in which it immediately turns very cloudy and more orange than gold. Thick, two-finger width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is full of citrus, banana bread, and clove. Some bubble gum, yeast, and wheat as well. I like this moderately sweet aroma. The flavor is solid, but I like the aroma a little more. Soft cloves are aplenty as well as a milky banana-wheat bread, yeast, a subdued citrus zest, pear, and more of that bubble gum taste. Finishes semi-dry with a creamy banana, yeast, wheat, semi-zesty citrus that lingers for a moderate amount of time. Medium to full bodied, creamy smooth, and a nice soft carbonation. Overall, I’m rather impressed with this. The creamy banana bread flavor is pretty nice. A solid new release.

Golden body, a little cloudy with a white head. Nice sweet banana, clove, yeast aroma. Sweet, light flavor - more banana and yeast; very little aftertase. Excellent beer for a hot day.

I think it came up a little short of being an excellent representation of a hefeweizen but didn’t come across as a wheat. I don’t like wheat and love Hewe’s so I feel I’m the perfect critic for this beer. So take my advice and grab a six’er of Kellerweis. DO IT!
