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.

Poured from bottle into my new Summit Pint, which is kind of shaped between a pint glass and a weizen glass. Very hazy pale orange with nice head and active bubbles and legs. Aroma is a nice mix of bananas and cloves, with some wheatiness. Fantastic balance of wheat malt, bananas and cloves. Mostly spicy at the end. Most Hefeweizens lean more toward one aspect or another (wheat, banana, clove), but this really is evenly balanced. High carbonation and light body - works well for this beer. All around fantastic summer beer. Wheat beers donít get much better (except for a couple German made Hefeweizens).

Hangover (1115) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Clear golden pour with a huge, frothy white head. Strong, yeasty aroma. Flavor is pretty agressive, with a big grainy bite, lingering light spiciness. For the style, this is quite bold and flavorfull.

ChazMania (662) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Bottled. Poured into pint glass. Typical hefe type color, very small head. Mild banana and spice flavor, not dominant like Iíve had in other versions. Good refreshing beer, low abv so this could be drank all day long on a hot summer day.

09maso3 (72) - vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2009
cloudy orange-yellow appearance. Like peach juice with large thick white head. Very full spice/fruit aroma. Bananas predominate. Fruity and spicy but clean to the taste. Fairly light, carbonation is not too extreme. A very refreshing, thirst quenching veer with enough going on to keep you interested. I feel like i could easily drink a few pints...In fact i think i will

Bottle. Pours light cloudy gold with two fingers of nice foamy head. Citrus hops and clove aroma. Light and watery with citrus, banana, and clove flavor. Finishes dry.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle at the Bloomington Beer Festival. Poured gold with a near white head. Aroma was sweet with yeast notes, bring out a sweet grain or sugar cookie note. Flavor was sweet as well with a distinct yeast flavor and a dry finish. A bit sweet for my liking.

Strykzone (6632) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2009
This beer pours a cloudy golden and is just a bit dirty looking. An aroma that is fruity, yeasty, and funky. This is a beer that is full of zest. Plenty of fruit, yeast, and sourness. Again, funky. Nice and dry. So very good.

blankboy (7172) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2009
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a slightly hazy, bubbly gold with an average size somewhat-lasting fluffy white head. Slightly sweet aroma of banana, yeast and light spices. Mild, yeasty flavour along with light spices, sweet malt, wheat and banana (too much banana for me, but any banana is too much for me). Average bodied. A decent Hefe, though a bit too sweet and banana-ey for me but thatís a personal preference and not a knock on the beer.

bottle: a very good hefeweizen. Hazy orange, thin white head. bubbly and good. Smells of banana and spicy cloves. Tastes similar, nice balance of paper hops.

Bottle. 12 oz. Pours transluscent golden with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of hay, wheat, hops, and lemon. Moderate to light bodied. Weak mouthfeel. Loose, clean finish. Decent hefeweizen.
