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.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Cloudy opaque golden color with a massively foamy white head because I stirred up the yeast on the bottom of the bottle. A yeasty honey aroma dominated by a citrus orange smell. A slight grassy hops aroma comes out in the end. The taste is undoubtedly full of active yeast and wheat that is tempered by a salty lemon character. The palate is a heavy velvet like texture. While an interesting beer the freshness and abundant west coast hops that makes Sierra Nevada Ale so famous are not well displayed in this beer style.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Cloudy yellow pour with a 3/4 inch white head. Aroma is subtle banana with a hint of citrus. Flavor is bananas and cloves wit ha grainy wheat note and a liberal dash of yeast. Full-bodied, refreshing and good. A light, crisp finish. Nice.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 3, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, tarnished golden color; medium-bubbled off-white head with good retention and solid lacing; nice pour. Solid amounts of cloves in the nose, with bready yeastiness and overripe bananas following; a nice citrus acidity as well; still, doesn’t really dig in with the dense chewy breadiness and yeast of the best... Medium mouthfeel: lively carbonation; nice, lively citrus acidity and bready yeast and cloves upfront; still, the carbonation and the citrus never quite relax enough to let out the chewy malts and yeast character underneath; very pleasant, very drinkable, and just a touch standoffish from the acidity and the carbonation. Medium finish: toasty, bready notes and lingering cloves.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle pours cloudy golden color with off white head. Aroma is banana and clove. Tingly mouthfeel from the high carbonation. Flavor is spot on for this style. Banana and spicy cloves dominate. This is a great brew.

KyotoLefty (7452) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2009
Deep golden-orange color. Cloudy. Rich wqheat malt aroma with banana and spices. Very yeasty and brady nose. Sweet, rich wheat malt; very fruity and spicy. Flavorful and thick. Finally a great American hefeweizen!

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 Pour from the 12oz. bottle: Aroma and taste is typical of a Hefe- liquid banana bread, clove, wheat, orange peel and a hint of pepper. Pretty good, but not comparable to Weienstephan. Drinkability: Binge worthy. Rebuy: Sure. #107 on 02092009, DG.

( 12oz bottle) Pours a hazy maize body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, grass, clove, and light sulfur. Flavor of wheat, banana, light pepper, clove, and breadiness.

Tricountybeer (167) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy medium yellow with a tall, lasting white head. A wonderful Hefe. The flavor had lightly toasted wheat, banana, which is very distinct ( Awsome )

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Holy overrated beer batman. Poured a foggy gold with a a fluffy head. Nose is of green apple peel and not much else. Taste is somewhat bland, standard banana notes, no real flavors from grains, no other real yeast flavors, finishes with a lemon zing reminiscent of sorachi ace or glacier hops.

I’m not the biggest hefe fan, but I think this one is better than average. It is light and refreshing, but complex enough to have some interesting flavors.
