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.

Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with a bit of haze and strong carbonation. Aromas are of mild banana, green (somewhat minty) hops, vanilla, and a bit of bubblegum. The banana elements take on an additional citrus complexity in the mouth, along with more soapy Thrills bubblegum and a bit of clove and hops. Light bodied and refreshing.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 12oz Bottle. The Pour was a hazy amber yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white foamy head that lasted throughout and produced fair streaky lacing. The aroma was a light grain malt and a mild doughy yeast with notes of banana, citrus (lemon), a bit of coriander and a hint of vanilla. The taste was slightly bitter and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus pretty much throughout, with the finish having a slight spiciness towards the end. The flavor was short lived with a mild citrusy yeast taste fading quickly from the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a really good Hefeweizen, with a nice creamy yeasty taste and a good drinkability. This is a brew that I will definitely drink again, especially on one of those extremely hot summer days...

Bottle, gave a cloudy sandy-orange pour with a white fluffy head, glass of beer reminds me of a creamsicle, left some nice lacing on the sides of the glass, aromas of ripe banana sweetness, lemon and orange citrus, wheat, faint spice and bazooka gum fragrances in the background, flavors are similar to the aromas, creamy mouth feel, a nice and easy drinking beer.

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2009
Pours a hazy yellow-gold. Aroma is of sweet banana. Flavor is malty with strong hints of banana, corriander, and clove -- which gives a nearly chai taste. Palate is creamy and velvety. Very enjoyable, though a little sweet. The mixture of banana and clove makes for a fascinating taste, though a little unbalanced on the banana side.

12oz bottle. Color is a hazy yellow with average carbonation and a thin tight head. Aroma of banana. This brew has a light medium body that goes down easy giving a light banana flavor, some coriander and clove. Its a fairly good Hefe but not great.

am in a phase of my beer adventures where I don’t buy the same beer twice when I go to the beer store... I have bought a six pack of this beer 4 times already. This is the beer that should restore our faith that american brewers can make hefe’s. This was stunning.... Smells of clove and banana. Pours a very cloudy dark yellow with a fantastic white head. Simply the best medium body and carbonation of any session summer ale I have had. Crisp and clean on every sip or guzzle. Flavor was mild and sweet with spice and banana. Quite Herby and spice and delicious.. I hope this is a year round product from SN

Bottle. Murky pale golden body with a fizzy white head that slowly diminishes. Nice aroma, though not overly strong, of banana, clove, lemon, toasted grain, bubblegum with a hint of sulphur. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The finish is lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter with a nice tartness at the very end. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. I’ve had several of these in the past few weeks and am tasting this one side-by-side with a Weihenstephaner. It is holding is own for the most part though not quite on par — the aroma is a bit weaker as is the body. Still, this is a refreshing, flavorful, well-made hefe.

TizzleJizzle (652) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Wonderful aroma of coriander and citrus orange peel. This beer poured a cloudy unfiltered golden color with tremendous head and lacing. It tasted as good as it looked with notes of banana, spice, and clove. Very refreshing and lively on my palate. This is the best German hefeweizen I’ve ever had! Near flawless score for superior craftsmanship.

Bottle. Pours a yeast clouded hazy golden with a creamy bubbly off-white head. Leaves a wide swath of white lacing. Lots of yeast in the bottle to swirl and dump in. Aroma is rich with notes of clove and banana, some sweet bubblegum. Flavor is not as rich asd the aroma, but mildly conveys a yeast rich bready character with lemony tart notes being more prevalent. Pretty nice and refreshing. Finishes tartly bitter that fades and lingers lightly. Full carbonation.
