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.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle (in NZ), pours a cloudy bright gold with a foamy white head. Cloves and a little banana, a touch metallic. A grainy palate, a good moderate dryness, with a lemons, pepper and cloves. An easy drinking Hefe.

NachlamSie (3256) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2009
bOTTLE. Pours cloudy orange with a large head. Smells promising. . .lots of coriander, banana, spice, and papery hops. It’s very tasteful and delicate, not at all blunt or candied. The flavor follows up excellently. It is remarkably similar to Weihenstephaner’s classic example of the style, but doesn’t quite live up to that legen. Still, complex depth of spices, grain, lemon, banana entertain my palate. This is a surprsing offering from Sierra Nevada. I love the brewery, but often when they stray from the standard PNW approach to brewing they falter. This ,however, is win.

BelgianBeerGal (3777) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Local bottle. Very nice pour; cloudy gold colour with a thick, fluffy white head. Pleasant aroma of wheat, banana, yeast and a little spice. Great flavour too, but maybe a little thin. Nice hints of citrus though. Certainly enjoyable.

Cybercat (5054) - Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Rich, nose-filling aroma is wheaty and yeasty with just a hint of honey. It pours a hazy, appetizing amber with a fairly thick white head. Flavor is downright delicious, strongly wheaty with an undertone of yeast, a hint of citrus and just a whisper of honey sweetness. Texture is very tingly and pleasant. One of the best Hefeweizens I have ever had.

SHANER4 (491) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2009
bottle 12oz. - Poured piss yellow with thin white head. Aroma - some skunk and wheat, hope it tastes better!! Flavor - Sour lemony and wheat taste. Better than last Hefe I had but thats not saying much. Also tasted some mild banana flavor...pretty good! Palate - thin mouthfeel and has good carbonation. Finish is dry with alot of spice in aftertaste. Overall - 2nd Hefe in a row and this is far better than first, still not my favorite style but drinkable.

In the bomber bottle at the 2009 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Festival. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Has a german yeast sulphurous aroma. Very doughy yeasty flavor. Lemons and bananas. This is good, but it has too fizzy a finish to be great.
