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.

deyholla (9997) - 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 (6717) - 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 (7216) - 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 that’s a personal preference and not a knock on the beer.

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 (3275) - 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.
