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.

I think it came up a little short of being an excellent representation of a hefeweizen but didn’t come across as a wheat. I don’t like wheat and love Hewe’s so I feel I’m the perfect critic for this beer. So take my advice and grab a six’er of Kellerweis. DO IT!

Sweet lemon and gingerbread aromas. Some clove, and a little spiciness. Golden color, slightly opaque. Flavors of banana bread, cloves, some lemon, some cream. Palate is pretty rich and creamy with a nice sweet and lightly bitter duration. Nice hefe.

Pour is a hazy orange yellow body beneath an inviting creamy white head. Bananas and clove, just true to style. American brewers (exclude New Glarus), take note, this is how to brew a hefeweizen. This is pretty spot on and rivals many of the German counterparts. At this price point, this IS one of the best domestic beers you can buy. Excellent stuff!

Sampled at the Denver Brew Fest. Pretty solid. Nice nose of bananas and fruity esters. Flavor is just as good. Really dug it. Excellent hefe.

Holtguy (124) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Banana-like beer with a bit of spiciness. The aroma, sour and rotten, turned me off and really impacted the enjoyability of this beer. The flavor was smooth and nice, and I probably could have liked it more. But, ooooh that smell.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Hazy and opaque yellow with a dense, off-white head. Very sweet banana and yeast in the nose. Medium body, sweet banana and yeast again - no real tartness or phenols. A mild, smooth and pleasant Hefe, but I’m not sure I understand what all the fuss is about. 100709

Gethinbeer (2194) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
Diolch Mr JoeMcPhee for this bottle. Nice hazy orange colour with a thin white lace. Fruit aroma with hints of herb, wheat, banana and clove. Smooth texture yet leaves a tingle on the tongue. Strong influence of banana in the flavour , hint of spice. Nice beer and the best hefe I’ve had in a while. Solid beer.

cheap (4172) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Yeasty aroma with some sour smells. Swirling hypnotizing sediment wheat beer pour. Fairly well mannered wheat spice beer initially. Just a thin head. Decent wheat beer character, fun and interesting. Taste grows on you. Becomes even more mannered as the session continues. Very nice creamy carbonation. Some bitterness builds toward the end of the session. Over all good beer experience.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and grain, light flowers for the hops, moderate musty basement for the yeast, with hints of banana and clove. Head is small, frothy, white, with a scant amount of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky yellow/amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter, and a toush sour. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery yet a litttle slick and has a soft carbonation. A little middle-of-the-roadish, but still a well crafted German Hefeweizen.
