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.

Solid heffy. Good balance between citrus, bubblegum and banana. Easy drinker. Biggest complaint is that the yeast was totally packed on the bottom and swirling or shaking didn’t budge the stuff. Made it seem like it was glued down which is kinda gross.

Ahhh... finally got my hands on some kellerweis. This was sold out at all the stores around here but I finally found some and picked up two six packs. Much better than other hefe’s I have had. A little foamy but in a good way. I love how the taste is nice and balanced and not overpowered by bananas. This one doesn’t taste like babyfood as some of the other Hefe’s can. Nice spices, wheat, lemon zest and banana. Great summer beer for the BBQ.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2009
2 12oz bottles, served in a tall weiss glass. Hazy golden yellow pour with a big pillowy head of off-white foam that showed some good retention. Thick, chunky lacing coated the glass. The aroma consisted of lemon, fresh oranges, graham cracker, and some mild yeast spiciness. The flavor had lightly toasted wheat, banana, light orange zest, and some very mild clove spiciness. Medium, creamy body with lightly crisp carbonation. Could have maybe used a little more spicy clove, but this was good stuff...glad to see this is going to be readily available.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle at Sheffield’s Chicago. Pours a very nice golden bronze, cloudy, fluffy head. Nose is standard Hefe, banana, light cloves and nice bready notes. On taste, the body is round and soft, taste is very well balanced with enough breadiness to pair up with the sweet notes from the esters. Very good Hefe.

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy medium yellow with a tall, lasting white head. Wheat malt aroma, little banana but there is some clove here. The flavor follows the aroma. Smooth full body. Not too bad.

Still haven’t seen this in the Knoxville area. Bottle from a sixpack located in Asheville, pours a hazy straw yellow body with an immense vanilla head. Aroma of clove, twangy wheat malt, lemon, and ripe banana. Taste mirrors the aroma. Clove, twangy wheat, lemon, banana, and some white pepper. Some freshly sliced Valencia orange notes lurk underneath. Quite good. This will probably be the benchmark for American hefs for some time to come.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Poured a turbid golden color with a one-finger tall, fizzy white head. The aroma was citrus, light yeast with some clove and other spices. The flavor followed suit with lemony citrus flavors and light clove being the prevailing flavor. Very little of the softer banana came in to play to give it needed balance. Thin, refreshing mouthfeel.

TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Pours cloudy yellow with big fluffy white head. Aroma is classic hefeweizen - lightly acidic, clove, sweet grains... Flavor is very good and clean, other people’s descriptions are good, but I’ll add that there’s a nice lingering bready flavor. Mouthfeel is foamy. Overall, a very nice beer.

Aubrey (3491) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Very well made. Cloudy yellow-gold with a bleached-white head. Smooth and soft on the tongue. Flavorful malt side had hints of white cake, wheat and biscuits. Hops were mild yet aromatic. Yeast esters were really nice, with hints of banana, lemon, clove and faint perfume. Nice balance. Pleasant beer. Seems to fit the style well.

This is an excellent beer from Sierra, very much up there with the quality of their off season hop beer. Very smooth with a great sweet taste. There is something to be said about the flavor.
