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.

graham515 (537) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Pours a chalky yellow into the glass with a booming white head. Aroma is unbelievably fresh hefewezen yeast. Lots of spice and banana. Excellent! Flavor is excellent wheat with a citrusy orange note. Some cereal taste. The body is exquisite. High carbonation gives this beer a spritzy body. This will be a staple in my refrigerator from now on!

thefederalist (307) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Pours a hazy straw color. Aroma is funky with lots of pungent yeast in the nose. Flavor is, well, spicy and flawless. Lots of banana and clove funk. Hefty body for a hefeweizen. Finishes dry with plenty of the aroma lingering on the pallet. I am wowed, even for SN.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle: Pours a dense, hazy gold with a sizeable white head. Nose is loaded with clove, bread dough, lemon and has a faint hint of banana. Nice carbonation/body. Taste has a bit more of a toasted malt accent to compliment the other attributes. Very smooth, well balanced with the lemon and clove notes coming through perfectly.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2009
POurs a hazy yellow. Nose is spices, yeast, toasted malt, lemon, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon. Flavor is very yeasty, wheat, lemon zest, banana, some hops, sweet malt, toasted grain. Very well done, I just am not a fan of hefes.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2009
bottle: weizen: pours a cloudy, dirty orangy yellow leaving a soapy head. Nose reveals cloves, sweets sugars, citrus. Loads of clove, yeast, spices on the front tongue... some bitters, banana at the end. Medium to high carbonation helps to rinse this clean, also a mild creamy texture. Nice brew! Surprised by SN on this one.

DrSamPHD (68) - Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a med-large head. An attractive beer. The aroma is fruity, with some yeast and banana coming through. Pretty complex taste started off by a sweet front, yeast, banana and citrus coming through. Some wheat on the back end. A fuller body and this would be a great brew. Pretty good.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange with an off-white foam. Aromas are yeast and citrus with spices. Wheat and caramel malts. Flavours are sweet grain with sweet wheat. Yeasty with light banana. Quite a lot of nuttiness. Dry on the finish. Decent.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle in the rake. Alround rating: Quite wheaty, banana is subtle, quite a bit of peppery hop character, its far too carbonated for me. I think this is a decent drink, but i think people are getting carried away when they are rating this higher than weinstephan.
