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.

Pours a pillowy, lacing, white head with a hazy golden straw colored body. Smells and tastes of yeast, banana, and clove. Solid wheat beer.

aroma is ester-full with predominant note of heavy clove, bordering on smoke. deeply and darkly spicy. during a taste, the aroma broadens, revealing the sweeter side of weizen yeast, some tropical fruit. appearance is eggy, clouded and sunny. kudos for a weizen with a different sort of esters then the usual fare.

Bottle pours a desidedly orange ellow. Bige fluffy white head. Soft aroma of wheat and bubblegum and banana. Lavor is a ver nice soft combination o the above with a little bavarian spice. Soft full palatte that is lively carbonatwd but not fizzy. Delicious. I happen to be brewing a GernanHef right now and I hope it turns out something like this.

Braudog (5752) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Bottle. Poured with a bright yellow color but completely opaque and hazy, with a gigantic head. The aroma is classic Germany -- banana and yeast. It drinks with the same classical characteristics, quite effervescent and tangy on the palate. A delicious hefeweizen! (#3600, 11 July 2009)

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice cloudy golden color with a very large frothy head. Aroma of banana, cloves, and wheat. Flavor is very nice: banana and wheat dominate, but the spice is also present. Very nice medium bodied hefe. And at the price they are charging for it, it is sure to be a summer staple of mine.

Cloudy yellow pour with nice white head. Lemon and clove all over the nose. Flavor is banana with lemon zest and spice. Nice bite of yeast as well that round out a great texture. Not a style that I tend to grab, but this is good.

12oz bottle-pours a rich white head that laces and cloudy straw yellow color. Aroma is lemon/banana/clove, light malt. Taste is lemon/banana/clove, light malt/wheat, creamy. Towards medium body. Soft carbonation. Thanks butters for sharing.

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Very tasty but a little bit too far to the banana/pear side of the spectrum as opposed to the clove/yeastiness extreme, which I tend to prefer.

Nephilium (1365) - Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Nice aroma of wheat, banana, clove, and yeast. Pours a cloudy light yellow, with a huge fluffy white head. Nice crisp flavor, a bit of hop bitterness seems to pop out in the middle. Finishes long and clean. Light on the palate, and amazingly refreshing. I may have found a new favorite summer beer.

This is one of the best hefe’s I have ever laid my lips on. The beer starts with an opaque dark golden color with an extremely hazy and cloudy body. The head is huge, generous and bright white. It leaves a great amount of lacing around the glass. The nose is inticing and inviting, with notes of bubble gum, banana, cloves and spices. The body is thick and deep, but extrememly smooth and drinkable. The flavors are quite complex for a hefeweizen, with big notes of bubble gum, cloves, spices, banana, bread and yeast. The finish was a little spicy with a little more bubble gum flavor. This is definitely a top-notch hefe; one of the best.
