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.

A solid hefeweizen for sure. Nice banana and clove aroma. Good wheat character. Crisp palate. Heavily sedimented. Perhaps slightly over carbonated, but in general a very enjoyable beer. And, for the price you can’t beat it.

Stop in to a Sunoco to get a pack of gum and you find this little gem on a shelf.....never seen it anywhere else. A really delicious Hefe from Sierra Nevada who I am continually impressed with, turning out large amounts of quality beer. Sweet, with subtle bananna, well balanced and spicey. Light-medium carbonation. If you find it pick up a six pack....you won’t be disappointed.

Nice cloudy light yellow color. Smells of malts and yeast with a hint of lemon. Taste is of sweeter malts with a little citrus. Has hardly any aftertaste. A pretty good brew, especially coming from a brewery that loves to use hops.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Wonderfully cloudy, straw yellow with a dense, rocky, white cap of foam. Great foam retention. Aroma is yeasty, bready, slight cloviness with a touch of lemon and banana. The flavor is citrus and clove with a sufficient amount of carbonation without being abrasive. Light on the tongue. Quite a refreshing and well designed hefe. I’m not catching the "uncommon depth and flavor complexity" though.

I picked this up at the Binny’s in Orland Park, Illinois. This is right up dm9831’s alley, and I must present him with some. It pours a hazy yellow body with a tall white head and leaves much lacing in its wake. The aroma is yeasty and bready and has loads of fresh bananas with some wheaty tartness. Very spritzy mouthfeel. The flavor is wheaty with fresh bananas, bubblegum, a dash of clove, and a touch of lemony tartness. Very well executed example of the style.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 yeah certainly worth the $8 bucks a sixer. Sweet/tart and smooth. Easy drinking moderate bosied and wel integrated. No bannanas in mine.

This stuff is delicious. Amazing aroma of bubbly gum, bananas and a hint of clove... a little bit of bready aroma but it’s o.k... Flavor is sweet, bubble gum wheaty, bananas with a nice slightly chewy mouthfeel. Great stuff!!

Ron (2889) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Bottle. Poured with a bright yellow color and hazy, with a gigantic head. The aroma is classic German with banana and yeast. It drinks with the same classical characteristics, quite effervescent and tangy on the palate. A delicious Hefeweizen. #900 7/17/2009

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Pours slightly cloudy straw color with a big white head. Strong banana aroma with some wheat, cloves and pepper. The flavor is a little underwhelming compared to the aroma, wheat with a banana aftertaste. The body is very light, good but not great.

Nice to have something a bit different from Sierra Nevada, a nice classic wheat beer, good for summer, with a distinct cloudy appearance with primarily orangy-banana-like smell and flavor. A bit of bacon drippings even! Moderate white head. Slightly thin on the aftertaste.
