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.

12oz bottle from Kingdom Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy amber golden color with one finger white head that settles quickly. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of banana, clove, grass, hay, spice, light citrus and lemon notes. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of banana, clove, yeast, nuts, gras,s hay, honey, some light caramel notes. Generally light to medium body with a refreshing spicy finish. Nice Hefe -- rivals some of the Germans we have had.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 20, 2009
12 oz bottle from GM Liquors. Nose of wheat, banana, and yeasty light funk. Murky yellow with a big pale yellow head. Flavor is loads of banana, light bitterness, and grainy white bread. Finish is lightly bitter with a touch of pepperiness. Great hefe, glad I can get it locally and cheap!

12oz. Pours with a big fluffy white head. A nice hazy and opaque yellow color, lots of yeast present, of course. Aroma is strongly yeasty with some banana ester and nuttiness. Creamy, yeasty flavor - banana esters abound, and it’s got a pleasant level of spiciness throughout. A smooth palate with a clean, semi-dry finish. Evidently I really liked this beer, because I downed the 12 ounces in about as many minutes. It’s wonderful for the ridiculous hot weather we’ve been having here lately. A competing hefe with the lovely Live Oak Hefeweizen, I’d say.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Bottle from Double D. Hazy banana yellow-orange with a large white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, clove and some tasty banana nut bread. Standard hefe faire with banana, clove, yeast and wheat. Pretty easy drinking and quality addition to the sierra Nevada line.

lb4lb (2224) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Pours hazy, dark orange with a white head. Smell is wheaty, and creamy. Taste is creamy, strongly wheaty and slightly fruity and citrusy. Extremely drinkable, fresh and flavorful. Rich creamy body and normal carbonation. I really like this and am glad that it is readily available for the hot Texas summer.

Aroma like whole grain banana bread (as I woud imagine it.) Pretty light mouthfeel but medium strong flavor of banana cream. Pretty nice.

12oz bottle. very cloudy opaque yellow under a large creamy white head. moderate amount of lacing. delicate wheaty, banana aroma but fairly one dimensional. the flavor opens up with banana and pink bubble gum. not too spicy though. medium-full bodied. fairly dry. creamy and smooth palate. a great german style hefe.

Hazy straw colored liquid with a slightly off-white head. Initial dry wheat and grain scents are gradually replaced with some cloves, banana and mild citrus. Solid feel with just a bit of zip behind it. Full wheat flavors with with cloves and mild citrus coming in the middle. Big yeast shot at the bottom of the bottle. HInts of the SN hopping. Very good traditional hefeweizen. I will certainly visit this one again this summer.
