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.

Wow. Just wow. Easily the best American-made hefe there is. The mouthfeel was probably the kicker for me- so full across the palate and challenging each and every taste bud with good banana and clove loveliness.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bottle from Siciliano’s Market, Grand Rapids under BIG recomendation from 17thfloor. I’m even drinking it out of a weiss glass Gerrit! Cloudy amber orange with medium, creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, breadiness, citrus, nice balanced hops, some clove and yeast. Flavor is wheat, citrus hops, banana, some clove, nice spiciness, medium sweetness, very dinkable. Medium, creamy body. Very nice, refreshing, really hits the spot.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2009
From the bottle pours a beautiful, glowing, hazy orange-amber colored body. Fine streams of bubbles effervesce towards the surface, sticking tight to the curve of the glass. A tall, foamy, off-white head settles in slowly to a small but dense layer. The aroma shows all the classic hefe signs, including sweet banana, bread yeast, clove, and orange peel. It smells very clean and inviting, quite fruity overall. The flavor mirrors the nose, smooth banana sweetness pairing seamlessly with spicy clove, orange, and lemon pith. The wheat profile is as fresh as can be. Above average hop bitterness lends a distinctly floral bite on the finish. The palate is both smooth and spicy, perhaps just a bit overly saccharine, with fine, tingling carbonation. Overall, a top notch hefeweizen.

nearbeer (4173) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2009
12 oz. Nearly opaque golden pear-colored with a lasting half inch head. Aroma of banana, lemon and resin. Flavor is the same mix with the resin making a nice dry finish. LIght-medium body is smooth, acidic-tingly and dry.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale, opaque gold with a pillowy white head. Wheat, yeast, hay, a little varnish, and some spice in a fairly basic nose. Medium-high carbonation with a light mouthfeel. A little lemon, yeast, dust, clove, and a bit of banana on the palate. Short finish. I found this one to be rather uninspiring. Eh.

j12601 (7955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a murky apricot color with a medium to large head the color of whipped egg whites. Spicy coriander notes, clean wheat profile, and a hint of caramel. Thin bordering on medium bodied, sweet and mild. Finishes a little bit empty. Still the best of the 6 summer-ish brews I had today, the others being SN Summerfest, Harpoon Summer Beer, UFO, raspberry UFO, and Smutty Summer Weizen.

alexanderj (3414) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle; poured a murky, dark gold/amber color with a smallish white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, and spice; slightly sweet and nice. The palate was very nice; smooth and creamy. The flavor was solid, but not great for me; and the after taste was not very good. Sweet wheat, with a bit of banana and spice. Didn’t live up to the hype for me.
