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.

Aug. 13, 2009; 12 oz. bottle. Golden & hazy, with generous, quickly-dissipating head; splotchy, slip-sliding lacing. Unusually flavorful, zesty & palate-pleasing for a hefeweizen. Remains light & citrusy despite ample evidence of a malt backbone. Probably the best example of the style I’ve yet tried. Not to jinx Sierra Nevada, but this brewery never drops the ball.

Hazed golden/orange pour with fluffy head and lace. Bananas and clove on the nose. Fruity banana and clove flavor. Medium full bodied with creamy soft carbonation. A very nice drinker

Bottle. Pours a deep hazy gold with a nice fluffy white head. Banana, bubblegum, hops, caramel, cloves and a lemony smell too. Flavor is very yeasty and full of banana. Light clove notes and very small hop bite. Very well done. Cheers.

This beer was very good. Not my favorite style but this brew was true to its form. Had all the charateristics of a good hefe. ITs easy to see why it scores so high on this site. Another winner from one of my favorite breweries.

Cloudy yellow pour with a frothy big off-white head. Aroma of bananas and cloves. Flavor of bananas and cloves. Very mellow refreshing beer. Low carbonation. Easy to drink, could easily drink a 6-er in a single session. Very tasty and nice lacing.

Beerman6686 (6053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2009
This poured a cloudy yellow color with a big white head. Aroma was really nice yeast, wheat, clove and banana. Flavor was very very smooth and well blended with mainly notes of banana and spices, somewhat yeasty as well. A nice and surprising offering from SN.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish/golden body with a medium fluffy white head which suprisingly didn’t last too long. Nice bananna and light clove aroma with some wheat notes. Nice smooth body. Nice balanced malty and sweet tart finish. Really nice hefe on a hot day here in Buffalo

Kevin (2185) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 11, 2009
been enjoying this one for a bit now. honey colored with a white head. spiced clove and banana sweetness with just a bit of apple. smells like banana laffy taffy, tastes just how i expect. light sulphur, and herbal notes underneath a dominant banana sweetness. bubblegum, and finishes drier and leaves a lasting banana and clove earthy yeast flavor. well made beer that is going to keep me happy in my non airconditioned hole during the hotter days. 4 8 8 5 17

Appearance: Pours a pastel yellow gold, with tons of cloudy haze. Even though there is a lot of action going on in the body, the fluffy white head quickly disappears. Aroma: A little banana and a little breadiness. Nothing overwhelming, but very defined. Taste: Big mouthful of banana, a little sourish fruity twang, some clove, and finishes with some SN trademark spicy hopiness. Mouthfeel: Thick, almost chewy. Fizzy! Overall: I love this beer.
