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.

bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a big, foamy two inches of bright white head. Somewhat more rounded nose than many hefes- some banana and fruity sweetness, some light spicy cloves and oranges. Aroma is good, if muted. Flavor starts with a light dose of sharp clove spiciness, then moves into grainy yeast, smooth mild sweetness. Light bitterness. Some citrus notes in the flavor. Palate is crisp and actively carbonated. Overall, a good, interesting, somewhat unique hefe.

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 29, 2009
This poured a light cloudy golden color. The aroma is very bready with some lemons and hint of yeast. The flavor contains a nice hit of wheat, lemons, and some cloves. The finish is sour. Overall this would be a good session brew but nothing amazing.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 29, 2009
12oz bottle. Kind of a dark hazy yellow color. Banana, lemon aroma, it had a very creamy white head as well. Sweet, more banana and light lemon, no acidity at all, very enjoyable

Pours a hazy light golden color with a small head, nice lacing. Banana, bubblegum, and spices. Nice palate, full but not overly. Excellent.

Reviewed a 12oz bottle that pours opaque yellow/gold with a two finger white head that quickly diminishes. Full and smooth with some banana flavor up front and a touch of vanilla on the finish make this a very nice summer beer. I think it’s very well done.

crazyvin (1896) - New York, USA - JUN 28, 2009
A nice murky yelllow-golden hue with a nice whie head. Aroma had some sweet malt notes, banana, but also a nice spice profile,mainly corrainder, clove stuff like that. Flavor seemed to feature the spicyness of this brew. A akmost peppery flavor to it with a nice lemony note to balance it out. Seemed to have some grit to it which by no means was negative. A good beer.

Bubblegum, bananas, very nice and traditional german hefe flavors. Visual was as expected as well. Basically the template for how to make a german hefe in the US.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Aroma is sweet banana, wheat, and lemon. Taste is crisp hoppy lemon-wheat banana, with a surprising amount of sourness. Body is full, yet not cloying. A touch watery for a hefe, light on the spice, and heavy on the lemon and wheat with a banana accent. Finish is lingering wheat sourness and banana. Wow. Surprising.

A very nice hefeweizen from sierra nevada. I thought that it might have a little bit of a sour bite, but I was mistaken. It has a variety of complex fruit flavors, which sits very nicely in the mouth. Very enjoyable.
