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.

I am rather picky about my Hefes, but let me tell you, this is a well-done hefeweizen. If you disagree, you are a fucktard. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. The aroma is not quite as assertive as good German imports, but it has a nice nose of yeast and banana esters. The unfiltered body is light to medium, refreshing without being watery. Flavor of pale wheat malts, with the phenols of banana, bubblegum, and clove all melded to create a nice balance. Moderate attenuation. Clove becomes more pronounced on the finish with perhaps a small hint of European hops. I like this beer better without the yeast in the pour, which is not normal for me. I think it ruins the finish on this one. Great beer, but not the perfect Hefe for me.My ideal Hefe would have just a bit more body, bubblegum, and sweetness. However, I will be buying more of this because it’s priced just right, fresh, and in 12 ounce bottles.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy honey lemon color with a foamy white head. Very nice aroma of wheat, cloves, bananas, and yeast. Similar flavors followed by a dry citrus zest almost sour/tart aftertaste. Refreshing and light, but flavorful. Well done. Another tasty offering from Sierra Nevada,

Pours a cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma is spicy - yeast, bubblegum. Taste is banannas, bubblegum, and yeast. Reminds me of Paulaner Hefe. A good Hefe, very drinkakable beer, good for the summer time.

wineguycda (5) - Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2009 does not count
nice example of a traditional German Style Hefe from a well distributed brewery. Pretty aromas of banana, and clove. Balanced on the palate with wheat, clove and yeasty qualities. One of the best traditional hefe’s from a domestic producer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2009
12oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Nice hazy pour, very vibrant and enticing, with a creamy white head and a quite lively body. Pleasant yeasty aroma, with just a touch of expected citrus and spice. A lovely mouthfeel, and the flavor is dry rather than sweet. Well done and refreshing, even if a bit unassuming.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Sampled in a bottle. A pretty well done hefe. Not too much of an overpowering flavor, but its quality with lots of complexity. Cloudy with a good amount of head. A really nice brew.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle from Sam’s. Really cold. Pours cloudy bright yellow with foamy white head and great lacing. Big banana, clove, and lemony citrus as well as yeast on the nose. Similar, with a nicely dry palate. At $8.99/sixer, it’s looking likely this will always be on stock in my beer fridge through August. Refreshing as hell.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Opaque, golden-orange pour with a 1-finger, white head. The smell is banana and clove balanced with toasted wheat and sour citrus zest. Lots of banana and clove flavor with a healthy dose of Belgian yeast esters. Finishes with more slightly sour citrus zest. The body is slightly sticky, quite full, and has lots of carbonation. This is really an awesome widely available summer brew.

HonkeyBra (3491) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Beautiful hazy yellow gold pour with big frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, clove, some banana and citrus. Flavor is pretty good. Wheat forward, with citrus and banana notes. Some yeast and spice. Has nothing on New Glarus Dancing Man, but might be your best bet when it comes to American Hefe’s outside of WI.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours a foggy bright gold with a medium sized head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is mostly of banana. Taste is strong of pale malt with distinct notes of cloves, more subtle notes of banana and citrus. Citrus finish.
