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.

Since I saw this a few weeks ago, I have been buying it as my session beer. I think I have had about a case of this so far. This stuff is great. Pours out a yellowish orange color. Smell is full of banana and a touch of hops. Taste is great, incredibly refreshing, very easy to drink (chug?) down. I hop this becomes a regular offering, because I will drink my weight in this beer. Really good stuff.

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2009 pours a cloudy pale orange, head isn’t as bubbly as i expected. smells very nice, yeasty. flavor has wonderful balance of spice, yeast, grainy earthy notes, and citrus. nice and bready. sweetness is perfect, not too much but enough there for a little zing. nothing like the regular sierra nevada lineup. really reminds me of fransiskaner. light bodied but not anything out of the ordinary for the style. believe the hype, this is top notch. apparently the fucked up economy has had no effect on the quality of sierra nevada products.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a huge, white head over a hazed golden body with good lace. Aroma is grainy with wheat, citrus and banana. Taste is wheat, vanilla, banana, light clove phenols and citrus. Medium carbonation and a dryish finish. Up there with Franconia for one of the best US produced Hefes...

crackedmachine (470) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Pours cloudy orange with a creamy head with lasting lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma leads to a spicy, slightly yeasty flavor with hints of banana. An exceptional American hefeweizen. Refreshing and perfect for the sunny months.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2009
Bottle @Track 84, Warwick, RI. Pretty good. A estery wheat beer, without the sweetness, wheat and lemon, with estery fruit (but dry fruit), refreshing. Nice.

JohnnyJ (4317) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 29, 2009
This is an excellent hefe, I am impressed. Cloudy orange gold, creamy white head. Good lacing, and wisps of yeast. Banana, citrus, grass, lemon zest, sweet biscuity malt, clove, and some foral hops. Silky, creamy mouthfeel. Im not usually big on this style, but I could drink a lot of this.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2009
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 (2603) - 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.
