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 from BevMo. Hazy orange in color. Nice white head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Smells are all there. Rich mouthfeel. Grainy flavor. Somewhat spiced with a bit of yeastiness. Pretty good.

desurfer (1211) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Hazy yellow body, frothy white head. Spicy aroma. Flavor of banana, clove, and yeast. Very complex and inviting. I think this is worth the hype; an exceptional hefe.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours a great golden cloudy color and a huge white billowing head. Aroma is very pronounced. A lot of banana and yeasty notes in the aroma. Taste is both complex and light. Flavor is crip, but has several layers to it. Lots of wheat and yeast traditional flavors, but banana and mild citrus backbody makes this pretty enjoyable. The best hefeweizen I’ve had.

Guerde (1162) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2009
(bottle) Pours a light hazy gold with a large white head that possesses a meringue-like consistency and retains nicely. Aroma is strong of banana, light vanilla, some bread, along with a nice twang of wheat and clove. The flavor is banana and vanilla as well, with a bit of clove, some breakfast cereal, the characteristic twang of wheat, and a bit of lemon right before the finish. The flavors are all there, but they are far more subtle when compared to Dancing Man. Instead of being crisp, the finish lingers on with some flavors of stale bread, yeast and grain which is a shame. The mouthfeel is perfect, full and creamy with spritzy carbonation. All in all, an above-average hefe that would be great if it didn’t display that undesirable finish.

Is there something about Sierra Nevada that RBers just root for? As if we just desperately want them to make awesome beer? I think so. I think they did a superb job here. I agree with the RB consensus that this is just so damn solid. A great mix of the basic German Hefeweizen flavors, but most importantly, backed by a really strong body. There is just a wonderful fullness to this beer.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12oz bottle, no date. Cloudy golden with a one finger creamy white head, fair retention. Good amounts of bananas, clove, wheat, and hints of cinnamon. Nothing too spicy or too sweet, and no rancid wheat things going on. The flavor adds some crisp lightly tangy lemony wheat notes. Minimal bitterness in the wheaty finish. Moderate prickly carbonation with a light to medium body. If this is a year round beer, my camping trips just got better. This rating doesn’t do the beer justice--probably my second or third highest rated hefe--it still isn’t as good as Dancing Man, in my opinion.

hombrepalo (1819) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12oz bottes six pack. This has to be one of my top summer bers, very enjoyable and drinkable in larger quantites. Pours a shade of orange with edges of gold... a thick white cap of head and sheets of lace. Aroma is thick with ripened bananas, cloves, lemon & tangerines. Medium light body with moderately light carbonatonand a light, crisp finish. overall, a great summer brew. .

Sierra Nevada Kellerweis is a cloudy wheat colored beer with a thin white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a spicy clove aroma (oh, and banana). It’s light bodied and smooth; a little watery at the finish. The banana/clove flavor is prominent in the taste, but it’s not the only thing going on. There is a nice, fruity, wooden bitterness with almost a hint of cassis. This is an ideal Hefeweizen.

Gold. with a little haze. Big white head. Aroma is big banana, then yeast, lemon, and spice. Nice and smooth, clean and very easy to drink.

dwyerpg (4508) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Lots of banana in the aroma and even more in the flavor. This is certainly in the German style, but it’s so over-the-top in banana that it’s just too much for me.
