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.

Sampled on 7/2/2009. This Hefeweizen pours a moderately cloudy orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is light malt, banana, clove and some lemon. A medium to full bodied Hefeweizen. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots of banana and clove, with a nice touch of pineapple. Lively carbonation. There is a very appealing softness to this beer as well. Nice touch of yeast as well. Nice balance. Excellent summer beer. Glad this one will be a regular beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Holy crap this beer blew me away! Good aroma. Biscuit, light malt and just a hint of lemon...very little clove or banana. Pour was a nice cloudy light orange with lots of swirling bubbles and a one finger white head. Taste was extremely crisp and refreshing. Here is where the trademark banana flavor comes in. There is a yeasty bite that is complemented by the strongest (and for me best) carbonation Iíve had in some time. This beer is great on so many levels. This will be my 2009 July 4th Fireworks beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3333) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Frenchyís in Woodland, CA. Spicy, peppery, lemony aroma with some metallic hops. Pretty nice aroma. Modestly hazy golden body with a huge frothy white head. This leaves good lacing. Spritzy, lemony flavor to start before a little banana and mostly doughy, biscuity malts take over. Light metal later on. Very drinkable and palatable. They did a good job with this one.

3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle. Turbid and cloudy honey gold colored body with a fine-bubbled white head. Nose is soft and delicate banana, dry pineapple and solvent/hefeweizen yeast... wonderfully aromatic. Soft but crisp, chewy and frothy. Could use a little more fullness in the finish, but overall itís delicious, uncomplicated and agreeable.

Pours cloudy orange-yellow with thick fluffy head. Aroma is a bit fruity but a lot of yeast. Velvety on the palate. Flavor is some banana but not much else. Good beer overall.

m4rest88 (385) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Really good beer! Pours with a murky, yellow hue, with a small head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is of citrus, barnyard, yeast, light-floral and alcohol notes. Flavor is of flowers - daisies?, lots of yeast, with a bready ending - rye? Watery mouthfeel with light carbonation.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is deffinatly clove with some vanilla and banana. Flavor is is a bit more malty with some yeast and again some cloves. Deffinatly a summer quencher. A little light in the flavor department but this is another well done beer from sierra nevada.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Iíve been really excited about this one. Pours classic hefe, cloudy straw color with a great tangy nose of banana and clove. Flavor is really well-rounded wheat/ fruit and classic bubblegum towards the finish. Really starts to shine when it sheds a few degrees and the fruit/clove/yeast/bubblegum mingle and really shine. Occasional touches of the SN hops. Awesome. First american wheat Iíve had that was even good, much less outstanding. Iíll buy a lot more of this. I think it lives up to the substantial hype.

markwise (4501) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2009
This is summer in a freaking glass! Pours a beautiful hazy hefe yellow with a nice white head. Nose is bread, orange, citrus, banana, and clove. Flavor is very similar with some sweetness to it. Some fizz in this medium-bodied beer. Finishes clean and somewhat bready, but excellent example of this style. Lawnmower beer- liquid summer. Awesome beer for this season.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Really nice aroma of strong clove and some banana, soft wheat notes too. Pours hazy yellow orange with a nice fluffy head. Lots of nice flavors of banana and clove, some vanilla, a touch of citrus and wheat malt in the back end for a quenching aspect. Smooth body with nice live carbonation. Insanely drinkable. Will buy much more of this.
