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.

Draft @ source. Hazy yellow 3 finger Creamy head. Smells fantastic. Banana, wheat and pineapple. Wow. This is fantasy. At the source. Dense milky mouthfeel. Really great on site. Whoa. Could drink this daily

Pours a little hazy golden body with a thin head. Nice malty aroma. Well balanced creamy taste with a clear wheat character.

Been a long time since Iíve had a Keller or a hefe but itís Sierra Nevada so I think Iím in good hands. Looks like it should. Mushy mouth, very dry, soft and mellow. Soft, careful yeast with barely a hint of spice, nearly invisible lemon, weak banana. Highly mellow yet very satisfying.

Fairly clear Hefeweizen, with all of the delicious ester profiles present. The sweet tasting clove, banana, and fruity flavors stay strong all the way through and the body is expectedly silky smooth although, a little watery. This Hefeweizen doesnít seem to dry my mouth out as much as the true German ones. Very nicely done by Sierra Nevada. Definitely a top 50 for the style.

Light traditional hefeweizen aromas. Hazy with healthy head. Silky body. A nice example but the finish changes to an unpleasant malt flavor that throws off the balance and doesnt taste very good. An ok brew but very overrated scores here.

willisread (2277) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle from Tankaya. Pours a hazy gold with a finger of white foam. Banana bread nose with spicy clove and some grassy notes. Slightly creamy mouthfeel and sweet, but still good bitterness on the finish. Some spicy warmth as well as a bit of light lemony tartness. Enjoyable Hefe, but maybe not as good as any of the Japanese local ones here. Still a nice effort from Sierra Nevada.

Aroma is typical weisse yeast, with banana and perhaps more citric than usual. Mouth follows the nose, with some clove. Very refreshing. Surprisingly good!

355ml bottle served in a pint glass. Enjoyed in a flat room in a Hong Kong business trip. Pours a very cloudy yellow color forming a solid and very creamy white head with good retention and lots of soapy lacings left in the glass. Great nose: Strong notes of wheat, pale grains and phenols. Banana and cloves but not very sweet. Notes of honey and sweet bread. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of wheat and sweet pale malts. Banana-Cloves classic phenols can be felt in the mouth too. Very light to no bitterness as expected. Very smooth mouthfeel. Light but very creamy body. Wheat in the aftertaste. Excellent drinkability. Iím not particularly a big fan of Weiss beers but I can recognize a great one. Sierra Nevada not disappointing here...

Bottle, probably not so fresh. Pours clean yellow with a small white head. Weak aroma of cloves and malt. Taste is cloves, wheat malt, sweet. Light body, fizzy.
