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 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!

eduardovl (1353) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2016
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. I’m not particularly a big fan of Weiss beers but I can recognize a great one. Sierra Nevada not disappointing here...

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Banns nutty Belgian yeast aroma and flavor. Taste has a slight bitter yeasty finish. Earthy wheat. Slight sweet banana fruity yeast flavors. Nice amount of body. Solid beer overall. Bit of a lagerish funk in the finish but mild. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2016 From Uvinum. BB 31 March 2016. In Bavaria weiss glass. After dinner. Good but was expecting something more special from sierra nevada. Classic but not much banana taste. A bit acidic. Maybe it was a bit in bad state?
