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.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 35.5 cl - batch 082014 C217:39. AROMA: wheat aroma with notes of bubblegum and some banana. APPEARANCE: dark gold color and hazy. thin white head with low retention. TASTE: faint bubblegum, banana and vanilla with a wheat background. low bitterness with a semi-sweet and wheaty finish. PALATE: medium-low body with below average carbonation. OVERALL: a not so bad german-style hefeweizen.

chucklemation (841) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Pours a golden yellow color with no foam head, just a little white lacing. Aroma is cloves and banana. Flavor is slightly sweet wheat, clove, and banana. This is okay, but probably not something I would buy again.

Clove, banana, bubblegum, grass, lemon. Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head and good lacing. Flavor similar to the aroma with a slight tang and medium body.

Good yeasty wheat beer poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Aroma of a farm in spring. Tasty.

Goldig, trüb. Geruch nach Aprikose, leicht bananig. Im Geschmack auch Hefe. Recht nett, aber auch kein Überflieger.

Tayeth (508) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2015
Sehr extremer Hefegeruch: brotig, schwach nelkig. Geschmack ebenfalls sehr hefig mit Nelke, kaum Banane. Im Nachgeschmack leicht bitter, aber auch nicht ganz so vollmundig, wie man vom Geruch her denken würde.

12FL OZ ($15.99 12 pack) This was a pretty good hefe. pours pretty nice. carbonation could have been a tad higher but overall this was a pleasant experience.

BOD 314/14. Pours a cloudy light amber. Outstanding head volume and retention, normal lacing. Light nose with a hint of clove and banana over biscuit with a light airy touch of citrus notes, possibly orange. Medium body that is almost creamy. Perfect carbonation that starts with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a prickly explosion in the finish that imparts a nice little snap. The flavor profile is world class. Bold in intensity, very complex and balanced to perfection. It begins with a blend of flavors that separate into the finish. A light tart biscuit sweetness arrives first, then banana, bubblegum, lemon/orange, wheat and yeast. Underneath is a clove presence that continuously increases in intensity and dominates the finish. Clove lingers in the somewhat dry finish that is also a bit tart.

Fantomasus (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw with a nice head of tightly packed white bubbles. I don’t give fives for appearance very often but, for this style, it’s nearly perfect. Aroma is lean and fresh: hay, floral, basement aromas, and very light doses of clove, cooked vegetables, ginger, and cough drop. Taste is near balanced with just a slight nod to sour. Thin watery palate with a quick bitter burst finish. Surprised at how good this is!

beerbastard (795) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy pale straw color with little head. Hop aromas compete with the banana, clove, which are all mild. Flavors are laid back. A mix of Bavarian Hefe flavors with a touch of lemons and a slight tartness. Very refreshing, and a nice palate. Not quite up to the true German style, but I would buy more.
