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. Pours a hazy pale golden with a white top. Nice aroma of wheat, banana-esters, dough and pale malts. Taste is lightly sweet at first but with a very well balanced finish. Light pungent notes from the wheat and a very subtle bitterness. Fairly light bodied and drinkable. A fine hefeweizen on the lower abv-scale.

RRistow12 (389) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is grass, grains, yeast, herbally and floral with some sweet fruity notes. Taste is moderately sweet with flavors or banana, bubblegum, yeast, wheat, floral. Pretty good hefeweizen but not quite as good as some of the best german hefeweizens. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Irregular, just off-white head over lively carbonated unclear yellow to orange-golden beer. Clove, allspice, Jamaican pepper, other spices; some faint banana and citrus. Dry-spicy (nutmeg too?), light bitterish onset but then converting to light acidic wheat and fruitesters, fusels. Very carbonated; light to medium bodied, faint wheatslickness, refreshing. Nothing but very classical Hefeweizen - maybe a bit lighter MF.

freretoc (1070) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 13, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 35.5cl, couleur blanche-blonde trouble, mousse épaisse et bonne effervescence, une bière avec les goût de malabar et de banane continuité sur le pain blanc et fin de bouche sur une pointe d’acidité.

3 finger fluffy white head. Nice lacing and pale gold color. Aroma is clove, banana, yeast and pepper notes. Light to medium body that is silky smooth w/ moderate carbonation. Very tasty flavors of banana, clove and general sweetness from the wheat. Also getting a slight bit of belgian yeast/funk flavor. Detecting other flavors in there but it is complex and difficult to discern. But very pleasing in general. You get a slight peppery spice toward the end and the beer finishes somewhat dry. Excellent session beer at only 4.8%!! My new go to hefeweizen!!

Renobob (1129) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 12, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 355ml. Bière plutôt bien faite mais rien d'exceptionnel non plus. Les allemands font bien mieux. Correcte mais sans plus.

Bottle @ Koht, Tallinn. Another checkmark for 1001 beers book :). Well balanced, light floral-citrus aroma. Good.

TedE (397) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2015
355ml bottle into weizen glass. Subtle wheat/hop nose. Pours a translucent honey/caramel colour with the typical towering white head. Quite watery and lightly bitter. Finish has distant banana and hop notes. Refreshing but not involving.

demannu (139) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Aroma of yeast (makes me think of raw bread dough), citrus, and clove with faint banana. Taste follows the nose. Citrus, clove, and grain. Respectable American production of a German classic at a really good price.
