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.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Poured cloudy yellow with almost no head and what there was went away fast. That was disappointing. Checked the expiration date and it was passed. Some lacing. Nose is inviting, traditional. Yeast, banana, a little spice,some bubblegum. It’s very aromatic so I’m hopeful. Taste follows the nose all the way. Low carbonation, smooth, a little citrus hops, a little pepper. Thin and weak. No legs. Frustrating because it had all the right ingredients but it was half hearted and lifeless. A good hefe should be turbid and uplifting. I expected more.

djoeye (3439) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2016
Hazy orange golden body, huh head. Aroma; grassy hops, meadow spices, sweet malts, maybe coriander. Taste; sweet malts, grass, banana note, meadow spices, fruit notes - leading to a fruity sweet finish. Nice on palate. Overall a tasty hefe, young banana, fresh, likeable. But germans will complain about low head of course. [35,5cl.btl 4.8%abv]

drpimento (3076) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Very good, solid effort recreating a Bavarian Hefeweizen. Aroma is traditional for this style. Flavor and body are very close, but just a tad lacking - in complexity and depth. Still, really good stuff.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2016
0,33 bottle at home - Aroma has banana, clove and slight american hops. On the flavor you get much of the same. It’s an okay attempt at a hefeweizen. It would probably be better if the bottle was fresh.

Sigmund (6641) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2016
355 ml bottle, at Peter Gift, Aarhus, Denmark. Deep golden colour, no head at all in the shiny glass, probably due to the pub’s ignorant use of rinse aid / rinse agent. The aroma and flavour have some of the typical notes of a hefeweizen (banana and cloves), but this beer was far from the best h.w. I’ve had (and I love hefeweizens). Fizzy mouthfeel.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Hazy orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, and citrus. Taste is floral, citrus and straw. Creamy texture.

I think the body on this beer is really nice. There are heavy banana aromas that dominate the overall experience. A very good hefe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured in improper glassware (tulip, as I didn’t have a weizen available. Huge white, soapy head. Dull straw color. Murky Flint water. Getting a lot of clove in the aroma. Yeasty, clove, and a bit of banana. Watery finish. Not really a fan.
