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.

Cloudy dark orange color with a decent initial head. Nice aroma full of banana and spices with a similar taste. Full of flavor but not sickening. Very good hefe.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Wheat, banana, clove, and bubblegum aroma. Wheat,banana, clove, bubblegum and lemon flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Clove and wheat finish. Solid.

CapFlu (4524) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Lastin foamy white head atop a cloudy Amber brown body. Nose is sweet, tonic and wheats. Nice mellow mouthfeel, more German malt presence - as I would have expected an American Wheat. I suppose the Kellerweis should have been a giveaway. Somewhat light on the bubblegum - but it's a smooth and easy drinking Hefeweizen. Sampled at the Moon Under Water.

(Bottle). Aroma of sweet malt, wheat and yeast. Taste of wheat, malt, yeast and citrus. Dominant carbonation. Sweet and a sticky aftertaste. To sticky sweet!

Flaska på hamnmästaren - väldigt ljus och doftar av skumbanan och smakar väldigt mycket skumbanan. Len i känslan

Tselloufc88 (134) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Nice cloudy appearance. Aroma if clove, banana. A touch of vinegar too. Tasty, pretty ripe banana dominated taste with a touch more bitterness than your usual hefe. Slightly sour. Good mouthfeel though, still good. Decent.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours cloudy gold with a white head. Taste banana, sweet, wheat. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2014
The appearance fuses an opaque golden color with a large, pillowy white head that fades fast. The aroma blends wheat, banana, and a hint of green apples, and the taste is slightly sour and slightly sweet with a heavy wheat flavor being present. The thick texture, medium body, and soft carbonation aren’t anything special or wild, but they do help support the flavor that comes through. The finish has a slightly grainy flavor, but it does fade into a nice sweet thickness on the tongue over some time.

weordie (20) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
A cloudy orange appearance on the pour with a good, foamy head. A beautiful orange flavour with a malty finish. I could easily drink quite a few of these.

Case (245) - GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Pours pale yellow with medium white head. Aroma of bread, citrus, banana, very plain. Taste is more of the same, with excessively high carbonation. Even the cheapest Hefeweizen in Germany has more flavor than this.

This must be an acquired taste by Americans for a fizzy, candy Weis beer. It doesn’t compare with anything traditional in the Bavarian Weizen family. Sierra Nevada has done a good job in marketing to the taste of the coeds in Chico. And this one is an American invention.
