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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 12oz Bottle. The Pour was a hazy amber yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white foamy head that lasted throughout and produced fair streaky lacing. The aroma was a light grain malt and a mild doughy yeast with notes of banana, citrus (lemon), a bit of coriander and a hint of vanilla. The taste was slightly bitter and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus pretty much throughout, with the finish having a slight spiciness towards the end. The flavor was short lived with a mild citrusy yeast taste fading quickly from the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a really good Hefeweizen, with a nice creamy yeasty taste and a good drinkability. This is a brew that I will definitely drink again, especially on one of those extremely hot summer days...

LLaurin (292) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2016
Pours hazy with straw colour and a small wheat nose. Taste is also very typical wheat and very light citric notes. Palate is typical weiss Bier - rather short but agreeable.

djoeye (3441) - 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 (6643) - 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.

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
