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.

Ahhh... finally got my hands on some kellerweis. This was sold out at all the stores around here but I finally found some and picked up two six packs. Much better than other hefe’s I have had. A little foamy but in a good way. I love how the taste is nice and balanced and not overpowered by bananas. This one doesn’t taste like babyfood as some of the other Hefe’s can. Nice spices, wheat, lemon zest and banana. Great summer beer for the BBQ.

Pours hazy yellow with thin white head. Aroma is tart and fruity. Taste is very smooth and flavorful, a nice example of a domestic hefeweizen. Very nice example.

Golden with a light haze. It’s fairly plain but tastes okay. Light hoppy finish.

Date: July 23, 2015... Glassware: Ayinger willibecker... Occasion: well pump replaced, and a tan replacement scheduled for tomorrow--time to drink... Appearance: golden yellow body is murky as a muddy river; ballooning, cratering off-white head leaves maze-like pattern of lacing .... Aroma: intense clove and banana, as expected; some fruity esters from the yeast make for an alluring, if not unique, hefeweizen ... Palate: lively, swirling, creamy body; bombards the tongue with activity, and suggestive of a surprising wheat complexity ... Taste: big, full bouquet of clove, banana, bubblegum, and secondary flavors of apple, pear, lemon grass and ginger--quite a stable of favors.... Overall: Sierra Nevada continues to impress with its portfolio of beers--they have top fermenters locked down, and now the wheat world is served notice that a refreshing, formidable, complex wheat is in the mix now....

Optisch leider nicht die Bombe, überhaupt kein Schaum. Geruch eindeutig Banane, genau meins, Trunk süffig, süß, wieder Banane, dann erst leich bitter. Das haben die gut hinbekommen - lecker Weizen.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a cloudy orange color with a foamy head and lacing. The aroma is banana and clove. The taste is banana, spice, and biscuit. It’s creamy and smooth. This is a good one.

Bottle at home. Pour is hazy lemon with a big white head and sticky lacing. Musty, bready, lots of banana, some spice, grass notes, and dough in the aroma. Taste is big banana, some bubblegum, white pepper, herbs and bread dough with a crisp finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Refreshing on this hot summer day.

Bottle. A: Cloudy gold with a whispy white head. N: Banana, clove, peppercorn, cracker, leaves, biscuit, some cayenne even. T: Sweet and a little spicy. M: Light body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol. O: Decent stab at a German hefeweizen. I prefer Weihenstephaner.

A very average weissbier. There is absolutely nothing exceptional about this brew. The aroma is equal parts grain and spice. The pour is yellow and hazy with a thin white head. The taste is more spice and hop than malt. The finish is short and sharp. I’ve had better expressions of the style.
