vyvvy (6249) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Pours clear light yellow with a small white head. Aroma is smooth clean malt - reminds me of a premium lager with hints of sweet corn. Medium body with adequate carbonation. Starts syrupy sweet, but not heavy enough to be cloying. The malt presence also makes itself known. Finish has some spicy hops with a bit of sharpness and bits of sourness. A good beer, but nothing too exciting.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle: Straw in color, ever so slight haze, moderate white foamy head, light lacing, even lighter carbonation.   Sweet malty nose, grassy as well.   A bit of sweetend hay or straw too.   Clean pale malt up front, grass/straw emerges at the back.   This one is very crisp and clean.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I’d go so far as to say its bigger than other examples.   Lingering sweet grass on the finish.   I enjoyed this more than I thought I was.   Great session beer, at 5.3%.

06.06.06 Half liter swing top, the label on my bottle doesn’t say ’hell’ as it does in the picture here, but image is the same. _Production Number 250000_ <!-- br --> Palest of straw colors is this brew, with a medium sized but surprisingly steadfast head of streakily lacing white bubbles. The aroma is a pleasure, full of mild touches of honeysuckle, rising dough, and faint caramel over sweet apples. The flavor is surprisingly full to me, truly tied to the mouthfeel, and expressly sent about the palate, showering the mouth with sweet and joyous springtime flavors of honey, sweet wheat, and more dough. Banana emerges with temperature and there’s a tart bite near the finish that keeps it refreshing where one could find it beginning to seem sweet. Throughout the sip, effervescence is soft but present. Well done stuff that I’m glad I didn’t dismiss at the beer store.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pint bottle with nifty fliptop. Poured a pale yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of mellon rind, honey, and dough. Flavor is lightly sweet throughout with some honey and wheat. The flavors are good, but they’re quite weak. Light bodied, agreeable texture, lively carbonation.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2006
Impressions from a makeshift Canadian keller:
-A thin skin of foam veils the clear, deep golden.
-Creamy plantanes and feeble straw make up an attractive aroma.
-Banana esters and milky supplements are well-integrated to the dry hay.
-A soft, pillowy body even carries some caramel the sweeten the deal.
-The subtle, supporting hop bitterness, doesn’t detract from the fact that this one tastes like, strangely enough, half a weizen.

Bottle; no date.

Taster at Binny’s, Orland Park. Interesting, but not distinguishable from any regular beer. Pale lager color.Taste has a pronounced sharpness and a slight fruity overtone that shows some ale yeast and hard water at work, though. I’ll have to get a whole bottle and give it a fuller appreciation.

Kellerbier is one of my favorite styles and when I come across one I don’t pass up the chance to try it. This one was bready and malty the way that I like it.

Dorqui (2220) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 12, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Compact and friable head; good persistence and adhesion. Yellow pale color, much limpid and with a good fizz. Fresh, flowery and enough alcoholic scent. Rather prickly taste with light features of weiss bier. Light notes of wine cellar, must and withered grape. Balanced and stinging end, agreeable but without marvel.

Perhaps because it came all the way from Austria.. I detect a small amount of the skunk =( Otherwise, nicely balanced between malty sweetness and some hop flavor which i can’t quite identify, plus a sort of metallic flavor. I wouldn’t get it again, but mostly I got it for the swing-top bottle ;)

Little light wheaty aroma. Not much hops at all but easy to drink and not too malty. Not complex, with a slightly sweet finish.
