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.

slight fruity aroma, palate was wheaty, lemon, orange rind, crisp and sweet at the same time. body filled out more as it warmed up.

Appearance: Poured from the bottle an opaque hazy golden color. Decent head. I took the label’s advice and poured 2/3, swirled the bottle, and poured the rest. Solid presentation. Smell: Distinct hef tanginess in the nose. Taste: The tangy nose carried over to the taste. There’s a refreshing crispness that borders on a tinny taste. But it doesn’t go over the line. Probably stays further from the line on draft. Mouthfeel: The carbonation levels were noteworthy with the very tiny bubbles. Drinkability: Not as complex as some other Hefs I’ve had (despite what the label says) but the Kellerweis is a solid, straight forward representation of the style. I’d have no problems recommending this to a friend that enjoys a better than average Hefeweizen.

Served in a 12 oz bottle. Aroma- clove nose, phenolic, notes of citrus. very pleasant. Appearance- golden yellow color, bright white head. Taste- very good! great blend of clove flavors, with banana, hints of vanilla. very smooth and drinkable. nice carbonation gives it a light body. Palate- light body, lively carbonation. slight sourness in the finish. Overall, a great beer on a warm summer’s eve. would go great with fish, fruity foods. a very good american version of the style.

Pours an opaque yellow, a shade slightly darker than the bottle’s label. Accompanied by a sizeable white foam head. Aroma is of banana and citrus. Honey, clove, orange peel and other spices. Thin texture without much carbonation. A pretty unique hefe, but not really my type of brew. Reminds me faintly of Duvel or Golden Monkey, probably due to having similar spices. In my opinion this beer would greatly benefit from a fuller body and higher alcohol content.

Hazy orange color, decent creamy white head. Strong bubblegum and banana aroma. Wheaty, bubblegummy flavor. Smooth palate. Sweetish hefeweizen. Quite German, not much "American".

It poured a hazy golden liquid with a small white foam. Smell and taste of foam banana. Sweet and medium smooth.

12oz. Aroma is full of wheat (both malted and unmalted) and a little banana. When drunk there’s a slight acid sourness and just noticable hop bite to balance the round wheat/grain/earth flavor. Less bubbly then I was expecting but delicious. Yay beer!

Maddog (528) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2009
A very good Hefe. Pours a cloudy golden color and the aroma is classic German wheat: clove and yeast. The flavor is very tasty, banana, clove and yeast. Surprisingly, this is a great wheat even comparable to the German Hefe’s. A surprise from a mediocre brewery.

Overall good hefeweizen. Very drinkable with a slightly pungent mouth feel. Could detect hints of banana, cereal, nuts, and resin.

Plovmand (8312) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a big frothy white head. Aroma of banana, flowers, citrus and clove. The flavour is banana, sweet malt and clove. Didnt bring much to this style but a fair brew.
