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.

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 (8595) - Grindsted, 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.

HogTownHarry (7064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle ( 12oz ). Slightly hazy yellow-gold with a fairly large fluffy white lasting head. Nice light balanced aroma - grassy and fruity. The taste follows, ever so slightly tart; a hint of earthiness to the floral/grassy bitterness, fruit sweetness is peach, pear and very light banana. Light and soft body, decently carbonated, quick finishing and just a bit of sweet fruity linger. I liked it.

Have had trouble finding this beer, but I am now very pleased I did. Bottle pour is cloudy yellow, with a foamy head that stayed thru most of the consumption. Mild carbonation is very well set for a brew such as this one. Aromas of lemon, citrus, slight sweet clove. Taste was very impressive, smooth, a little heavy in feel, notes of not-quite-ripe bananna, lemon, mild hops, and very good malts. I don’t know if I would call the flavors complex, but they all compliment each other very nicely. I do believe the open fermentation process attributes are noticeable in this brew. A very impressive, well balanced hefeweizen from a reliable brewery.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - NOV 20, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy deep golden color with a thick soapy off white head, that settles into a ring. Aroma is full of spice, yeast, banana and light citrus. Nice spice flavor up front with hints of banana and just a bit of malt. Very mild citrus bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with soft fizzy carbonation. A very nicely done beer.
