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.

Hazy yellow, some banana and sweetened lemon juice aroma. First sip is sweet like fresh bread, finishes dry and toasty. That leaves room in the glass to pour out the sediment from the bottle which creates increased density in the glass and aroma. Deeper in the sip as well with a creamier body, still fairly dry in the finish.

12oz bottle, pours a light a tangerine color with a white head. Smells like banana bread...I cant wait to take a drink. Very light feel, quite refreshing. A light banana and nutty taste, I dont usually enjoy wheat beers but this is scrumptious. This would probably be a great beer on a hot day after dealing with asshole clients all day. Surprising and delicious.

Bottle. Murky gold. Short white head. Aroma is candied fruit, bubblegum, banana, light spice and wheat. Taste is strong banana and bubblegum with lemon, wheat, yeast, light spice, candied fruit and sweet malts. Very tasty! Body is light and bubbly. Refreshing on a warm evening! Ends with more sweet malts, yeast, wheat/grains, bubblegum, banana, and light spice. Nice hefeweizen!

bottle- yum. Love this beer. Love Sierra Nevada- this beer represents everything that SN does so well- flavorful, yet understated- beers of true character- not over the top, knock you in the face elements that drown out everything else in an otherwise good beer- this has yeast driven flavor characteristics that drive the beer without overwhelming it. This was admittedly not one of my favorite styles before, but I will seek it out now.

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass Its clean, quality, and easy to drink. It has typical aromas and flavors, but its surprisingly smooth, and some would probably say its a bit light for the style.

This has to be the best American-made hefeweizen Ive ever had. Poured into a weizen glass from a 12 oz bottle. Pale, cloudy yellow with a thick, pillowy white head, and heavy carbonation. Aromas of grass and citrus. Fizzy but watery consistency. Lemon flavor with a crisp hop finish, and some lingering bitterness. This is a well-balanced hefeweizen that compares favorably to the best German examples. Id love to line this one up side-by-side with Weihenstephaner or Paulaner.

Cloves and bananas dominate this beer and I like it. Nice orange-ish color. Lovely spice aroma and the taste is great. I have had this on tap and bottled. Both are great.

Pershing (551) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours a cloudy straw color with a good size head. Strong banana aroma. Nice refreshing thirst quencher. Nice soft feel on the palate. Finally a true hefeweizen made in America.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Tasted 8/2/09. 12oz bottle. Activated pour produced two fingers of off-white head. Hazy and sedimented with a golden straw hue. Heady aromas of citrus and candy circus peanuts. Estery with a slight banana note. Medium bodied and rather soft. Silky complexion. Moderate yet tame effervescence. Good grainy cereal wheat note. Crisp finish. Trace hops. Mild spices. This is very easy on the palate! Super smooth and quenching. The banana lingers and shines in the finish. This is very nice!
