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.

Smells really nice with notes of wet grains, bananas, spicy tart, lemon. Nothing unpleasant here, everything seems balanced. So is the taste, juicy and tarty, following the nose. Creamy, with lemons, yeast, but nothing out of place. This beer feels balanced and refreshing and it's up there with the best hefes in the business.

Bottle from Antenna America. Pours a bright pale gold, clouds up well with final yeasty pour, lasting white foam coating the sides. Lovely aroma of bananas, spices, creamy wheat, a hint of bandaid phenol. Solid flavour, plenty of tingly spice running through, tasty wheat/fruit balance. Has a perhaps slightly high bitterness feel and crispness for the style, but enough smooth creaminess in the body to keep it in check. Well made, up with the better ones made outside of Germany.

(12oz bottle) AROMA: very nice german wheat beer nose, yeast, dough, hint of cloves, additional herbal notes, floral, also a hint of banana APPEARANCE: medium straw yellow, slightly cloudy, white head, uniformly tight foam, thin creamy residual TASTE: medium malt, sweet wheat and corn, yeasty, sour biscuit, tart dairy, herbal notes, some acidity PALATE: light medium body, soft/smooth in the mouth, some creaminess but also a tad watery OVERALL: a solid Weiss Beer, good German characteristics, I really enjoyed the nose, just a bit light in body and flavor, I would buy again.

hard to tell all these wheat beers apart. unless i had them side by side im starting to notice they are all very similar. This one looks REAL pretty in a glass tho. certainly tasty sweet banana up front with some breadyness lingering on the end. a little spicy. but aint that most wheats?

Bottle from Total Wine in Fredericksburg. Pours mostly clear golden with a dusting of a white head. Aroma is wheat, sweat, banana. Flavor is sweet grasses, light banana, wheat, a little yeast. Plain. Fine.
