3.94/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

No bottling date as far as I can see.

A: Pours a hazy pale gold with the biggest, frothiest white head I've seen. There is 1/2" of liquid and the entire rest of the Duvel tulip is foam. Head takes forever to settle down, top-tier retention. Huge doily-like lacework everywhere. Big island of foam.

S: Lightly citrusy and grassy. Light dried-out hay really, not so much a fresh-cut grass. Mild crackery malt. Hint of some spiciness like black pepper.

T: Again, lightest hint of citrus and hay up front but a surprisingly spicy black pepper and herbal quality. Some sweet grains in the middle but the herbal hops blasts in again before long. Long lingering grainy black pepper aftertaste.

M: Light/medium body, very smooth and spicy.

O: A spicy, peppery Kellerweiss is there ever was one. Great smooth mouthfeel, a proper lager for sure. Super drinkability but borderline due to all the herbal and peppery flavors. Gives it a real kick. Very flavorful for 5.5% as a result. Sorta reminds me of a really peppery saison at points.

3.98/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clouded, darkish golden-orange body with a tall, sustained, meringue-like, white head. Thick lacing.

Smell: Toasted grains with an ultra thin edge of sugar, fresh, yeasty dough, a clean, spicy, bitter herb hop aroma, with an underlying growing fruitiness.

Taste: Subtly toasty, lightly doughy maltiness with a light touch of honey sweetness. Spicy, lightly herbal (a tad grassy) hops with a thin bit of lemony citrus. Medium-light bitterness. A bit of sour yeast character. Drying, herbal-laden finish with touches of yeast and minerality.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. High, tingly carbonation.

Overall: A very pronounced level of carbonation, but, still, it's a rather refreshing brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass. The beer poured out very cloudy as the all of the yeast was poured out from the bottom of the bottle.
S: Moderate aromas of yeast are present in the nose along with hints of bready malts.
T: The taste has complex flavors of yeast along with notes of grassy and herbal hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: This Kellerbeer seems to be happier compared to other beers I've had but still has nice complex flavors of yeast.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pilsner glass, it was hazy yellow gold color with champagne-like bubbles racing up the brew and as expected had a massive 4-5 finger snow white foamy head that looked like soap overflowing from a washing machine; the head was full of bubbles of all shapes and sizes and dissipated very slowly leaving great foamy lacing and rings as it went down. The head never went away and was very impressive, it looked like a well-hopped DIPA and each pour from the bomber kicked up more cloudy sediment.

Smells of sweet malt, wheat bread, wet cardboard, yeast, light caramel and floral hops or herbs. Slightly skunky yeast odor then trails off fruity and hoppy with a touch of spices; not quite a lager and not quite a Belgian nose, a mix of the two that was alright.

Tastes like a rich malty lager, with wheat bread, funky yeast or a penny/metallic flavor, tea leaf, biscuit, lightly roasted grains, caramel, floral hops, fruit like apple skin, lemon, dry grass or hay, and light hoppy spices; the flavor is on the sweet side, but it has that German beerhall flavor that dares you to pound it as it is easy to drink with a fine balance of malt and hops.

Mouthfeel is creamy and almost smooth, with very mild carbonation, a medium to almost chewy body, and a slightly bitter sweet malty finish that has some lemon zest and hop bite to it.

The Kellerbier/Zwickelbier style is not one I get my hands on often, but this was quite good and sessionable, one I recommend trying as it was tasty with a low ABV. Would love to pound about 10 of these on a sunny Saturday afternoon and see what kind of chaos would follow, in the spirit of German brewing, of course...

375ml bottle. Weizen glass. - sweet malt & honey aromas fly at the moment cap is removed. Golden color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, foamy & lasting thin layer on top, spots are left on sides. Slightly woody, grainy & malty aromas. Crispy upfront, light citric flavor & arising bitterness rounded by green wood & light piney hues. Light body. Soft carbonation. Dense palate & spicy touch, gentle effervescence but no watery sensation. Low herbal, honey notes & clean bitterness –allowing caramel be shown- resolve in a dry bitter/sweet finish. Refreshing & nice drinkability !!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Poured a hazy, yellow gold into a Pilsner flute. Lots of very white foam that continues to coat the surface of the beer all the way down the glass. Lots of thick lacing along the glass.

S - Interesting aroma, lots of spice suggesting Noble hops, with some cereal grain at the end.

T - Lots of initial spicy hop bitterness on the tongue at first, then following with some toasted bread notes.

M - Very soft and light on the palate.

O - An excellent, drinkable beer. I'd prefer it in the summer, but didn't want to wait.

4.05/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It has a nice semi-hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down slowly and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of oranges, mango, grassy hops, some sweet caramel and bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has an orangy/mango fruitiness, a grassy hop bitterness, a slight earthiness, faint honey/caramel and some bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Small bottle from Peluso in Montreal. Bottled about 3 months ago. From notes.

A - Poured a nice hazy golden orange colour. Strong carbonation and a two finger fluffy white head. Great wall of lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Orange, yeast, grass.

T - Orangey yeast, crackers, maybe wheat? Sweet fruits.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body and a sweet grassy finish.

O/D - A little underwhelming, but decent for the style I suppose. Enjoyed the 375mL format b/c I probably wouldn't finish a 750 of this.
