Sierra Nevada Kellerweis pours out beautifully. Gorgeous looking in the glass with a nice hazy yellow-orange body. Ample head, and fluffy lacing. Aroma is clean, but still packed with cloves, banana, and sweet citrus. Taste follows suit of the aroma, except with a bit more spiciness pronounced. Starts out with a greatly intense blending of flavors - bubblegum, hints of clove, citrus, and banana. Sweet bubblegum esters present themselves upfront and meld with the light toasted breadiness of the malt to create a complex backbone. Citrus notes soon follow and are juicy up front, and gradually fade to tangy near the finish. Hints of clove provide just a hint of spiciness. Fruit esters including banana, tend to pop up more near the middle, and stick to your palate for the finish leaving your mouth coated with a great citrus fruity tropical finale, with ample chewiness, leading to a big full bodied mouthfeel. All the flavors seem spot on, and exactly where and expect they should be. Kellerweis can't really be flawed, it's just an exceptional amazingly drinkable brew. I love most of Sierra Nevadas lineup, but this is one of their better basic brews. Puts almost any imported Hefe under the table, hell of a lot fresher too!

12 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass
L: pale yellow, half misty ... can see through it some; fluffy 2/3-inch head of white foam, surprisingly no stick or lace, but it keeps a fully skin of white foam on top with a massive white collar; looks like a bubble factory in the column ... hundreds and hundreds of very tiny bubbles cascade up to the top
S: banana ... classic wheat beer, sweet and light and fruity; butterscotch
T: follows the nose 1-to-1 and the first few sips are so sweet you'd swear you're drinking a good tripel. the banana and fruit notes never sour
F: perfect ... it's very full yet very light and drinkable ... seriously, it doesn't get better than this
O: lives up to Sierra Nevada's sterling reputation ... I've yet to have a bad beer from them, and this falls right in line with the rest of their goodness. a great, easy, light hefeweizen that's perfect for this Texas summer but so tasty I imagine I'd love one of these in any climate at any time.
