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!
