A: Hazy gold color with an orange tint. Poured a 2 finger white head that dissipated to an even skim. Decanted continually. Lacing washed down the glass.

S: Slightly sweet bready aroma. Citrus, orange peel and clove. Pleanty of yeast notes.

T: Bready and sweet. Spices blend evenly. Light sweetness lingers into bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing.

M: Light-to-medium body. Ample carbonation. Refreshing and bit fizzy; crisp.

D: Very drinkable beer in a drinkable style. Good flavors and aromas from a balance of malt, hops and yeast.

From 12oz bottle

A- Pours a hazy/murky deep golden yellow with some orange highlights to it. Nice 1 finger white head which died away pretty quick leaving no real lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Musty bready smell off the bat. Picking up some small hints of orange peel and clove. Big Belgian yeasty smell though. Smells wonderful!

T- Nice musty bready bite to this. Very clean tasting. Can detect a faint trace of the alcohol. Clove and a strange banana-y taste along with this.

M- Light-medium mouthfeel to this. Very crisp and clean tasting. Carbonation is good for the style and really gives the beer a push across the palate. A great presence of yeast on the tounge after a sip.

D- This is a very easy drinker and maybe one of the best american hefeweizens I have had the pleasure of drinking. Would and will drink again. Also would recommend to people who want something to bring them in easy to the style!

served from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass

Pours a very hazy shade of honeyed lemon. The clean, white head is tremendously fluffy at 3 fingers or so before eventually settling down to a 1/2 finger ring. Lacing is pretty much nonexistent, however. Must be the glass.

The aromas are on-point as far as being traditional. The banana is there on first whiff. You get the clove, too, but its overshadowed by the tangy lemon/citrus scents.

The predominant citrus in the nose follows through on the tongue; lemon flavor coats the tongue from the get-go. Subsequent quaffing yields the smooth banana flavor and some bubblegum estery goodness. The zip from the wheat is appreciated, but the grain bill is deeper than that... there is some bready flavor that reminds me of sourdough. Some may prefer a greater presence of clove and spices -- this beer is comparatively light on clove -- but its a plus for me.

I love the mouthfeel on SN Kellerweisse! It manages to be creamy, in a sense, while still remaining light. The slightly aggressive carbonation serves to highlight the lemon flavor. Drinkability is, by extension, superb. The refreshing flavors and great feel serve to make a beer that you want to keep on drinking. The lessened clove presence speaks to my preferences and raises this beer's subjective drinkability for me, too.

All-in-all, this is a pretty wonderful take on the hefewiezen style. It has all of the flavor and refreshment that you could ask for.

12oz. brown bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a cloudy, pale gold with a big white head. Plenty of carbonation which is typical of the style. Spicy aroma with more clove than banana, which is how I prefer a hefe. Light to medium body. More banana in the flavor and some wheaty spice. They really nailed the creamy mouthfeel that you typically only get in a German Hefe. Seems to be some noble hops in there. Dry finish. One of the best American takes on Hefe.

The beer pours a cloudy pale gold color with a 1/2" white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice pale and wheat malt scent along with a citrus character and the lovely hefe yeast aroma. The taste is good. It has a solid malt taste that boasts of pale and wheat malts. Again, it has a powerful citrus flavor and just a slight banana/clove finish. It's quite crisp and refreshing; not a real heavy hefe. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a highly quaffable hefe. It explodes with a nice mix of hefe yeast, citrus, and malts; a wonderful summer brew.

12 oz bottle poured as instructed into a DFH snifter. Last third of the bottle is swirled to rouse the yeast

A - Orange and cloudy, with a finger and a half of pillowy foam. Dissipates fairly quickly

S - Banana, spicy phenolic nose. This is certainly a hefe

T - Banana bomb. Yeast smacks you in the tongue. Wheat malt rounds out the beer nicely.

M - High amount of carbonation tickles the tongue. No bitterness to speak of, just a spicy banana flavor

D - Very drinkable, if you are in the mood for a hefe. Would be great on a hot day.

Very good for the style, but not my favorite style of beer. I'd be interested to see how this tastes with <gasp!>... a lemon.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Large, silky head with barely-visible vanilla swirls inside the golden orange liquid. The aroma of sweet spice and delicate orange strikes the nose. The taste is incredibly smooth and immediately transported me back to Munich drinking a Franziskaner in the dining car to the Swiss Alps. The hop taste is very subversive and lets the spice and fruit steal the show. The most flavorful Hefeweizen I've had in the US.

Poured from abottle into my pint glass the beer is a cloudy yellow orange with head that seems to touch the ceiling. The head is thick and creamy I want to put a cherry on top and eat it with a spoon. OK now that it's settled down it leaves a tiny bit of lace around my glass. The aroma is bananas right out of the gate. Clove and sweet bubble gum. I'm getting a faint earthy black dirt smell as well. The flavor is much like the nose. Banana and clove are the most dominant with a biscuity finish. Fairly dry with mild carbonation. Medium body as far as feel goes. This is a good hefe. Not the best I've had but very drinkable nonetheless.

Six-pack purchased in Columbus for about $8-9. This is my 3rd bottle, these are going down easy (4.8% ABV).

The beer is hazy and pale yellow, with a ridiculous amount of foam, I can't pour the bottle into a pint glass in one go, no matter how gently I approach it. The foam leaves lacy vestiges as it recedes. The smell is classic bananas and, I guess, clove. Same with the taste, much delicious. Easily competitive with fresh Bavarian stuff. Medium-to-chewy body, I like this beer a lot.

A - Hazy, pale yellow-gold. A gritty layer of particulate at the bottom of the bottle adds extra cloudiness when swirled and poured. Medium-sized head with good retention. Moderate to weak lacing.

S - Mine smelled almost exactly the same as Great Lakes Grassroots Ale, and no, that is not a compliment. Like deviled eggs, baked beans or the water that collects at the bottom of a cooler or picnic basket. Pretty disgusting.

T - First taste is of wheat and citrus, then banana takes over. Would be better without the slight "rotten" taste that accompanies that putrid smell.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty good. Creamy, well carbonated, smooth and refreshing.

D - What can I say? I just don't feel like having another one when I lower my nose back into that glass. The taste is not that bad, and the mouthfeel is great, but I really expected more from this hefe.

I could not believe how well-reviewed this Kellerweis was, compared to my experience with it. I bought this six-pack from a Giant Eagle grocery store, and come to think of it there WAS a little bit of white dust on the tops and necks of the bottles, but I just blew it off and forgot about it. There is no freshness or brewed-on date on the bottle, so I can only guess as to whether or not it was past-prime. Maybe I'll contact SN to find out.

12 oz. bottle, 4.8% ABV. Pours a cloudy, bright gold color. White fluffy head disappears after a couple minutes. Not much lace here either.

Lots of banana and bubblegum in the nose. A bit of clove, and a hint of tartness round things out, and make it seem very true to style.

Tartness comes in up front, but nice and subtle. A wave of banana comes in next, and fades into bubblegum. Minimal amount of clove. A slight citrus note at the end.

Light body, needs a bit more carbonation to liven it up. Very easy to drink, and refreshing.

I heard good things about this brew, and I finally got around to trying it. It pours an appropriate hazy straw color, but the head isn't as big as I would expect for a German-style hefeweizen. The aroma is okay, but it's too light and weak. It doesn't have enough of the traditional clove/spice that I enjoy. There is some of that, but there's also some sour-ish character to the nose. The taste has (some of) the characteristics of German hefes that I look for, but there's also a light addition of lemon along with a stronger tartness than I usually like in my hefes. The mouthfeel is too thin for the style. The more I sip on this brew, the more the watery-ness becomes apparent and disappointing. Still, this beer is a nice, refreshing stab at a German hefe. You certainly couldn't go wrong when drinking one of these on a hot Summer day. Lawnmower and/or session beer? Sure...a fine choice and sooo much better than any macro or some other light ale/lager. To be fair, this is one of the better American-made German hefes I've had in a while. With that being said, I prefer a true-German hefe. I even did a blind tasting with this SN hefe and some German hefe, and I preferred a German version. Oh well, I'm still happy to see SN brewing something like this and doing a respectable job with it.

A pleasant orange hue offsets a pale golden body. Thin lacy head.

Herbal cloves nice spice and light banana notes. A hint of bready yeast.

Bananas are very present with a nice herbal spice lighter on the cloves the aroma and flavors seem to reverse on the intensities.

High carbonation lights up the tongue. Very traditional hefenweizen. Wouldn't go so far to put this up there with Weihenstephaner, but pretty spot on for an American take on the style.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-weisse glass.

A--Golden hazy body with an aggressive white tightly creamy 3 finger head. Dissipates in lovely chunky sheets down the side of the glass. Picture perfect.

S--Right out of the gate this is absolutely lovely: bananas over top of apricot and peach. So, so fresh and summery. Somehow /smells/ spritzy. Can't wait to taste. Yeast is subdued but has a pizza dough proof aspect lurking behind all those fresh fruits. More hops than is usual for the style, but not hoppy by any means.

T--Oh my sweet heaven. This is smooth, tangy, bubbly, and wonderful. Much more on the mellow side, with subdued clove phenols and tapered off wheaty tang. The wheat is present, but it doesn't have that pale lemony bite of Ayinger. But neither is it as hefty as Schneder-Weisse, which pours up nearly amber. This is closer to Weihenstephaner, which is high praise indeed. The freshness of this domestic hefe really helps showcase the grainbill--there's some husky wheat and even barley undertones in the middle of the flavor profile, like a fresh baguette or loaf of sourdough--amid the yeasty swirl of gummy dough and bubblegum and banana/peach. This is the smoothie of beers. Tasterrific.

M&D--Mouthfeel is just a tad zippy, but I'm just digging for something critical to say. It ain't easy. Drinkability is off the hook, as I'd pick this up anywhere anybody put it down. Super refreshing--perfect for spring and summer, but I'd take it in fall, winter, morning, noon, while sleeping...

You get the idea. And at less than 10 a six, um...heaven? You know everything you want and expect from Corona given their marketing campaign? Well, here it is, except in bottle liquid reality. This tastes like a relaxing beach--you don't have to squinch your eyes shut and pop another lime in the bottle to imagine something refreshing past the cooked cabbage that is Corona.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance: Poured with a nice creamy off white head that dissipated to a thin layer leaving almost no lacing. The beer is slightly cloudy with a yellow golden color.

Smell: Ripe banana, light spicy clove, apple, honey, some yeasty dough toward the end.

Taste: Fruity banana and apple, small clove spice, tangy wheat, some yeasty malty flavors, nice citrus/floral hop presence, sweet floral honey. Ends with a crisp refreshing flavor of the fruity flavors combined with the hoppy flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, a lot of carbonation, strong tingle on the tongue from the carbonation and hops, leaves mouth refreshed.

Overall: Really good hefe, very refreshing. Nice fruit flavors with a small spice. The hops are more prevalent than in most other hefes but not overpowering. Very refreshing beer to enjoy anytime.

A- An unbelievably cloudy yellow liquid that has an almost milky effect. The white head is very creamy looking and it leaves some nice lacing.

S- Bananas, clove, white bread, and a bit of pepper. I expected a bit more of Sierra Nevada-ness to this. Smells just like it should.

T- Exactly the same as the aroma. Pretty mild, but very nice.

M- Wonderfully creamy and smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. There is a nice, dry aftertaste.

D- A great take on the style and rivals some of the Germans. I am impressed.

poured from 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

A: cloudy, straw-yellow. white head that dissipates quickly.

S: clove spiciness is the main aroma. some faint banana and a hint of yeast aroma are there, but very subdued.

T: the clove spiciness still is the main taste. the banana comes in more pronounced than the aroma. also some graininess is noted, but subtle.

MF: medium-light body and moderately high carbonation.

Drinkability: the drinkability is high, its a good beer, but i wish the banana flavor and aroma were more pronounced.

Pours a lemon orange in color with a bit of haze initially, becoming deeper and cloudier with a full pour. An inch of just off white head slowly bubbles down and throws off ample lacing and is easily regenerated as well given a steady release of carbonation.

Smell is a bit sour with just half the bottle with lots of ripe banana and light citrus blending with notes of wheat and yeast when poured fully. Nose is very clean and hints at just a touch of sweetness.

Taste follows the nose with banana and a bit of lemon. Has a slightly chewy wheat finish and offers enough carbonation to hold some soft citrus flavors well in the finish. Sweetness detected on the nose stays in the background but helps smooth the feel a bit, as this brew doesn't have steep dropoff to dryness you might find in a German Hefe.

A nice American take on the style, pretty legit with a slight bent towards smooth over dry. Will reserve one for a side by side with the Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier I think....

P.S., don't serve this beer too cold as the head and flavors are rather sensitive to temperature.

A- huge expansive ivory head with cascading action and a magnificent creaminess. the look of this foam rivals that of any german wheat beer i've seen . once the yeast is in, the beer takes on a cloudy ochre yellow color where it was once a brighter albeit still hazy lemon yellow.

S- a bit spicier and more citrusy than traditional weiss , with aromas going beyond banana and clove and into coriander, orange, lemon, and white grape territory. whatever method of open fermentation allowed the yeast to do it's thang like this, i'm diggin it. yeast vapors fume out and up my nose. with a sweet toasty wheat and some faint herbal hop.

T- not as tangy as i would like, but still damn good. very grainy and bready with some banana and clove but more of an earthy wood and stone type of yeast taste and less citrus as well. just a bit of leafy vinous hop flavor and no bitterness. clean white bread and yeast finish is clearly the exact intention of this masterful brew.

MF- this body of this baby is so ridiculously plush i could take a nap in it. gentle, extremely tight carbonation has a nitro feel to it, and with a sip the beer is transformed to a pillow of wheat protein and love, rolling effortlessly around on the palate and leaving only a pleasant filmy reminder of powdery yeast on the cheeks. medium bodied, feels like full and drinks like light.

D- a damn brilliant masterpiece and a year round one at that! taste for me didn't get the aces but it just doesn't fit the ideals i have about traditional german hefes. everything else is unstoppable and perfect IMO and the rest of this sixer will be gone before the night is over.

Poured into 10oz glass. Poured a slightly hazy yellow, doesn't have the typical cloudiness you see in Hefe's. A thick, fluffy, white dissipated at a slightly quicker than moderate pace, leaving little lacing.

The typical aromas for the style are present, but subdued. Same goes for the flavors. The body was smooth and evenly full. Drinkability was easy. Overall an average version of the style, I could see keeping a few of these in the fridge during the summer, even though I prefer Wits over Hefe's. Worth trying.

Appearance: Cloudy medium yellow/orange with a decent white head. Good lacing.

Smell: Yeasty with a touch of that spice I hate but can't think of its name. It smells like cloves

Taste: It's got that yucky clove spice. I think it's called coriander.

Mouthfeel: Water

Drinkability: Bad. It has that yucky clove tasting spice that ruins the beer. It's in almost all wheat beers and it's normal to have that spice but I hate it.

Because the beer has that awful clove tasting spice, it really sux.

Kellerweis pours an attractive straw color. Looks spot-on for a good Hefe. It's extremely hazy, but no yeast particles are noted. It's topped with an immense white head that reaches nearly three fingers in depth. It was rather quick to dissipate and left only light specks of lace behind. For the style, I'm not sure you can do a whole lot better. Good lookin' stuff.

The nose good, but lacks just a little in strength. Spices are noted right off the bat. It smells like mostly clove and pepper, but there are surely some others to a lesser degree. Smells earthy and very grainy. Yeast is quite prominent and adds a nice dimension to it. Banana is noted, but comes through a little too weak. I'm hopeful that'll be a different story in flavor. It has a stronger hop presence than I expected. At least that's true in smell. Kellerweis smells good. It'd smell better with more muscle and banana. I'm nitpicking a little.

The flavor profile largely mirrors the nose. It's honestly a little better, but not so much to warrant a score bump. Spices hit the palate first and kick things off nicely. It is mostly a mix of clove and pepper with perhaps a few others for good measure. Banana is present and works nicely with clove. Personally, I'd like more banana, but there's enough here to do the job. Hops are surprisingly strong and give the flavor a nice jolt. I don't know what types were used here, but it certainly tastes like some mix of Noble hops. It is grainy and earthy. Yeast is prominent and adds quality depth. I'm waffling on the score here. This is good stuff. Really good. If it had just a little more banana, it'd be superb. But, it's not quite there. Very close though.

Kellerweis has a light body that's nice and smooth. It's very good, but feels just the slightest bit too thin. Carbonation is active, but doesn't hurt it by any means. Drinkability is very high. In typical Sierra Nevada fashion, this stuff goes down like a dream. It's also only 4.8% abv. I could literally drink this stuff all night.

I'm yet to run across a Sierra Nevada beer that I don't like. Kellerweis is a fantastic addition to their lineup. It's not one of the world's finest Hefes, but it is a damn good one that's readily available and has an attractive price tag. The only small qualm I have with it is the slightly weak banana presence. A little more would easily improve it. Be that as it may, this is damn good stuff. I'm glad to see Sierra Nevada adding some new stuff to their arsenal. Keep it up, guys. Very good stuff.

Pours a cloudy gold color with a 2 inch creamy tan head, that smells of yeast, lemon, clove and wheat (it actually smells kind of like a bar floor after closing, but in a good way). Light and crisp with lemon and clove flavor up front followed by malt, wheat, yeast and light spices; hop, malt and spice finish that is dry and refreshing. Overall an earthy feel and great texture from the sediment in this beer with very light carbonation, which makes it easy to drink. Nice lemon and yeast combo that balances out the hop and zest at the end.

It's fun to swirl the bottle to try and get all the sediment to jar loose and pour into the glass. A great summer beer and an outstanding version of a Hefeweizen. I highly recommend this beer.

I have been wanting to try this since I saw the ad in Beer Advocate. Pours a very cloudy yellow color with a slight but vigorous head. Smelled very yeasty and the immediate taste was lemon but then I got banana and spice. While this is not my favorite style I really enjoyed this one, especially the full body and complexity.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle yellow and clear; swirled the remaining amount in the bottle and the ale turned typically cloudy with yeast with a nice pillowy, fluffy white head.

Initially I was disappointed when I popped open the bottle - there was very little aroma. However, after the pour the familiar yeasty aromas of the hefe-weizen came through.

It began with a very spritzy, refreshing taste of banana and faint bubble gum. I was pleased with the faint clove like flavor that is often too noticeable in other wheat ales.

Lighter in body than more traditional german hefe-weizens but still packing a lot of flavors with perfect carbonation for this style. Very smooth and sweet mouthfeel.

This is a very quaffable wheat beer - from the lighter flavors and lower alcohol than the hefes I have tried. It can be difficult to find american versions that do this style justice - this one is more or less on the mark.
