Later tonight I’m hanging out around my old stomping grounds in New Hampshire. We are celebrating Michelle’s birthday. Michelle has been a friend of mine for years, going back way before I was really into craft beer.
For a little pre-game action I’m reviewing Sierra Nevada Kellerweis. This is a perfect fit for tonight as Hefeweizen was probably the first craft beer style I fell in love with way back when…Michelle and Hefe are old friends of mine.
This brew was guest reviewed well over a year ago and you can check out that review here.
On another note, this beer appeared on my 2011 New Beers Resolutions. Woot! Check, another resolution complete!
The Kellerweis has a subtle head that hangs around forever. It’s a very hazy light orange color.
Flavors are clove and citrus. Not terribly complex, however full flavored nonetheless. I’d say it would go well with an orange slice in it, but frankly you don’t need it given how strong the citrus taste is.
It’s a solid beer and I honestly can’t find anything wrong with it. That said, the hefe style doesn’t really do it for me anymore though. It’s kinda sad as I have such fond memories of first getting acquainted with it so long ago.
Is there a style of beer you once were bonkers for and have since lost the desire for?
