Guest Review by SLIM: Sierra Nevada Kellerweis, Hefeweizen
The first beer I’ve chosen to review is also the first offering I have ever had from Sierra Nevada (http://www.sierranevada.com/index2.html). I’m not completely sure why I have avoiding trying this brewer until now but it could be because it’s pretty mainstream and made in California . They’re most famously known for their pale ale (I’m not too crazy about pale ale’s…almost always pick a hefeweizen or a stout over a pale ale). I certainly did enjoy Kellerweis, though. It had a lot of flavor, was very drinkable, and finished okay. I recommend this beer to anyone but don’t think I would go as far to say it is as good as Boulevard Wheat. It is moderately priced though and worth a look.
Review (Unfortunately, I don’t have quite as good of a flavor-catching pallet that the beerbaron boasts but I will do the best to relay my opinion on the quality of this brew to the best of my ability.)
Pour-Hazy golden pour with an all white head.
Aroma-Smell of citrus and a slight hint of hoppiness.
Taste-Very fruity, sweet, but somewhat artificial tasting finish.
Eastern Iowa Residents: You will generally find this at any Hy-Vee and at most liquor stores. This isn’t quite as widely available as the Pale Ale but you should be able to track it down without much difficulty.
