COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Summer Seasonale... A Belgian-style White beer that we brew with three different Belgian yeast strains and spice with three different aromatic citrus peels and coriander. The WeedWacker is complex, yet refreshing with a spicy aroma yielding to a dry, quenching finish.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Like most of its style, it’s light and spicy with sweet and tart competing from prominence against its water.

Coming in at 4.5% abv, it is a very refreshing, spicy, tart, very drinkable beer, perfect for those hot and humid Summer days in Rehobeth Beach. Weedwacker Hefe-Wit pours to a beautiful, hazy, bright yellow color with a tight white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful with lots of spicy clove and coriander aromas paired with hints of citrus. The palate is tart and refreshing with lots of wheaty flavors, vibrant citrus flavors, and a back drop of spicy yeast flavor. Weedwacker finishes with more flavors of wheat and citrus, and ends with some nice spicy yeast flavors that lingers.

jgb9348 (4636) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Slightly hazy blonde-no head at all! Aroma of coriander seed, yeast & bubble gum. Medium-bodied; Curacao, light coriander seed, wheat and some spices in the taste. Subtle aftertaste-hardly anything at all. Overall, a pretty big dissapointment-not worthy of DFH in my opinion! I sampled this pint at RFD in Washington, D.C. on 23-August-2004.

Sampled at the brewpub. This is a nice wit, but very light in flavor. If I strained I could pick out the different flavors, but it was mostly bland fruitiness. Refreshing, though.

On Tap. Poured a hazy light yellow with virtually no head. Aroma and tastes of light yeast, bananas and light wheat. An OK beer and thirst quencher but nothing more. I chose this as my ’break’ beer after having a few heavier and more potent beers.

Had this on tap and did not know it was a Witbier. Nothing in the flavor gave any clues to that fact either. This was quite bland and ordinary.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Had this at the HBF. Golden colored, with aroma of citrus, yeast, slight banana. Tastes of citrus, slight fruit, banana, and spice. Medium mouthfeel, with a nice finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Clean, light gold body with a really long lasting head ring. The aroma is citrusy tart and a bit bready. The taste remind me of a mild banana bread with a bit too much lemon squeezed in. Not a bad brew and definately refreshing but just a little subpar for a wit.

On tap at RFD in Washington, D.C. Clear golden color with a thin white head. Sweet aroma, somewhat malty. Didn’t really taste like a Wit. Some spice, but mostly sweet malt. The lemon didn’t help either/ A good beer from Dogfish, but not what I classify as a Wit.
