COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first release in our Moveable Yeast series, Weedwacker is the result of our pitching Lawnmower wort (wort is the unfermented beer) with Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. Weedwacker will be available draft only. This is a study in how different yeasts have different effects on beers. Note: As the base beer for this beer is a Kolsch, this beer will remain in the Kolsch style.

Cloudy and very light yellow. Head is good with small bubbles. Lots yeast funk in the aroma but tons of citrus in the taste. Plenty of lemon especially. Finish is slightly bitter with little hits of lemon zest.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a small, fading white head. Aroma of sulphur, hay, grass, slight lemon, and mustard. Oddly tangy on the nose, but interesting. Taste has a lot more in common with a regular hefe with some bread, earth, mushroom, dust, light spice, and very slight lemon. Finishes with bread and earth and drying sensation on the throat. Light bodied, prickly carbonation. I like the idea of trying The Lawnmower beer with different yeasts. Good stuff, definitely like a hefeweizen just because of what that yeast can do.

Pale white-gold with a ring of white head. Slight spiced aroma. Banana-clove hefe-esque but very light.

Great Aroma and great taste, no matter how much I drink it never fills me up.

bottle, pours a slight hazy yellow color with white foam, aroma is yeasty with a good hefe influence attached to the sweet fruitiness of the weedeater

Bottle from kegs and barrels. This beer pours a dull yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are skunk, yeast, leather. The mouthfeel is watery and bitter with a medium carbonation and body. Great summer beer! Cheers!

On draft at Barcadia. Pours an intriguing hazy hellow with a thick creamy white head that only slow dissipates. Wonderful citrus aromas. Citrus notes on the front end, with an excellent balance and long refreshing finish! Very surprised by how delicious this beer is, especially since I am not a huge fan of most St. Arnold beers.

Bottle from the Texas trading fiend: ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is strongly banana with a little spice. Near med body til the carbonation leaves. Flavor is principally banana, but there’s fairly strong clove. Maybe there should be a hefebarley style? Pretty drinkable.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for this one in trade. It is the kolsch that tastes a hefe. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is very pleasant: bread, ripe banana, yeast, esters, and floral hops with some sweet lemon peel. Flavor is light citrus, lemon, banana, yeast, and some dryness in the back. This is a polite, how-do-you-do beer that gently and politely introduces itself. Light, flavorful, and summer-loving. Sessionable as hell. I could drink the heck out of this beer.
