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.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2010
On tap at Anvil way back when I took notes on it. Hazy hay colored pour with white head. Funky, grass forward nose...touch of barnyard....great nose actually. Flavor isn’t quite what the nose is, and mouthfeel is rather flat. Some floral and citrus notes, but doesn’t live up to what the aroma promises. Nice to taste this side by side with the Lawnmower. Fun experiment to enjoy.

On cask. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized foamy off white head. Notes of bananas, butter, shortbread, catty hops, and lemon. Medium mouthfeel. Lengthy finish.

bleeng (1533) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Tap at Onion Creek-Houston. Pale yellow, hazy, small white head. Nose is very wheaty, banana, lager-ish. Taste is light wheat, very yeasty, some banana. Fluffy and well carbonated. The base lawnmower is evident. Overall decent and a good summer beer. Alcohol is not evident. Hefeweizen-lite.

jumpjet2k (314) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Tap at the Flying Saucer Houston. Looks like a hazy version of the normal Lawnmower, with a moderate white head. The nose is a little barnyardy and funky; grassy and floral as well. Flavor is drier at the start than Lawnmower, with citrus and flower notes and a little cloves. Finishes a bit more sweet. An interesting and fun experiment from SA - I’m looking forward to the rest of the Movable Yeast series.

(Cask) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of banana, clove, grass, and light citrus. Flavor of banana, bread, earth, clove, and lemon wafers.

mmmbeer (1250) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pint glass @ Draught House: served a cloudy and hazy 3 year old straw color, white ring around the glass that did lace to some extent. Cross aroma of wheat, clove, and banana- it was pleasant though. Hit the mouth first with a light-medium body, malt is decent in taste, light in clove in the middle, finish has a lemon zing and is somewhat dry. The wife sipped off this while I had 3 others, at the end of the evening, as the beer became warmer, more of the Lawnmower aspect was very apparent- a grass/ formaldehyde taste developed in the middle. Had to knock off a few points for that, but still a decent experiment.

kidmartinek (3722) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Clear darkish blone. Big white head. Vanilla clove wheat yeasty aroma. Wheat malt and yeast flavor. A little effervescent. Sorry alkaseltzer... Did i steal a word you trademarked? Vanilla finish.

ttutony (671) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Cloudy straw yellow in the glass. Definite hefeweizen yeast aroma with a spicy estery character. Very interesting palate that starts out like your typical hefeweizen but finishes with a familiar rounded malted barley note. Pretty cool mix of flavors.

Fratto (2626) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Side by side with the Fancy Lawnmower at the Fort Worth Gingerman. Aroma is slightly more spicy, but pretty much the same. Taste adds some banana and juicyfruit feeling.

Cavie (3801) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Tap at the Gman FW courtesy of Melissa. Tried in tandem with the Lawnmower. Clear gold color with a creamier head than the original. Aroma is a spicy fruit. Big banana nose. Very big. Flavor remains pretty fruity. Lots of banana still with some lemon-lime flavoring. Lots more flavor than the original. I like it!
