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.

Toned down Hefeweizen taste. Pretty good beer. Better than lawnmower. Will have again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

D&Q Mini Mart, Houston 12oz bottle: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is slightly bready, some light banana and a greater amount of citrus. Taste to me seemed more like a fruity blonde ale than it did a hefeweizen, so I depart from the general opinion on this page. Fruity, citrus, some banana, but not in that powerful way that you see in real hefeweizens. Nice and drinkable.

I don't care for the aroma. It is heavily carbonated with a fairly cloudy golden appearance, and a small head. Smooth to drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Backlog) 12 oz bottle. Cloudy look, light yellowish color, decent to thin white head. The smell is hay, banana, yeast, fruits, and some clove. The taste is much the same as the smell but more subtle. You get more of the kolsch feel in the feel and taste. Interesting beer.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2013
12 ounce bottle. A big white head and a hazy golden beer under. Plenty of carbonation. This beer is gentle with soft fruit and yeast. Hops are quite light. Yeast is in front here. It offers both Kolsch and hefe notes. Fruit flavors grow with warmer temps. It finishes like a dry hefeweizen. I like this beer and it defies style.

Cloudy, golden-orange, with thin off-white head. Citrus, wheat, and mild floral aroma. Medium bodied, tart, tongue tingler, lasting bitter finish, ok balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer pours decently with a nice hazy straw color with an okay white head but very little lacing on the glass. The beer smells decently with good notes of orange, lemon, and mild corriander but not overly powerful or strong. The taste is okay with mild favors of citrus (ornage and lemon) and mild spices but very mildly. The mouthfeel is decent with a bitter aftertaste and okay carbonation. Overall, an average hefewizen, nothing spectacular that I cant get from a local brewer.

12 oz bottle. (Albertsons) Lafayette, LA. Cloudy orangey golden colour with a tiny white head. Wheat, Belgian style yeast and mild bitterness in the aroma. Yeast, malt and mild sweetness in the flavour. Quite enjoyable. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2013
12 oz bottle at Seasons 52... Nose is very hefe, banana, lots of clove, wheat, other spices... Pours a hazy gold color, small white head, minimal lace... Taste is wheat and clove, some sweetness, pretty much like the nose... The body is medium, decent drinkability, average-to-heavy carbonation... Solid stuff, but not a kolsch really at all. The hefe flavors dominate.

Bottle, 12oz. It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer with a small, white head. Quite a few microfloaties as well. Lots of bubblegum on the nose, with lemon and some orange, a touch of wheat and cloves. The cloves are more present in the flavor, especially in the finish, with the bubblegum, banana, lemon and wheat present all the way. It’s quite lemony sour on the palate, medium to thin bodied, and with a too hard carbonation, although not effervescent. Long finish. In my opinion, there’s too much bubblegum and acidity in this one, but at least it goes down easily. Until the gas makes it too filling. 130829
