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.

Cybercat (3735) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Pours a hazy golden, not much head. Zesty, wheaty aroma has a lemony and slightly sweet overtone. Rich, wheaty aroma has definite lemon and yeasty notes and a hint of banana. Texture is fairly fizzy but on the watery side. Give it a whack.

Ratman197 (10546) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of straw bread, light yeast and light spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, straw and light spice with a smooth dry finish.

An ok beer. Mild and sweet. Has a bit of grass and banana to it. Not bad for a summer session beer. Also, you can now find it in bottles. Picked one up at the central market in Houston in 2013.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Straw, a little pale, lots of haze (unexpected), moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet straw/hay on the nose.   Fairly assertive.   Spritzy wheaty/grassiness up front.   Mild sweetness.   Not as bright as other examples, a bit more wheaty too... not that I mind.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, feels a bit heaftier than others.   Lingering wheaty and grassy notes, mild sweetness, clean.   I guess not reading the description there was some bavarian yeast used, which explains this beer.   Not quite a Kolsch, but on a hot day if you want something with a little bit more body than your average Kolsch, this one is it.   Thanks Bill for the bottle!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a murky gold. Small head and lacing. Big yeasty nose. A little spice up front giving way to banana in the finish. A nice twist on Lawnmower and very refreshing.

devman171 (1142) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2013
On draft at the brewery, Pours hazy yellow with medium head. Aroma is banana esters, and yeast. Taste is the same with a sweet finish, a lighter belgian style wheat, nice beer

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2013
Poured into a shitty hotel glass. White head and a hazy, yellow color. Aromas of banana, yeast, flaked wheat, whipped cream. Immediate flavors of banana, grass. Leaves a pleasantly sweet flavor in your mouth. This is a very interesting take on the kölsch style, and very well-done.

floral, grass, cooked vegetables, waterd down ,golden, minimal head, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, soft carbonation, it was like a coors beer with a few adjustments,

Something about the lightly bitter taste, that turns sweet after the drink. Also, a slight, freshly cut lawn aroma. I love this refreshing, Bavarian hoppy Weedwacker. (Beware, every time I get this on draft, I hate it. I love it in a bottle though)
