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.

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 (1051) - 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

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.

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)

Brandon1989 (255) - Euless, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2013
from notes: lots of smoke with pour. beer is golden yellow with a small head that does not stay around. the aroma was slightly skunky, wet grass, mild hops, overall not too pleasant. the taste is watery, maybe some grapefruit, grassy, citrus, not very good!

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 18, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy dark yellow colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty yeasty and banana. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of yeast banana hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

if you can find a more refreshing liquid, other than water, please tell me. very good brew, but i must admit, i like regular lawnmower better

Bottle from secret Santa 2012 - blutt59. Pours cloudy pale golden color with white head. Aromas of wheat, light citrus, banana and yeast. Similar flavors. Light and crisp. Tastes like a Hefeweizen. Thanks Bob.
