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.

At a tasting, thanks beer_and_beyond, pours an hazy yellow with a nice head, aroma of bubblegum, olives and spices, flavor of bubblegum, apple, clove, lemon grass, medium bodied.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. As "Saint Arnold Centenni*ale Blonde Ale". Hazy yellow-ish golden color. Yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Sweetish fruity flavor with light spiciness. Light-medium-bodied. A Kolsch?! Really?!

This beer has a Old Milwaukee appearance, yet it has some hints of Belgian Ale taste. I am not sure I could drink it all day but it might work in a pinch

Lawnmower isn’t my favorite Kolsch but I still like it better than this (apparently successful, based on its expanded availability) experiment. I’m not a purist who thinks a certain style need always be done the traditional way but in this case I find the Hefe yeast distracting from the crisp Kolsch base.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 17, 2011
bottle-pours lightly hazy dark yellow with a small fizzy white head. nose is yeasty banana and lite grains. has a spice to it as well, which makes it a bit more nice. flavors are banana up front, with some medicinal notes followed by a litely grainy finish with lingering banana. However, this is not a hefe, its both kolsch and hefe half and half in my taste. however, since this is listed as a kolsch, i think its pretty cool. if this were a hefe, i would think its terrible. a very quafible beer even on a colder day. however, this would be amazing on a hot texas day! I hope its still around by then.

BeerCast_Rich (1869) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2011
[355ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Clear, lemon yellow pour. Big white head. Yeasty, slightly Belgian aroma. Saison-esque flavours of yeasty lemon – but also some sweet butter in there. Ends quite abruptly, and a bit spicy. You can definitely detect the Hefe yeast. Sampled alongside the Lawnmower – to be honest I preferred that to this [03122011]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2011
In bottle next to the Lawnmower. I much prefer this beer. Pours a pale straw colour with a decent white head. Aroma of popcorn, biscuity malt, lemon, grass and yeast. Similar flavours with a chewy mouth-feel. Not bad.

On tap at the brewery, pleasantly surprised by this beer. Hazy golden hue with a small white head. Aromas are grassy, grainy and estery with noticeable 4vg clove notes. Flavors are spicy, clove, black peppery, light esters. Dry grainy notes. Lively bubbles, light bodied, dry. Really nice and dry which aides quaffability. Really easy drinking, tasty stuff!
