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.

Slightly stale, clean aroma. Body of a koelsch with Belgian sensibilities-very floral for a koelsch, but mild-moderate on an absolute scale. Lingering banana on the tongue. Overall, not a classic koelsch, but not bad, either.

rumproasts (2596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
bottle. Golden with small head. Light body with a hint of banana sweetness and some mild but crisp hops. Makes more sense to my tastebuds now that I see it’s a kolsch with hefe yeast.

Ferris (2046) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle - Sweet honey, lemon and a touch of banana. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Banana, honey and a touch of tartness in the finish. Not bad, bun nothing great.

This is my first kolsch so I have nothing to compare it to. My first impression is it's a little grape/winey, lemon, orange, wheat, viney. Not hoppy, not overly dry or sweet. Moderate mouthfeel, moderate carb. Overall very light and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (1949) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
In comparison to the fancy lawnmower. The beer starts typical wheat-beer-like. Smooth, yeasty, some banana. The mainpart is fresh, smooth, slightly sweet and wheatbeerish. In the aftertaste long, intense yeasty, fresh and malty with a slight sweetness.
Nice fresh beer! --> 12/12/12/12

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

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2014
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 (4497) - 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
