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.

Light gold, dissipating white head. Nice aroma, bready, hops, yeast, bit floral. On the thin side, light, a bit frivolous, but tasty, leans bitter. Wouldn’t be averse to sessioning it.

DrNosha (691) - Baden Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2015
12oz Flasche. Hellgelbe Farbe leicht trüb mit luftigem weissen Schaum. Zitrone und Hefe in der Nase. Frischer hefiger Geschmack. Als Kölsch für mich so nicht erkennbar.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden, head dissipates quickly but retains a bit of film. Aroma is spices, clove, pepper, yeast, faint banana. Taste is banana, pepper, faint spice. Medium body, medium to heavy carbonation. A bit of a dry finish. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Nose and taste are kind of bready and citrus. Some banana.

Rated based on notes taken 16 May 2014 -- highly drinkable brew, very spritzy. Malt base is sufficient. Good summer brew.

SPDickerman (1080) - Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Pours clear golden yellow with a large white head. Smells malty with some hoppiness to back it up. Taste is malty, crisp, some bitterness. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Saint Arnold Weedwacker finishes with a soft grainy, malty sweetness.

Taste like a very dry Kölsch! tastes pretty close to Reissdorf Kolsch. I like lawn mower better though

nearbeer (4389) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 15, 2015
12 oz. pours hazy gold with a sizzling-away head. Nose is clove, toast and lemon honey. Flavor is earthy honey with some spicy clove and banana dryness. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a good balance. Not great, but amazing what an improvement the Bavarian yeast made to the base Lawnmower beer which I drank (and almost finished the whole 12 oz!) just prior to this one.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, dough into some white fruit, orange, some slight biscuit notes as well. Taste was a mix of dough, bread, hints of yeast into some fruit, vanilla, touch of spice, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.

Lagerboy (1660) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
12 FL. OZ. bottle. Mostly clear dull yellow, lasting thin white foam. Fruity yeasty biscuity aroma. Taste is quite fruity, Hefe yeast is somewhat overpowering, bready bland malts, some citrus. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. An uneccessary hybrid. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Interresting beer (even more when you drink it expecting another experience!). The hefeweizen yeast on this beer has really done its job. Nice banana aroma and refreshing beer.
