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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer with a small, white head. Quite a few microfloaties as well. Lots of bubblegum on the nose, with lemon and some orange, a touch of wheat and cloves. The cloves are more present in the flavor, especially in the finish, with the bubblegum, banana, lemon and wheat present all the way. It’s quite lemony sour on the palate, medium to thin bodied, and with a too hard carbonation, although not effervescent. Long finish. In my opinion, there’s too much bubblegum and acidity in this one, but at least it goes down easily. Until the gas makes it too filling. 130829

brokensail (11543) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
A: The pour is a pale golden straw color with a finger of white head. S: Seems to have a bit of corn to it as well as some pale malts. Not much in the way of hops, maybe a little floral hop aroma. Might actually have some rice, too. T: A very light flavor. Some sweet corn and rice flavors with a pale malt/bread flavor. As with the aroma, not much hop flavor. There is a little bit of bitterness and perhaps some floral hops. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Pretty typical, mediocre blonde ale.

bhensonb (11510) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle from the Texas trading fiend: ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is strongly banana with a little spice. Near med body til the carbonation leaves. Flavor is principally banana, but there’s fairly strong clove. Maybe there should be a hefebarley style? Pretty drinkable.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle from ericandersnavy, thanks! Blonde, cloudy, chunks of yeast. No head. Vinegar in the slightly herbal and dusty aroma. Wheaty, sweetish flavor with dusty notes and hints of citrus. Disappointing.

355mL thanks to blutt59. Pours a hazy straw to gold looking with witbier with a larger, bright white head. Good retention and big rings of lace. Nose is estery and mild banana- pretty hefeweizen yeast forward. Pretty intense butter in the nose. Taste is big carbonation, mild soap, decent butter heftiness, fresh dough. Not bad...a little buttery.

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 10, 2011
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!
