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.

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

SPDickerman (1047) - 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 (4118) - 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 (8582) - 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 (1536) - 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.

On tap at the brewery. Horrid kolsch ale with monstorous hefe bsnnana zombie yeast. Gmooha!

crossovert (9064) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
355ml twist off bottle. Pee gold with a fizzy quickly dissipating head. The aroma is tart with grain husk and a hint of sugar. Flavor has some banana and spice notes. Perhaps a large red kristalweizen? It drinks okay. Not like a koelsch but decent. Edit; upon entering my notes here I see it is indeed what I thought it was and on purpose, phew.

Dear brewer: If you are going to do wheat beer, do wheat beer. If you are going to do Kölsch, stick to Kölsch. Fails as a Kölsch (as does lawnmower) and is actually a run of the mill, watery wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (4397) - Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Rated on 02-18-2013 at Saint Arnold B.C. This draft beer has a small white head with a lengthy retention, transparent straw body, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is yeast, grainy, grassy, banana, spice, clove, and malt. The flavor is yeast, clove, spice, banana, sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and dry. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and a session beer. It has a nice flavor to it and is worth trying.
