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.

Truly sweet and leafy. Has a lemon lime start and finish with leafy hoppy very slight bitterness. Perfect summer brew! I actually just finished mowing

Saint Arnold Weedwacker has a creamy, medium white head and a hazy, swirling straw appearance, with lots of lacing rings and many little floating particles. Lots of streaming bubbles appear. The aroma is of sugar, corriander, banana, spice, and cake. The flavor is similar- so spicy and rich. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Saint Arnold Weedwacker finishes semi-dry and pretty crisp. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. RJT

A very unusual beer to say the least. Faint nose of esthers. Looks like a wit or light hefe. Taste is like that of a very dry hefe. Very nice.

Poured into a shitty hotel glass. White head and a hazy, yellow color. Aromas of banana, yeast, flaked wheat, whipped cream. Immediate flavors of banana, grass. Leaves a pleasantly sweet flavor in your mouth. This is a very interesting take on the kölsch style, and very well-done.

You’ve got to love a beer that’s self-aware. With a name like Weedwacker, you can expect that this brew is made with warm weather in mind. To that end, Weedwacker performs deftly. The straw-colored body and sudsy head create a sexy appearance. Aroma is soft but has lots of sweet grain notes. Flavor is straightforward but brilliantly executed. Smooth malt and subtle yeast at the start and bright, clean, crisp, grassy hops at the end. That finish makes the word "refreshing" seem inadequate. If you can manage not to chug this beer, you’ll be rewarded with a lot of perfectly-balanced malty awesomeness. On a hot summer day this sure beats (wacks?) the hell out of light beer.

its like he’s getting his ass kicked by a ghost...
There was really something to this beer..
Pours a cloudy sunset banana..
light lacing, typical hefe head on the pour but dies down to a well spotted pool..
10:46, get a watch that works...
Light light grass, light banana, and empty spice rack in the nose..
light mouthfeel, has that kolsch refreshment and that touch, that twist of esters..
its an interesting experiment, its similar to an american wheat basically..
happy to have had my two 22oz glasses...
you gotta walk before you can crawl..
reverse that...

Thanks to ericandersnavy for this one in trade. It is the kolsch that tastes a hefe. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is very pleasant: bread, ripe banana, yeast, esters, and floral hops with some sweet lemon peel. Flavor is light citrus, lemon, banana, yeast, and some dryness in the back. This is a polite, how-do-you-do beer that gently and politely introduces itself. Light, flavorful, and summer-loving. Sessionable as hell. I could drink the heck out of this beer.

On draft at Barcadia. Pours an intriguing hazy hellow with a thick creamy white head that only slow dissipates. Wonderful citrus aromas. Citrus notes on the front end, with an excellent balance and long refreshing finish! Very surprised by how delicious this beer is, especially since I am not a huge fan of most St. Arnold beers.

12 oz bottle. Very cloudy light gold pour with nice white head with some lacing. Nose is yeast, banana and a little belgian funk. Taste is crisp with banana, lemon zest, and yeasty doughy goodness. Very nice Kolch.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy yellow with about a half finger of white head. Aroma og citrus and grassy hops. Taste is light sweet and very light bitter. Citrus and grass with banana and yeast. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Pretty good, i would drink it again.
