Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen.

A: Golden hue. Moderate effervescence. Pours a half finger, bubbly, white head. Settles quickly. No real lacing.

S: Wheat, yeast, lemon citrus, and freshly cut grass.

T: Very wheat forward, prominent amounts of lemon citrus. Tastes like it smells.

M: Light, crisp, and refreshing. A little citrus hangs on the palate.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Moderate effervescence, slight head, no real lacing. Nose is wheaty and nicely accentuated with plenty of grass and citrus. Wheat and crisp citrus. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Saint Arnold Weedwacker is according to the company website the exact same beer as Saint Arnold Lawnmower Kolsch. Except Hefeweisen Yeast is used instead of the Lager Yeast used in Lawnmower. So this really isn't a wheat, or a wit, or a Hefeweisen. It is tasty though.

I have had this maybe twice over the last decade. Its rarely as available as Lawnmower even here in Houston. And probably with good reason. This is an awkward brew.

Bought fresh from my local Spec's Liquor. Poured overly cold (30°) straight into a standard drinking glass.
Pours an unfiltered, hazy golden hue. Creamy white head that lasted almost until I had finished the whole glass.
Smells slightly grainy and sweet. Faintest hint of spice. Can't tell if its clove or coriander.

Tastes very smooth and crisp. Very light and refreshing. But there is a definite spice characters sneaking around in the background. You get a big swell of spice up front that fades away. Actually at a very very low temperature this beer "swigs" like an AAL or a Kolsch or a Euro Lager. But the spice seems to pop up in the end again. I am not a huge fan of Spiced Wits or Weisse or any of the family of styles. The coriander and clove is not appealing to me. But these tasting notes are mild in this beer.

Overall this is a fine beer. Highly drinkable and very interesting mesh of styles. Not my favourite or something I would drink regularly. But I would not turn it down if offered to me. Looking forward to sampling the other two fine Saint Arnold offerings I bought later this evening. And looking forward to downing the other 5 Weedwackers in my fridge.

Cheers!!! Hail to the Redskins!!!!!!
