BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States
saintarnold.com

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Weedwacker is essentially a Bavarian hefeweizen. Except it isn’t. Weedwacker is exactly the same beer as Fancy Lawnmower Beer but we ferment it with Bavarian hefeweizen yeast instead of kölsch yeast. It is light and refreshing but has a spicy clove note and some banana esters that come from the different yeast. Weedwacker is our only unfiltered year-round beer.

A pretty good one here. Beer has cloudy color with minimal head. At first sniff, you will find banana and nuts. Taste is fruity, citrus and banana to be specific. Smooth and very refreshing, perfect for the Summer months.

Trying this beer at Ruby's in Terminal E of Houston Bush Airport. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent typical of most Heffe hints of clove and banana. The taste follows the scent and has some bread like tones. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Great beer. Golden color, very light carbonation - almost no foam head. It has strong wheat flavors with a smooth, malty finish. Enjoyable all around. Try this one of you see it.

L: Cloudy and light amber in color with minimal head and uneven carbonation on the surface.

S: Very sweet banana and nutty aroma.

T: Crisp fore-notes of citrus, with a banana body.

F: Carbonation is mild and overall quite smooth. Very refreshing.

O: Very good Hefeweizen, especially for warm or hot weather.
