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.

Before starting my account on beer advocate, Weedwacker was one of my go to favorites, especially when I'm drinking on a budget. Reviewing it now, I'm honestly not too surprised at my rating.

On tap at St. Arnold's, much better than the average bottled Weedwacker. Nice wheat taste, Bavarian yeast shining in this on tap. Grassy, lemony, citrus wheat. A little bit of spice to round it out, some coriander. Cheeeeers.
