Saint Arnold Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Saint Arnold Brewing’s Weedwacker has not just one, but three GABF medals for its groundbreaking and rule-breaking recipe. Here’s a reconstruction of the judge’s table at last year’s GABF festival:
Judge #1 -“Oh my, this Weedwacker Hefeweizen from Saint Arnold’s is one of the cleanest and clearest expressions of the style’s banana flavors. It’s one of the best I’ve ever tasted!”
Judge #2 -“But it breaks the rules - it doesn’t even have wheat it it!”
Judge #1 -“I don’t f#%king care, it’s so delicious we’re giving it gold!”
Judge #2 -“Okay fine, as long as I get to take a six-pack home with me!”
Weedwacker backs the peppery banana essence of an authentic Hefeweizen with an electrifying crisp lager-like Kolsch base. Apply Saint Arnold’s proven German expertise and the outcome is devastating refreshment, you’ll want to take a hot shower just to justify having another.
Vigorous fluffy white foam floats atop a hazy grain-filled splash of yellow. Tangy slightly green banana notes float upward alone with delicate white pepper. Zesty lemon flavors fold into vodka-seared bananas. Then, when you might expect heavy wheat to arrive, an ultra-lean lager like body and geysers of bubbles cut through, cooling the tongue.
When most brewers set out making a innovative beer, they add all sorts of crazy ingredients. Innovative beers that also manage to taste natural, familiar, and refreshing like Saint Arnold’s Weedwacker are a true rarity. This incredible beer could easily please your beer geek friend who thinks he’s tried it all or a casual acquaintance who wants a stone-cold quencher.
