Yaâ€™ll gatta love the names and flavorsÂ of these beers even if you don’t mow the lawn or weedwack!Â Â I haveÂ had manyÂ beers (actually I have tasted all of them) fromÂ Saint ArnoldÂ® Brewery here in Houston, but theÂ Fancy LawnmowerÂ is by far my favorite so when I spied the Weedwacker they recently came out with I just had toÂ try it!Â Not only is the name fabulous, but the beer is as well!Â Â Regardless if lawn mowing or weedwacking is fancy or notÂ the beers sure are “fancy” fabulous!
A little bit of information about the beers from the Saint ArnoldÂ® website:
Saint ArnoldÂ® Fancy Lawn Mower
â€œA true German-style KÃ¶lsch. Originally brewed in Cologne, this beer is crisp yet has a sweet malty body that is balanced by a complex, citrus hop character. Multiple additions of German Hallertauer hops are used to achieve this delicate flavor. We use a special KÃ¶lsch yeast, an ale yeast that ferments at lager temperatures, to yield the slightly fruity, clean flavor of this beer.â€
Saint ArnoldÂ® Weedwacker
â€œWeedwacker is essentially a Bavarian hefeweizen. Except it isnâ€™t. Weedwacker is exactly the same beer as Fancy Lawnmower Beer but we ferment it with Bavarian hefeweizen yeast instead of kÃ¶lsch yeast. It is light and refreshing but has a spicy clove note and some banana esters that come from the different yeast. While it is a close relation to Lawnmower, it tastes completely different. Also, Weedwacker is our only unfiltered year-round beer. Expect to see some yeast at the bottom of the bottle.â€
