    Wow! I've always considered Abita a few steps below the great brewers like Stone and others. A blue collar brewer if you like. But this beer has got me scratching my head. It's good. Really good. Not quite a Belgian, but it's not trying to be. It's just what its supposed to be... an easy drinking helles doppelbock.

    Pours out to a sparkly clear medium golden, forming a finely beaded white frothy head with superior retention and lacing. The aroma has a distinct pale malt character with a hint of toast and biscuit. The taste is quite good...pale malt with biscuit note, very clean and letting the malt toast shine through with a well balanced clean bitterness. The mouth feel is crisp, briskly carbonated, medium dense bodied, finishing slightly sweet and with a touch of syrup left in the mouth afterwards.

    This is not really representative of how much i like the style. This example is just a little overly sweet and grainy, without that distinct liquid bread aspect I so love. Below average for the style. Still ok overall.

    This is one of those beers that offers nothing to excite you. It's good enough, just very forgettable. Pale gold pour and grainy aroma/taste make it hard to believe this is a doppelbock. Just ok.

    A bold sunshine of color. A small foamy textured white head rises briefly above. Settles into a medium sized ringlet. I hame getting a pome (apple/pear) fruitiness in the nose. Chilled the same fruit is there. As it warms a nice balance of grassy hops appears. Medium bodied, effervescent and creamy

    Good story, buddy (Mike) brings me this back after doing some work in LA. Reason for this beer, A drunkin agrument in Tulum mexico about which album by indie rockers, The National is better. I say Alligator, he says Boxer. The story of how I got this beer. Anyways..... after depositing in Snaring River for an appropriate time, really germannic though much less carbonated, fruity and a bit sour, something carmellish.... but its a bit off putting. Perfectly balanced and drinkable, but hmmmm, just not in love, less than the sum of its parts.

    It pours a bright gold and yellow with a thick and foamy white head and some lacing. A fruity aroma of sweet malts, apples, oranges, berries, bread and yeast, honey, and mild spices. The mouthfeel is smooth, although a bit thin. Flavors of sweet malts, hops, honey, citrus fruits, light apple, bread and yeast, and spices. Good!

    Haha...was cleaning out an old work notebook and found this review scribbled on a scrap piece of paper. I can’t even remember which business trip this was from. *shrug*. Pour was light golden color with small white frothy head. Aroma was sweet and grainy. Sweet flavor with grassy/hay notes and an imperial pilsner kind of feel to it. Kinda too sweet. Sticky and coating on the tongue. Had trouble finishing the bottle by myself.

    This poured a pee pee yellow color with a white head. The aroma is lemons, hay, and cooked veggies. The flavor is malty but kind of harsh with some corn, hay, and some metallic ting to it. Oh man sakes alive I got a whole bomber left of this, alright lets get it over with!

    Blond and not really memorable. I thought I had read positive things about this, but I just don't see anything repeatable or desirable here. Barely any flavor, with a slight trace of berry sweetness at the finish. Completely forgettable. Thin and straw yellow. No head or foam. Glad I didn't buy this.
