Wheat (May – September) German brewers discovered centuries ago that the addition of wheat produces a distinctively light, refreshing beer. Unlike traditional German wheat beers produced by other breweries, Abita Wheat is a lager, not an ale, and contains a generous amount of wheat which produces a clean, simple flavor. For a change of pace, try Abita Wheat with a twist of lemon. Feta and goat cheeses pair well with Wheat beer. Great with summertime fare such as pasta and salads, but don’t forget barbeque and anything right off the grill.

    A beer of the month club entry for Sep/Oct 2010. A moderate slightly cloudy with a bit of a soapy mouth feel. Should be ok on a hot summer day, with the beverage extra cold.

    a real clean wheatbeer that lacked a lot in taste,and lacked aroma. The top foam fell flat quickly,a nice color.This was another one received in a variety pack as a gift.

    Wheat... it's what's for dinner. This beer has more wheat than whole-wheat bread. Cloudy, golden color, thin wimpy head, minimal lacing and poor flavor. Not one for Abita to be proud of.

    Pours a clear dark amber with not much of a head. Aroma is malty and a little wheaty, no citrus tone. Flavor is refreshing, though, mainly malty and a little wheaty with just a subtle hint of spice. Texture is fizzy and lively so you know this is indeed a good beer.

    (From notes dated 12 Sep. 2008). Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. The pour looks much like expected, a pale straw colour with a white head. Unexpectedly, the head was huge, though looking back, that might have been from my pour. The head stayed high for a few minutes before settling into a thin film. Lacing was decent. The nose is mostly wheat with a hint of citrus. The taste is more of the same with a dry finish. Mouthfeel is thin with a lot of carbonation. Drinkability is average; it goes down easily, and the dry finish leaves my mouth wanting more. Overall, it's an average example of the style. I doubt I will be revisiting since there are better examples out there.

    had this at a brewfest, and i need to remember not to bother with this one in the future. abita has a couple ok beers, but as a whole are pretty boring, asis this beer. standard aroma and taste for a wheat, but thin, and the flavor comes in small doses.

    A couple of Louisiana brews tonight courtesy of Suds McDuff, for the Pack versus the Saints. This light wheat beer pours a hazy lemon-yellow with a thick foamy white head. Light sour lemon scent with a thin and crisp mouthfeel. Mild wheat, lemon and honey flavors; not much happening here; almost as anemic as the Packers special teams coverage. Refreshing enough, but bland and listless. The game's been much more exciting...

    Abita definitely has some interesting beers that are different from the rest. This is listed as an American wheat and it does say wheat on the label. Brown 12 oz short stubby bottle with a twist off cap. It pours somewhat like a wheat, with just a little haze. The color is a somewhat lemon yellow hue. Has a hint of aroma that is yeasty and somewhat wheaty in nature. The initial flavor is somewhat bitter, and is not much like other wheat flavors I am familiar with. It is more somewhat lager-like with hints of bitterness. Good carbonation with constantly rising bubbles that don’t really qualify as lacing. Finish is interesting, medium bitterness that fades rapidly. This beer wears the costume of a wheat but has the personality of a mild ale-like lager. I’ve tasted pale lagers that are more wheatlike than this.

    This beer was fairly average for a american wheat, golden yellow body, and a thin white head, flavors of wheat and a little lemon, aftertaste very slight hint of honey. A decent but not outstanding beer.

    Aroma is malty sweet with some grainy nuiances as well as some lemon zest and spice with slight hints of milkiness and breadiness. Appearance is a golden color, more so like a blonde or cream ale, with some haze with a bubbly head on top that is well-carbonated and fuzzy and diminishes to a light lacing that is bleach-white in color. Mouthfeel is light-bodied with decent complexity as well as some balance with a palate that is crisp and clean but a tad boring. Flavor is lemon zest and grain with some malty sweetness with an aftertaste that is clean and not really wheaty with a finish that is light. Overall, interesting brew here and it is makred as a wheat but is labeled lager. I think we all can agree wheats are ales and, by the way, this screams cream or blonde ale which both imploy lager and ale yeast in the brewing process; decent brew but not worth buying a sixer.
