COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Rather pale for a dopplebock with a dark straw or light golden color. Short-lived white head. A bit of malt in the aroma, not much else; has an almost lager-like smell. Tastes of weak, watered-down malt with a little grain. Low carbonation. A disappointment.

Pours a hazy golden color. Slight head. No head retention, light lacing.

Aroma is buttery, white grape. Light roasted malt. Sweet. Smells good, just not a lot to report.

Taste is fruity. White grapes, slightly peppery and spicy. It’s quite malty. It’s sweet. No bitterness, if any hops it would be floral hops. There’s probably some corn adjunct in here.

Mouthfeel is medium light. High alcohol beer, but you can’t taste it, you can feel it though...Pretty drinkable. Pretty well carbonated.

Overall, pretty good. I’d probably buy it again. It does have some oddities about it, it’s not amazing or memorable. But it is interesting enough that I’d try it again.

Aroma: combination of lager and apple juice; not very pleasant; Appearance: clear and flat, actually very similar to apple juice; was expecting something darker for a doppelbock; decent head that dissipates quickly; Taste: like the aroma, very juice-like with slight undertones of lager; faint funkiness; Palate: medium body with short, slightly dry and bitter finish (probably the best part of the beer); Overall: pretty blah. Would not buy again.

Bottle (12 oz) at home. Bought this for the Louisiana tick, but SAQ started having one in store right after so I busted 12 oz of my border limit on this insipid beer. Almost clear bright yellow-ish golden with a medium mostly lasting white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is of noble hops but also bring out the worst of the leafy hops presence. There’s also some mild to moderate spiciness, grains and even hints of skunkiness. Taste isn’t better with dirty leaf presence, some earthy spiciness, beginning of a skunky presence here too, grain and an unpleasant acrid finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Sticky mix of leafy and earthy bitternss. This is awful and undrinkable. No malt depth, just an acrid, earthy and leafy mess.

Ar: bread and yeast, some spice, a hint of something floral. Ap: clear pale amber, decent white head but dissipates quickly T: slightly sweet with some bitterness P: thin, light body with mild carbonation. Alcohol finish, doesn’t quite manage to hide the ABV O: Not sure the ’Helles Doppelbock’ thing is working here. Doesn’t seem to do a good job making the styles work together. Another disappointment from Abita for me.

Growler from Big Hops. Pale amber, mostly clear with thin white head. Sweet, fruity malt aroma. Drinks sweet and smooth. Not bad.

Pours as a light golden with a cream colored light head. Aroma is malt driven with notes of banana and citrus. First taste begins with a bread/malt flavor laced with a fruity sweetness and finishes with a strong alcohol presence, notes of citrus, and a lingering sweetness. A decent brew but not fantastic. Serves well as a light, after dinner choice.
