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.

Draught at Sunset Grill, early 2008. Wasnt sure what this was at the time of drinking it, but thought it was some Belgian Strong Golden, though I suppose a heller doppel bock is reasonable. It says fermented to a dry finish, and while I wont call it overly dry, by any means, its not obnoxiously sweet and the alcohol isnt overbearing. Warming allowed for some DMS like flavors and the hops never really made an appearance, but for some floral, lightly dusty notes upon opening. Not offensive, though Im rating it more of a Belgian ale than a doppel bock, which it dosent really resemble in the least bit.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Nothing special here - just another average Helles Doppelbock with no distinct features.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle a clear yellow-gold with a small white head that laces the glass as it dissipates. Malty aromas, pear, maybe a hint of citrus. Rather light body and slightly sticky with soft carbonation. Alcohol comes through and disrupts what would otherwise be a nice, bitter finish

Smooth and refreshing. Had this with dinner at the Angry Crab. It was 115 degrees yesterday and I would drink this again any day. For being 8% ABV very smooth.

Golden and clear with a nice frothy head. Straw, honey, Apple, and chalk aromas. Nice balance between malty sweetness and slight hoppy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little disappointed by other reviewers. In my opinion this is an excellent beer. Of course taste is subjective but I’m getting exactly what the description calls for. Subtle sweetness balanced with a very light hop flavor and nice undertones of fruit. A very good beer that is not over powering in flavor. Alcohol is a different story these guys will sneak up quick watch out!

Bottle in NOLA. Malt aroma. Caramel and biscuit upfront followed by more malt with subtle bitterness in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.

Drank straight from the bottle. Smell is not at all pleasant...something like rotten vegetables. Taste isn’t any better. Sort of fits the name, though. Tastes like a stagnant swamp. Bought a 6 pack and am leaving the rest.

Am I crazy or the aroma smells like light black olives brine ? ,I was expecting some saltiness with the taste as my brain registered olives!, and I was right!, there is some saltiness that my tongue registered all the way through drinking it, nothing great, but its something different to try, alcohol is heavy,and it will get you tipsy !!
