3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The site was down so long, I’ll have to do this from a rough memory... I didn’t know what to expect from this beer. Had on draft at Beerfest on Bourbon St. New Orleans. Decent head, not too heavy. Has a bit of an abbey aroma, spiced and fruity. Drinks a bit like a barleywine, so I can’t put this in a category. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I haven’t had too much great stuff from abita, but this trip changed my perception.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Light malt body with crisp hop finish. Seems more like a nice slightly sweet pale ale than anything else. Probably the best I’ve ever had from Abita, though it’s nothing super.

I used to hang out with alligators in college when I was down and out. They always cheered me up and led me in the right direction. One of my sons name is Andy. This one should be a hit. It was not the hit I expected.

Had this one bottled, thanks Papi! This is really not my style, but I did think it had a nice balance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, $1.89 at Kroger on Bridge St. Pale gold color; bubbly, white head turns almost instantly into a thin ring and sparse covering; light lacing. Aroma is light; yeasty, banana, cloves, fruity, slight bread. Flavor is also light; disappointing at first but become more complex as I drank this; more Belgian yeast notes and banana/cloves; bready, only slightly bitter, dry finish. Medium-thin mouthfeel. Not remotely what the billed style suggests (I’ve never before seen a "doppelbock" that looked almost the same as Budweiser), but not entirely uninteresting. I should know better by now than to expect great things from Abita (even in a higher gravity beer such as this one), but this one got better as the glass emptied.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca. Poured into snifter at home with a thick white head. Golden wheat color with a significant haze. Aroma of bread, hay, bananas. The taste is mild like most hellers with a bread taste and very slight fruit. Dry on the finish with no real hop profile. Very light body, medium carb. Clean and crisp. Not bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep-gold with a large, creamy, persistent lacy head. Sweet orange bread malt-forward in the aroma. Orange malt-foarward and bread on the palate with a huge velvety mouthfeel that hides the 8% ABV superbly. Well-balanced Doppelbock! Little-to-no detectable hops. Overall, this is a good American version of the style worthy of the fasting Friars of Munich!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Relying on a simple malt driven profile ,this beer is very clean. Bread-like notes akin to crystal malts overwhelm the entirety of this beer, with honey and light piney notes in the background. Overall it’s cheap and pretty easy to drink with a smooth profile.
