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.

Had at 2014 Joplin Ozarks Beerfest. Caramel, boozy, buttery. Strong flavor, but to the point of being overpowering.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2014
Radiant and bright pastel orange with mild carbonation and a mostly lasting white foam. Melonous, bready mix on the nose with plenty of candied fruit chews coming through. Sweet, sickly, candyish, fairy floss/cotton candy flooded palate. There is supple, sweet malt to balance the sweet fruit esters and candied sweet overtones offering a sweet complexity of sugary sweetness. Mmmm, teeth rattling fun!!!! Medium light in body and moderate in carbonation but nothing detracts from the sugary mess. Heated, alcohol spice to the gammy sweet swallow. Filtered and pasteurised meaning it will never further develop in the bottle to rid those pent up sugars. That sucks as hidden underneath could be a delightful hellerbock. Just weird!

draft; light amber color; crisp; just slightly sweet malt and just enough noble hops to make it a well balanced beer

Bottle from Whole Foods. Aroma is weak. Appearance is apple juice. Palate is full and thick. Taste is a strong light malty flavor with lingering aftertaste. A little better than Hurricane High Gravity or Natty Daddy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Pours a clear yellow with a typical creamy, white head. Aromas of caramel and sweet malts. Creamy mouth feel with notes of bread and pepper. Not sure what to make of this, but not for me.

Tap at Lazy Dog Macon. Pours transparent orange with white head. Aroa of malts. Tastes of malt, caramel and toffee. Medium-bodied. Not that great.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Orange-amber and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Malty aroma and flavor with notes of caramel and toffee. Medium to full body with a thick mouth feel and a smooth and creamy finish. OK.

"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."
