COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fleur-de-lis Restoration Ale is made with English Pale, Lager, Crystal and Cara Pils malted barley. We liberally hopped and dry hopped our Ale with American Cascade and Centennial hops and fermented it with California Ale yeast. The result is a brilliant gold ale with a rich body, mild bitterness and a snappy fresh citrus hop flavor and aroma.

CPH2200 (264) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle 5.2% abv. Promising hoppy aroma. Taste with citrus notes but a watery mouthfeel so it ends up rather dissapointing. A shame.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, floral and grassy hops, a splash of citrus. There wasn’t much going on with this.

Jado (488) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a sudsy white head and moderate carbonation. Strong aromas of tropical fruit (pineapple, lime, guava), sweet pastry and a floral note. Taste is sweet biscuit at the front before a zesty bitterness comes through. Short finish with a lightly fruity aftertaste. A bit unbalanced but pretty refreshing all the same.

TXBadger (1217) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Some pine, grass, and caramel malt on the nose of this; follows onto the palate. Some flowery notes come in on the finish.

BadAprilia1000 (233) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a light golden color. Smells a bit hoppy. Taste is underwhelming. Nothing much more to say about this beer. Disappointing compared to other Abita beers I’ve tried.
