Tasting this after jambalaya. Works well with Cajun. Clean aroma, but hard to pin down. The finish is bitter hop. A very clean drink. The principal aspect is a very good mouth feel. A bit tangy. The finish suggests another.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz. bottle. Pours a clean golden honey with tiny bubbles fastly rising to the surface where a tiny frothy white head quickly diminishes to a film with lined lacing. Sweet yeast and malt (straw, meal) aroma flanked by some fruity hop notes, apple and grape. Sweet light malt and yeast body with a low bitter and acidic fruity hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy, almost creamy palate. This beer would make a great treat on a hot day to quench a thirst.

Bottle, thanks Deepsouth!! Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is of malts,hops and something funky. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma. Malty and hops are present...no complexity but as with most Abita beers I find it prett smooth.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Sublte nose; almost nondescript. The flavor is perfectly balanced, but uninspiring. I can only pick up some tanginess up front, followed closely by a laid-back bitterness. Fairly thin on the palate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. Medium length, almost tart, then dry finish.
