2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden beer, quite hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite wheaty, light orange peel with some light berryish fruitiness in back. There is also some sweet nuttiness that is a bit surprising is such a pale beer. Flavour is a bit butterscotchy which is probably where the nutty aroma is coming from. Watery palate and moderate bitterness iwth a lingering orange peel/diacetyl flavour. Itís a pretty boring brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Perfectly clear amber orange color, poured with a fine tall head in a pilsener flute. Slightly fruity and gummy wheat and grain nose. Lemon and soap scents primarily, but thereís some melon scents as well that are kind of nice. Moderately hoppy sweet fruit flavor, clean and crisp on the tongue, with some light grain and sugar flavor. Wet palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold pour with 2-finger white head. Aroma was of heavy noble hops, citrus, some honey, malt, and fruit. Not a bad aroma. The flavor was a letdown after sniffing this one. I got some hopcit and slight fruit plus some phenols. Watery palate. Buying this one made me feel good, but drinking it did not.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a thin ring of white head. Semi-sweet grainy, mildly floral aroma. Starts with a hint of sugar, some dry, full crystal malt and noble hops with a dry grainy finish. A fairly bland and uninteresting beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, BB 4/3/06. Poured a clear, dim amber with a tall cap of frothy white head. Nose had notes of citrus and flowery hops, wheat, and bready pils malts. Flavor was a unpleasantly-constructed tapestry of grainy wheat, corn, sour lemon rind, bread, and tacky caramel sweetness... not bad elements in and of themselves, but did not work well here. Lighter-bodied. Palate was all over the place with sour notes, wheaty tartness, soap, and bitterness... again did not flow. Great cause, though.
