COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The newest Abita brew takes its name and inspiration from the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans. Looking for Indians on Mardi Gras Day is a tradition for many New Orleans families. A cultural phenomenon familiar to residents of the Crescent City, the Mardi Gras Indians are not well known to outsiders and Abita is proud to help share their story with the world.

Clear copper color, steady off-white head. Sweet, berry-honeyish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grassy, woody, a bit medicinal hoppyness in the flavor. Some odd spices?

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Bottle from T’s Liquor in Tempe, AZ. Pours amber with a decent beige head. Fruity hop aroma over mild caramel. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is resin and fruit (citrus?) over caramel. It seems a bit harsh, but arguably balanced. Not a smooth one.
