Light beer that has a fruity taste to it. Golden in color and easily drinkable if you like fruit style beers.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
12 fl.oz. can. Hazy golden in the glass with a malty nose. No hints of raspberries yet. The beer starts smooth, malty and slightly fruity. Raspberries not really. In the mainpart there is a it more raspberry-fruitiness, with smooth yeast and only slightly bitterness. The aftertaste is smooth, hints of raspberries together with smooth yeast.
Interesting brew, but the raspberries are very subtle. --> 10/12/11/10

12 ounce bottle. Cloudy amber color topped by a small beige head. Fruity malt aroma. Notes of raspberry and tangerine. Tart fizzy light wheat malt flavor. More like a shandy than a beer. Raspberry flavor dominates. Little body or overall flavor.

I wish Abita would get off of the Malt beverage kick when it comes to their seasonal or specialty beers. Malt beverages suck.

Summery feel/taste. Good alternative to Blue Moon (if, that is, Blue Moon isn't available). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
