Bomber served in glass. Alcohol hidden well for a pilsner. Sweet citrus aroma with a hopped up taste. Somewhat disappointed in the watery finish, would like to see some more flavor linger. Overall, not bad and 75 cents of my $5.00 going to a good cause. Bravo Abita!

This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

Golden pour with a generous head that lasts throughout and leaves some lacing. Hoppy and lemony nose. Smooth and malty start with a lightly carbonated palate followed by a pleasant, moderately-hopped finish.

Pours a beautiful golden color with a fluffy white head. Aromas of sweet malt, wheat, some citrus and hops. A nice sweet flavor with grass and wheat. Very interesting and very good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light, slightly hazy yellow with a moderate head. It has a mild, slightly estery aroma. The taste is of dry buttermilk biscuits with a hint of hop bite. Not horrible, but not that good either. Great cause though, so I’m happy to help.

Not much aroma. It pours a lemony tint with a nice foamy head. It tastes decent, if not particularly remarkable. Smooth, dry, a little hoppy and bitter. It’s nice. Would definitely drink again on its own merits, regardless of the charitable cause. A good summer drink.

Pours hazy golden amber w/ a rocky white head. Nice lacing. Floral & citrus hops in the nose with some yeasty sour notes w/ the malts. Avg carbonation, med body, crisp but a bit syrupy. Clean finish. Some biscuits, grain, honey, and malts. There’s an earthiness, piney hops & bitterness. Solid pils.

Found this at Brix in Omaha. Great looking painted bomber. Pilsners aren’t usually my thing but I figured that, considering the cause, I could give this one a go. Hats off to Abita, who came up with this idea. This is a 22 ounce bomber. I’m pouring it into a big ass pilsner glass. Pours with a two inch huge, billowing, frothy head. The head leaves behind some serious lacing. Gigantic bubbles and foam from this one. Likewise carbonation is huge, with fizz seemingly going on for days. Pours cloudy, which isn’t surprising considering this is an unfiltered beer. Color is a bright gold, brilliant like the sun. Aroma is pretty hefty, especially for a pilsner, with cereal notes and lemongrass in the nose. Pretty solid amount of bitterness in this one - it’s pleasant though. Lively mouthfeel with a high amount of pleasant carbonation and a pretty slick mouthfeel. Taste is spot on. Light malt starts, before giving way to grassy and fruity hop character. Bitterness teases the palate before giving way to a sweet honey finish. The biscuity malt sweetness really helps to hide the 7% ABV, which I can’t seem to really find. Really crisp and refreshing take on the pilsner style. Kudos to Abita for supporting a good cause by putting together a great beer.

Grassy and mildly floral imperial pilsner. Light biscuit flavors and not a strong alcohol presence considering the abv.
