COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike traditional German wheat beers produced by other breweries, Abita Wheat is a lager, not an ale, contains a generous amount of wheat and, therefore, has a clean, simple flavor. Available from June to September.

Reviewed from notes, had last year on draught when in NOLA. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Raw wheat, bread, and cereal on the nose; follows onto the palate. The lager yeast gives this an interesting mouthfeel compared to a wheat ale. Not bad.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, wheat, and citrus. Bland.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy whitish straw with a resilient white head. Smell is skunk and yeast. Taste is wheat, yeast, sweet and bread. Light bitterness, is it herbal? Is it actually skunk? Light to medium bodied. Weak carbonation. Not a very good lager...

Bottle. Pours a yellow gold with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a skunk grass and corn malt. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet corn malt and honey. Decent pale lager.

The fact that Abita made this a lager really seems to have taken out the flavor. Why even call it a Wheat? The aroma was light malt. The color unremarkable with no head. No lacing either. The favor was barely above that of a big brew lager. This was nothing like a wheat ale. There where barely any wheat notes. The palate was thin. It was easy to drink with a big meal but seriously left me wanting more. Not something I would go back to again.

bottle. light gold with small head. if you could bottle boringness, this is what it would taste like. grainy wheat brew with no objectionable taste, but nothing going for it either.

superspak (2608) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, best before 9/27/2012. Pours lightly cloudy pale straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, biscuit, wheat, pepper, grass, herbal, floral, grape, and light earthiness. Pretty good aromas here actually; fairly weak, but they have a typical well balanced German lager feel to them. Taste of grass, bread, wheat, herbal, earth, pear, and pepper. Lingering notes of light grass and bread on the finish for a short bit. Extremely bland in the flavor department, almost like carbonated water for real. Extremely dry on the finish as expected for the lack of flavors. Medium carbonation and light body; with an extremely crisp and dry mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming noticed as expected for 4.2%. Overall a pretty mediocre wheat lager. The aromas were pretty good, but the lack of flavor was a let down. It is certainly crisp, clean, and drinkable though.

Sweet wheat aroma. Clear yellow color with a small white head. Mild beginning with a building mild sweetness and light tangy bitterness in the finish.
