Bottle - Simple logo but I like it. Thin white head... aroma of citrus and hay, earthy-yeasty-cheesy (that’s my new word) flavors with hoppy bitterness that’s a bit on the skunk side, however, I like it with something spicy. I’m perhaps biased with this brew, but many factors are involved when tasting and I honestly liked this beer. C’est bon.

Bottle shared at the Houston RB July tasting. Thanks to me. Pale yellow hazy. Nose is yeasty and musty, with a tinge of Belgium yeastiness coming through.Taste is the same, with some hay added in! Body is thinnish and a bit harsh. Overall drinkable though and not a first effort from the new Cajun brewery.

Had this one on draft at Avenue Pub.
Appearance: The beer was a nice golden orange with nice white head. Lacing present throughout and creates nice webbing.
Smell: Nice pungent hop aroma with hints of citrus.
Taste: Nicely balanced pale ale. Has a wonderful hop kick which is balanced nicely with the malty sweetness. The hops provide a nice citrus flavor. I could drink this all day.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.
Overall: This is a very well done pale ale. I originally had a bad experience with this beer in the bottle but on draft it was very drinkable and what one should expect with a pale ale. With this company Louisiana is slowly becoming a serious contender for great breweries in the South.

Bottle. Pours pale amber with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Nutty malts, slight floral hop in the nose. Some bitter hop, citrus, nutty, spicy hop, peppery taste. Louisiana beer for Louisiana? Yeah, definitely.

Had another of this breweries’ beers a couple of hours ago at a local bar and it was decent. So, I had high hopes for this one. Let down. However, I did get it at a quick mart, so can’t expect too much. Poured with decent white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber. Flavor is light struck and a bit skunky. Hops taste a bit stale too. And maybe oxidized - wet paper. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor. Wont’ finish the bottle.
