I had this beer for the first time at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans just recently. This beer is deliciously hoppy and aromatic. I even drank it on an empty stomach and it wasn’t overly heavy in body either. I look forward to whatever they plan to put out next.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bayou Teche LA-31 Biere Pale has a medium, off-white head and a very clear, sparkling amber color. Carbonation is moderate. Aroma is of hops, yeast, and bread, with a citrus aspect. Taste is very good and full, with a strong orange or marmalade component. The bitter hops level is enjoyable. Mouth-feel is medium, and this beer finishes wet. Overall, this is a delicious beer, and I highly recommend it.

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.

a real treat finding this new (to me) pale ale that rivals many of the IPA that I enjoy. Light enough body not to slow you down and flavor that will keep you coming back.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. bottle from six pack purchased at Rouses in Gretna, LA. Pours a clear light copper with a thin white head leaving good lacing. Mild hop/floral aroma as well as some earthiness and nuttiness. Medium body with the hops up front gives way to the Belgian malt flavor with a lingering sweet yet hoppy finish. Definitely unlike other APA’s, but I am for one very happy to live in south LA and able to buy this beer. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Barley Oak (and other places) and in bottles at many local supermarkets in southeastern LA. Copper colored pour with a medium sized head that lasts. Nice lacing. Sweet, woody, nutty, aroma. Smooth mild taste of a nice blend of malts with a nicely understated spice of hops. Tingly on the palate and full bodied. Sort of a tingling tart finish.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
