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.

Taste develops from first opening til end of bottle, super fruity like driving in country spring day, slow and quiet enough to hear bees buzz, a fine one to turn French Canadians on to while visiting the region. Picked up at Whole Foods, ugh, have kombucha in three different places. The kind of beer that would be sold in biergarten at Willie Wonka’s factory. Mid life aroma, like a sophisticated perfume developed over many seasons in the heat. Sultry voice lays a heavy breath on back of neck, a whole other wave of aromatics as her hair dangles around your face, hitting olfactory delights seated in childhood candy shops, cloudy with a silt laden atmosphere waiting to spring into moss. Goes down easy as a nap in a hammock, next to a brook cooling the air with droning tribal chill upstream evaporating into natural air conditioning. Picking this up worth the work day trip to Whole Foods no matter how convoluted their shop is. Part 2, Instacart took me to Whole Foods again, took a while to find it, as with everything else in that store, seems like it’s the same batch as earlier, a bit older tasting. The cap has a big role in the aroma and flavor drunk out of bottle. Whoever is making this seems like the kinda country Cajun chef who can make armadillo taste great and gator tail tender enough to eat with a minimum of dental care. Foam quiet as night on bayou where even the crickets and frogs know better than to make their presence known to the swamp folk who will use the former as a spicy batter addition when frying up the latter. Smells like a good old beer that someone in overalls would recognize as such, yet please the inner epicure responsible for the large belly despite lack of fast food and even grocery stores. Copper color precious like that of some treasured trinket kept under the bed in a special box by some kid who does not have tv to substitute for imagination. Grateful the fine people of Bayou Teche share this creole of sorts between modern west coast pale ale but with Belgian malts and German lager style Liberty hops.Part 2, Instacart took me to Whole Foods again, took a while to find it, as with everything else in that store, seems like it’s the same batch as earlier, a bit older tasting.

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. RJT

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 1, 2010
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.

5.74%ABV. American Pale ale. Tapped out Amber. 16ºSRM. Nose had some nice pine and citrus peel. Mouthfeel is soapy. There are nice toasted malty flavors. The hops are pine, grass, pine sap, hint of spicy, maybe mint. so nice hyssop profile. Some hemp funkiness in the end which suggests some nice resinous flavors. Finish is medium and pleasantly funky hoppy, though not obviously so. An almost flowery, perfumed finish. Goes on Favorites List!

Aroma is grapes, pears/papaya and mild sweetness. The flavor is pear/papaya, very mild hop resin, malts, fruit and a dryish/bitter finish.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Veiled golden color with weak activity. Thick white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some sticky legs. Aromas of caramel, sweet grains, and a floral bouquet. Flavors of strong roasted grains, caramel, lemon, orange, floral and herbal spices. Nice sweet bready feel with a pleasant sharpness. Slick medium to heavy body with perfect carbonation. Medium strength finish ending with sugary roasted malt, slightly spicy, lemony and a lingering biscuity feel. Overall a very good craft offering complex tasty flavors, good freshness, well intensified and balanced. I really enjoyed the malt quality and the nice bread taste it produce.

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.
