Abita Andygator, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

ClarkVV (6083) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Draught at Sunset Grill, early 2008. Wasnt sure what this was at the time of drinking it, but thought it was some Belgian Strong Golden, though I suppose a heller doppel bock is reasonable. It says fermented to a dry finish, and while I wont call it overly dry, by any means, its not obnoxiously sweet and the alcohol isnt overbearing. Warming allowed for some DMS like flavors and the hops never really made an appearance, but for some floral, lightly dusty notes upon opening. Not offensive, though Im rating it more of a Belgian ale than a doppel bock, which it dosent really resemble in the least bit.

Idiosynkrasie (6861) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2017
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy to creamy half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, malty aroma, hints of honey, carrot, a touch of lemon. Taste is slightly sweet malty, unspecific fruity, notes of carrot, honey, dry hints of starch. Controlled sweetness, rather expressionless overall.

Im kinda surprised by the low scores here, but not really. This is a nice hellerbock. Good malty sweetness, full and balanced, nice toffee flavors, with a light hop spicing beneath. Mildly warming.

tomer (3254) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, cloudy deep orange color with yellowish hues, malty, nutty, vanila aroma, sweet malty and alcoholic. Not too exciting.

DSG (12532) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom Ls place. Thanks Stas. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, honey, caramel, a bit of alcohol. Sweet flavor, honey-ish, caramelly, alcoholic. Too sweet and boozy.

355ml bottle as a gift from Louisiana:
Quite a disappointing offering overall, the beer seemed quite ordinary & definitely wasnt what I was expecting, especially given it was the last of the American import beers I had to try from over the summer. There wasnt too much variety to the beer either, beyond the sweetness some pale malts & typical lager type flavours featured alongside an earthy middle & some toasted touches nearer the end; I cant say this is one Im likely to have again Im afraid.

Skinnyviking (9137) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2016
Sample at GABF 2016. Medium high white fluffy lasting head. Clear yellow golden body. Mild and weak malt straw slightly fruity aroma. Very sweet fruity honey flavor with a solid malt base. Alcohol can be spottet. Little hops bitterness, low carbonation, long sweet finish.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2016
- orange-gelbe Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Honig, Toffee, Brot, Malz, Banane, Kekse, Apfel und einer relativ starken Alkoholprsenz - zurckhaltende Carbonisierung - sofort im Antrunk vermischen sich die beschriebenen Aromen zu einem s- lichen Durcheinander - damit wird das Bier nicht unbedingt schlecht, aber leider fehlt dadurch vllig eine gewisse Vielschichtigkeit und Komplexitt - Mittelteil und Abgang verndern da nichts mehr daran Fazit: Trinkbarer Doppelbock, mehr aber nicht

Hefty Helles. Malty, sweet, and little bit chewy. Decent bitevthat helped cut the maltiness. Okay.

mikske79 (1539) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - OCT 13, 2016
De geur is lekker fris. De kleur donkerblond. Weinig schuim als je hem uitschenkt. De smaak redelijk bitter. Maar valt al bij al goed mee.

ozzy70 (918) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 10, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy golden, quickly fading white head. Aroma was bread, toasted malts. Taste was light sweet, fruity, malty.
