The site was down so long, I’ll have to do this from a rough memory... I didn’t know what to expect from this beer. Had on draft at Beerfest on Bourbon St. New Orleans. Decent head, not too heavy. Has a bit of an abbey aroma, spiced and fruity. Drinks a bit like a barleywine, so I can’t put this in a category. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I haven’t had too much great stuff from abita, but this trip changed my perception.

bottled - clear golden color. Not much aroma or flavor at the start. Gets slightly sweet as it warms a bit. Just ok.

(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20170429) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A sweet brew but nothing to do with any bock.

Youre got to give to Abita for embracing their Florida roots. About every other Bock-type beer in the world has a goat on it. Abita is going to put an alligator on it, goddamnit! Andygator generally looks and smells like your average Doppelbock, although its not as dark as most. Pale orange color. Mildly hoppy aroma and sweet grains. I never really took to the flavor. Theres some mildly fruity notes and a strange vanilla/honey sweetness that seems somewhat out-of-place. I didnt take to this, but its worth trying if you like Abita.

Not too exciting, a little plain, but not bad at all. Excellent for the price though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Opaque amber. Unfiltered. Notes of malt, yeast, wheat, licorice and clove. Sticky alcohol with heavy clove and German yeast. Dry, quick finish. Not bad.

Idiosynkrasie (7318) - 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.
