Bottle, thanks Deepsouth!! Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is of malts,hops and something funky. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma. Malty and hops are present...no complexity but as with most Abita beers I find it prett smooth. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Gold pour with 2-finger white head. Aroma was of heavy noble hops, citrus, some honey, malt, and fruit. Not a bad aroma. The flavor was a letdown after sniffing this one. I got some hopcit and slight fruit plus some phenols. Watery palate. Buying this one made me feel good, but drinking it did not. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2015

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Clear orange pour with a minimal white head. Nose is bready caramel malt. Palate is a bit light, carbonation is a bit low. Taste is bready malts with a hint of citrus. Just okay.

Clear golden amber, moderate white head. Soft floral and fruity hop aroma, perhaps lychee. Perfectly balanced clean malts and mild aromatic hops-- nice for its simple drinkability. I actually thought this was an american pale ale rather than a golden/blond. alexsdad06 (10389) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, floral and grassy hops, a splash of citrus. There wasn’t much going on with this. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
2012-03-16. Crisp orange body with a small beige head. Mild aroma, light leafy earthy hops. 6+ Flavour is similar, light leafy earthy hops and mild resin, modest bitterness throughout. 6+ Average bodied palate. Decent but milder than my preference.

12 oz. bottle tried at a few places around New Orleans- not hard to find at all when it’s in season. Pours a clear pale yellow gold with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, fresh hops, citrus, and grass. Flavor follows suit, with a fresh, crisp character. Light bodied, with a good carbonation snap. Light, easy drinking, sessionable, and just fine on a hot New Orleans afternoon in May. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2009
pours golden, white head.
Aroma of floral hops, pale malts, light yeasty presence, grainy and caramel.
Taste of light malts, light notes of caramel, floral hops with some citrus notes, light biter finish.
Still waiting to see anything groundbreaking coming from this brewery.
