COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.

The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.

The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS – A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75¢ for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle int a pint glass.

The color is a golden/amber with quite a few bubbles. There is about two fingers of foamy white head and some thick lacing.

The smell is noble hops at first in the nose with a pale malt flavor coming out. Has a nice crisp German hop flavor that is also a bit wheaty as well.

The taste has some nice sweet malt flavor. The hops come in to hit you up with some earthy flavor and some clove flavor before going way to more malt flavor.

The feel of this beer has a nice light body and really has a well managed feel that goes down well bur does not have too much or a disagreeable feel

Gold with good, creamy, white head / Nose of corn, bread, cream, and resin / Medium body, fat and creamy, low carbonation, with good balance and long, lightly bitter, finish / Flavors of straw, grain, violets, and honey / A surprisingly outstanding effort from Abita.

I’m not a real fan of Abita, but this is the exception to the rule. Very nicely balanced with a full malt flavor and complex hop aroma and bite. Very easy to drink despite the 7% abv

Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with an aroma of grassy peach hops soaked in wildflower juice. Lots of dirt and earth in that smell. Flavor is a grapefruit soaked in water and baked in a light baking soda biscuit left in an earthy peach field. Tingly mouthfeel. I like this beer; it’s, well, it’s good.
