COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over thirty years ago, we planted our flag in the Boot to brew for the way we love to live. The Boot is a crisp, refreshing brew made proudly and sold only within our home state. Brewed with white wheat, oats, and barley, hopped with Hallertau Blanc and fermented with German Kolsch yeast as a thanks to the folks who have been with us from the start.

Dacrza (1086) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2017
DATE: May 28, 2017... OCCASION: Quiz Bowling in New Orleans, and the bar is offering a local release of The Boot...Cannot resist, especially on this hot day’s night... GLASSWARE: nondescript pint... bubblegum, lemon grass, and medicinal band-aid (not like a scotch, but still somewhat weird)...pours a golden clear body with little effervescence; off-white head that fizzles quickly, ringing to a small froth... thin, crushable with a tickle that tricks the throat... watery to a fault, but not a problem I would ascribe a Kölsch usually... not much happening here--fighting hard to find something other than soft grass, hay, and cereal oats--but it is nice to be in New Orleans...not a beer that requires much thought, and that is the best compliment I can give...

From notes, rated at Great American Beer Festival. Will add more notes if I get to rate this again. Okay for a Kolsch.

wlajwl (7281) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2018
Aroma is complex spices/hops. The flavor is Abita ale yeast, fruit, pale malts and a smooth finish.

crajun (1279) - , Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Bottle. Back to back LA kolsch. This a hair better than last but no reason to buy or drink. Grainy. A little more body than the ragin Cajun Not sure this is a good style for me

padraicshaun (9) - - NOV 4, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 An Abita beer for the masses. It’s unoffensive yet lacks real character. It’s another all day type. It’s worth trying.

ehaak26 (773) - - AUG 7, 2017
Bottle from Rouse’s market. Aroma of hay and grass. Probably the best Abita I’ve had, still not great.

2.6
ccex (1400) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2017
12 oz. bottle pours a slightly hazy light golden color with moderate white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is almost non-existent, but has some hay and wildflowers. Taste is on the bitter side. Body is light with soft carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. It’s easy to drink, and tries not to get your attention.
