22 ounce bottle from Bevmo in Redlands, CA; February 2010. Enjoyed the day after the Saints won their first ever Super Bowl (after drinking other Abita beers during the game).
Pours a golden copper, slightly hazy (but pretty clear) with a nice white head that doesn't last a whole long time.
Aroma of rich wheaty bread, almost rye tones. Flavor is bready, sweet caramel, honey and almost molassas. A little too sweet. Slight nuttiness. Too drinkable for an 8% beer.
I am not terribly knowledgeable of the style, but I would have to say this is one of the better Abita beers. Good stuff.

Trying the abita abductors at the Pie Factory in Florance, AL. The beer poured a clear golden with white head that left a lace. The scent was faint with hints of grass and biscuit. The taste was very strong leaning toward grassy peat bread. The m outhfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer didn't hit the mark for me.

Have wanted to try this, spotted some locally and jumped at the chance. Best by 8/2014 clear on the bottle's neck.
A -- Clear, deep gold with a large, dense, long-lasting, egg shell colored head that leaves nice lacing -- a very pretty beer and solid to style.
S -- Sweet malts and spicy alcohol.
T -- Rich, sweet maltiness with some peppery alcohol bite, but not overwhelming. Light toasty breadiness and mild fruitiness from rich malts. Vaguest hop bitterness in the finish.
M -- Mouthfeel is soft to dry with a medium-full body.
O -- A surprisingly nice take on the style. Goes to show that breweries can surprise you out of the blue. Anyone who likes German-style beers should try this one.
