Clear yellow colored beer with a good white colored head, looks like a regular lager.
Sweet and nutty this basically smells like Pecan Pralines. There is a slight lemon aroma to this one; it mixes with the herbs to give this a slight lemon grass scent.
Starts out sweet and fruity in the mouth, aftertaste is banana? Malty and bready beer with a restrained sweetness. Good bitterness in the back of the throat.
Mouthfeel is good.
Not a bad beer but one that leaves me thinking there was something here that I just didn't get. It is OK but somehow I expected more from this beer. It is OK.

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.
