1 pt. 6 oz. bottle:
Pours bright golden yellow with a fluffy/foamy white head that leaves some lacing.
The smell is of sweet grain, somewhat nutty with lemongrass.
The taste is of sweet grainy, slightly nutty with a hint of yellow apples, honey, and spices.
It has a thickish, syrupy medium body. Medium to high carbonation saves this brew from sickly sweetness.
I appreciate experimentation with imperial styles, but this one just doesn't work that well for me. I don't think the beer is poorly conceived. But I don't think that it really works as a style. Nice try but just not my cup of tea.

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.
