I'm a big fan of lowgrav helles brews - so I thought I'd give this high-grav version a whirl.
tastes just like I'd hoped. It's like a fine helles with a slightly winey kick.
Strong fruit notes here... orange, peach, and lemon... at cold temps this is massively drinkable for the abv... DANGEROUS.... but it's highgrav roots show when it warms a bit. I suggest drinking it VERY COLD because it's a great tasting beer at low temps... some would say the higher temps add character... for me it's just gets too boozy... a polar opposite of when it's freezing cold - when it's a superb drinkability high grav..
if you like helles brews you'll like andygator...
looks like a good helles... and nearly tastes like a normal helles when it's cold...
nice floral rose finish after a very tart beginning... this beer could definitely get another sitting...

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.
