2.83/5 rDev -19.6%
Picked this up from a Sunoco that has a nice craft selection. (Who knew?) Golden amber appearance with a small white head. Head died down relatively quickly. Not very cloudy, honestly lighter than I had expected. Smell is nice, very fruity and aromatic. Sweet. Taste is nothing to get too excited about. Spicy, with herbal and hopped up tones, and a slight maltiness. A little sweetness there as well. Mouthfeel is thin, not much carbonation.
Overall, not too bad, but nothing special. It IS easy to drink, which seems to be the point (now that I read the back of the bottle.) If that's your joint, then maybe this is for you, but I like higher ABV's to demand a little respect. I probably won't be seeking this out again, sadly. I would add that most of the Abita that I've had as been great.

On tap at buck Finns- for a buck at happy hour u can't go wrong!
A-clear light amber golden with a hint of whitehead without staying power and no lacing
S-pils malt with just a hint of spicy bittering hops
T-similar to the aroma
M- very light for a beer of this abv. Carbonation is on the high side. Mouthfeel is very light. Bittering finish but fairly crisp.
O-nothing exciting here. The alcohol is well hidden and goes down fairly easy for a stronger beer. I'll give it a 3.5 just for that

Looks like some Belgians I've had...slight hazy, pale gold. Not exactly cloudy, but enough stuff to make it almost opaque. The head is bright white and fluffy, but has no rentention.
Pilsner malts are the first thing that hits, but as it warms, the fruity esters start to come out. If I close my eyes, it's almost like there's some funky Belgian yeast. Lemon peel.
Pilsner malt and pepper dominate. There's subtle lemon notes, but the peppery flavor stomps it immediately.
Not an easy drinker, and that's probably the idea. It's hard to get past the bite of the pepper. A bit of alcohol in the finish.
It really tastes like a strong, peppery pilsner beer. Nothing strikes me as German, but ultimately, it's just too much spice to be a good beer. Has some good characteristics, but the mouthfeel just kills it.
