3.58/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- golden yellow in color with good amount of murkiness from the wheat, nice bubbles stream nicely up the glass, white head fades thin lacing,
Smell- all i can really get off this smell is tons of strawberry and berry, fruit dominated nose
Taste- get a little bit of wheat up front then all i get what so ever is lots of fake berrys and strawberry flavors, to me this flavor is identical to that of boo berry cereal, its not offensive but its just very fake and kinda over done, its not sweet but just bit much for me to love,
Mouthfeel- very well carbonated light crisp, nice feel creamy smooth
Overall/drinkability- this beer certainly is not hard to drink and the strawberry flavors to kind of grow on you though im not sure its something I would really be searching for again, to be fair fruit wheat beers are low on my beer todem pole but this one is inoffensive and decent, if you are into the style this may be worth look for you, if point its weakness the strawberry at times seems bit forced and strong but its strong point is due to light abv and crisp carbonation its decently refreshing and easy drink

I almost never drink a beer with fruit in it but was assured that Abita had done it really well so I gave it a shot. The first pour was a happy surprise as the beer was a nice golden hue instead of a fake red dye or something. I gave a sniff and was able to pick up on the abundance of strawberries, but also the wheat and barley which immediately screamed spring to me. The taste was smooth with a nice amount of strawberries through out. The mouthfeel was a bit thin but overall I really liked this beer. If you are a staunch opponent to fruity beers than this probably isn't the beer that will change your world view, but it is very nice.
