Notes/Commercial Description:
This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

Found this at Brix in Omaha. Great looking painted bomber. Pilsners aren't usually my thing but I figured that, considering the cause, I could give this one a go. Hats off to Abita, who came up with this idea. This is a 22 ounce bomber. I'm pouring it into a big ass pilsner glass. Pours with a two inch huge, billowing, frothy head. The head leaves behind some serious lacing. Gigantic bubbles and foam from this one. Likewise carbonation is huge, with fizz seemingly going on for days. Pours cloudy, which isn't surprising considering this is an unfiltered beer. Color is a bright gold, brilliant like the sun. Aroma is pretty hefty, especially for a pilsner, with cereal notes and lemongrass in the nose. Pretty solid amount of bitterness in this one - it's pleasant though. Lively mouthfeel with a high amount of pleasant carbonation and a pretty slick mouthfeel. Taste is spot on. Light malt starts, before giving way to grassy and fruity hop character. Bitterness teases the palate before giving way to a sweet honey finish. The biscuity malt sweetness really helps to hide the 7% ABV, which I can't seem to really find. Really crisp and refreshing take on the pilsner style. Kudos to Abita for supporting a good cause by putting together a great beer.
