This beer gets a 'B' average; obviously this is testament to the fact that there are completely insane maniacs walking our city streets, including tickers.
A - It looks like Blue Moon or Shock Top, only more piss-yellow.
S - This is some repugnant shit, as my man Jules from Inglewood might say. I would not be surprised to learn that this brew somehow incorporated toxic petrol sludge, fatally stricken seabirds or maybe some other flotsam and jetsam. There is a rancid sweetness, some wet-dog and a mushy pea aroma; to describe any more would be just disgusting.
T - Again, disgusting. The themes of the nose are repeated. Wet-dog, roadkill, and microwaved fish meet triple-hops brewing, the vortex bottle, and the Rockies turning blue.
M - I did feel violated, but I won't press charges, officer.
D - Great gimmick for Abita; I feel like I've really given back to the gulf community by buying this blasphemy of a beer. Maybe if Louisiana can suffer more calamity, Abita could find impetus for more special releases.

Sampled at the brewery in the tasting room before a brewery tour today.
A nice pale gold/dark straw yellow in colour. White head is 1/2 inch on the pour and sticks around for awhile, leaving lines of lacing down the sides.
Aroma is pretty standard german pilsner. Biscuity with a grassy and noble hop background.
Flavour is the same as aroma. Biscuity/bready up front before the grassy/noble hops take over in the finish.
Pretty plain and just ok pilsner. Didn't do anything to grab me. Overall I think Abita's ales are better than their lagers, but that's just my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap
