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.

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.

Pint at Khyber Pass in Philly. From notes.

A - Poured mildly hazy and golden. Mild carbonation coming up to a two finger white head. Spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Wheat, grass, a mild hop. Plain, but clean and good..

T - Nice spicy hop with grass and wheat. Orange juice, bubblegum as well. Nice stuff.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, mild bitterness.

O/D - This was a good pils. It was clear that they used wheat in it and it did well with the hop flavour. Good balance and drinkable.
