I had the Abita Save our Shore while visiting NOLA. From a Bomber poured into a glass, the beer is a chill hazed straw yellow with a pretty big and clingy white head.

Nose of wheat and something sweet and slightly spicy .

Taste leads with wheat-bread notes and some subtle spicing. It is slightly bitter in a non-citrus-pine way. More like Belgian Pale ale late with almost candy sugar.

The mouth is slick with mid-level heft.

Decent beer for a very good cause.

22 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 10/30/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, bread, cracker, wheat, light banana, pepper, clove, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, pepper, light banana, clove, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, wheat, banana, cracker, bread, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pilsner style. All around well balanced malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.
