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.

Had on-tap at Sunswick 35/35 in Astoria, NY on 5/27/11.
Review taken from notes.

A - This beer pours a pale golden straw color. It has a small white head on it. The head has decent retention, and it leaves behind some specs of lacing on the glass.

S - It smells of mostly of pilsner malts. There is also a decent hop presence and some spices as well.

T - It tastes of pilsner malts up front. There are some spices and lemony citrus flavors present. It is a tad grainy, and there is a sort of unpleasant bitterness in the finish.

M - This has a light to medium body and good carbonation. It goes down pretty easy and is decently refreshing. The finish has a harsh bitterness that I can't get over though. There is also some dryness to it.

O - This has decent drinkability. It goes down fairly easy, and it refreshing. Overall, I thought it was a decent pilsner. It was a little bit underwhelming, and I didn't like the bitter finish. It was worth a try though.
