Notes/Commercial Description:
Wheat (May – September) German brewers discovered centuries ago that the addition of wheat produces a distinctively light, refreshing beer. Unlike traditional German wheat beers produced by other breweries, Abita Wheat is a lager, not an ale, and contains a generous amount of wheat which produces a clean, simple flavor.

Abita Wheat pours a straw color with a white head with average retention.

Its aroma is slight wheat with a hint of citrus.

The taste starts with soft wheat taste which turns into a citrus like tang. On the mid palate a slight hop bitterness appears, which is followed by quick but clean finish.

Its mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium.

Overall I think Abita is a pretty average version of the wheat style. I really like Abita and there brews, but this beer would not be on the top of my list of Abitas to try.
