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.

Picked up a 12pak of Abita Wheat Lagers this Autumn for only ten bucks!
A: A pretty light lager with very little carbonation.
S: The most underwhelming characteristic of the beer. A slight hint of wheat.
T: Nice and strong malty base with a pleasant, bitter hop aftertaste, but not too hoppy.
M: Strong yeastiness lingers, and the bite on this lager makes for a crisp surprise.
O: A somewhat complex mix of malts makes for an intriguing and enjoyable taste. This beer is fine cold or not-so-cold, and at 4.2%abv it is extremely drinkable. Worthy of a try if you are a fan of wheat beers, but doesn't compare to the prime choices in that class. My best comparison is a "poor man's Leisure Time Lager."
