Massachusetts

4.1/5  rDev +30.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, cloudy

Smell: lemon rind and grain

Taste: lemon juice, grain, sweet wheat, and perhaps a touch of ginger

Mouthfeel: sweet, light body, high carbonation

Overall: Very lemony, but wow what a sessionable beer. Found myself having a few of these over the holiday weekend. Goes down way to easy and is an improvement on several of Abita's other seasonal beers. Very good for the style.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

I don't know why I even bought this, aside from filling up my mixed sixer. It pours a hazy amber-straw topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises weak and thoroughly-artificial lemon, excess sugar, and mild white bread. The taste smacks of white bread dipped in watered-down Crystal Light lemonade. Yupper-doo. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, this was just plain bad, underwhelming in every conceivable way. When are we gonna stop getting half-assed "flavored" seasonals?
