look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Served in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House.

Is this like a bird of prey that only hunts in the early Summer? Regardless, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, coriander, nutmeg, clove, light brown sugar, light honey, and a twinge of banana. The taste brings in more of the same, with the orange and coriander really leading the charge. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this has to be one of the best Abita beers I've yet had, a solid BPA that allows the Belgian yeast-borne spices to really shine without burning out.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Clear pale golden with a large, didn't head that has very good retention.
Very fruity aroma is fairly complex. Has hints of apple, banana, clove. Mildly yeasty.
T: moderately tart and a bit more bitter than sweet. Balance is ok until the overly bitter aftertaste with little else going on.
O: This Abita is clearly Belgian style and has a very good aroma and feel but otherwise it is only rather average.

Serving type: on-tap
