Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a murky golden orange very thin minimal head.
S - Raspberries, wheat, orange, lavender, some spices. Smells like a raspberry air freshener, awful.
T - Raspberry water with some wheat, fortunately you dont get that lavender in the taste, bland and unmemorable.
M - Thin, watery, nothing hangs on to your palate except a light raspberry finish.
O - I cant stand fruit beers in general, this is no exception, I like about everything else Abita does, but this smells terrible, and is just generic.
