Abita Wheat

By on February 3, 2007 @ 7 PM (1 Comment)

Pours medium gold but non-cloudy. Distinctive wheat aroma. Head thin. Miss the wheat taste and surprisingly heavy hops. Way too much hops for a hefe or weissbier. The appearance was clear, not cloudy, should have been warned. If this is a hefe why was it clear? Where was the hint of sweetness and the lemony and pepperiness of a GOOD hefe? The label said to pour it over ice with lemon. If I wanted to make lemonade I would. No hint of sweetness or if there is it is overpowered by the hops. Other than the aroma it is hard to tell it apart from a cheap American beer, which I am well acquainted with. One of the most disappointing Abita beers I’ve had. Not bad enough to pour out, but a great disappointment from a company that makes some really good beers. Hope to review them at a later date.

Abita Wheat Rating: 2 out of 10 (?)

    I agree that Abita makes better beers, but i do enjoy the taste of Abita wheat. No it does not taste like a “normal” wheat beer but non of Abita’s beers taste like any other beer i have ever had. I would at least give it a 4 out of 10 myself.
