I am really surprised Andy hasn’t reviewed this beer yet. With Andy mixed with gators, you would expect a high powered brew. The only thing high powered about this is the alcohol (8%) and the calories (235 per 12 oz serving…jesus fucking christ). The flavors are light and generally delicious, but I don’t think it is worth that atrocious calorie count. Abita should definitely take the nutritional facts down from their site. Check out this site to see how ridiculous this total is. Guiness only has 125 calories.
Now that I thoroughly sound like and anorexic at fat camp, I guess I should legitimately review the beer. It has a very glassy orange color with a soft head. It smells very faintly of wheat. The taste is fairly sweet with a general “beer” taste. I think the only reason this sells is because of the name and the bottle.
