Abita Christmas Ale

21 Nov

IMG_3397Although I no longer celebrate Christmas my dad still knows I like to try seasonal ales so he grabbed me an Abita Christmas Ale when he was visiting my grandparents in Louisiana this weekend. Made in Abita Springs, LA this beer is all over there and still not that difficult to find even in grocery stores here.

I don’t know thee price or ABV but this dark ale isn’t bad. I’m not sure if it’s the power of suggestion from the Christmas tree on the label but it has a hint of pine tree taste to it. It’s crisp and slightly hoppy. A little hoppier than what I would normally want but not as much as an IPA so it’s a good balance. Interestingly enough the label says they change the recipe each year so I guess that means you could love it one year and hate it the next. Interesting concept.
