Abita Andygator Helles Doppelbock

Abita Brewing Company, Abita Springs, LA

Andygator is a fiercesome beast.  Don’t let this toothy grin, slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma fool you: this cold-blooded creature is a Helles Doppelbock that can sneak up on you.  This unique, high-gravity brew is made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops.  Sip, don’t gulp, and taste the wild of Abita Andygator.

8% ABV

Clear golden/amber in color with a fruity nose, like yeasty strawberries.  Large Marge describes the palate like a sucker punch: starts smooth and malty, not at all unpleasant, but then BAM! it hits you with a funky sweet taste that lingers into the aftertaste.

Would we have it again?  No

    I really like the Andygator. I had it at the Abita Brewery and during French Quarter Fest, but it’s hard to find in Virginia.
