Abita Brewing Company, Abita Springs, LA
Over thirty years ago, we began brewing for the way we love to live. The Boot is a crisp, refreshing brew proudly made and sold only in Louisiana. Brewed with white wheat, oats, and barley, hopped with Hallertau Blanc and fermented with German Kolsch yeast. Brewed in the Boot for the Boot.
Hazy gold in color and it smells like old buttered popcorn from a forgotten Xmas tin. Tastes like grain that has been sitting in the mash tun with a touch of bitterness at the end. Otherwise, not very impressive. And this is the beer that is supposed to represent Louisiana? We guess it does approximate what it is like to lick a boot…
Would we have it again? Nope
