What Would Eli Drink?
Abita Abbey Ale

Abita Abbey Ale

WWED Grade: A

Appearance: Dark and cloudy. Hazelnut brown. Light won’t penetrate. Thick, full and creamy head that appears to last.

Smell:  Belgian yeast. Caramel and strong malt scents. Sweetness? Mmm…I’m getting hungry!

Taste: Slightly sweet. Mildly bitter at the end. The malts are very well balanced. If I were to be very esoteric – I might even say some dried fruits. Like…apricots.

Drinkability: Very drinkable. Medium carbonation.

ABV: 8%

Serving Type: 22oz bomber poured in goblet.


This bottle is beautiful. But if you’ve read my reviews before – you’ll know that that won’t sway me. Fortunately – this beer lived up to the hype. Man – it was great! Thanks Abita. The malts are balanced perfectly with some generous hops and yeast. Mmm…delicious!
