Abita Brewing Co. 30th Anniversity Ale

Wow thirty years is a long time to be in business, but the Abita Brewing Co. has been in the brewing business for that long. To celebrate their thirtieth anniversary they brewed 30th Anniversary Ale, 7.0% AVB. This is a Belgian-Style India Pale Ale to celebrate the Belgian settlers of New Orleans, and is brewed with pale, pilsner and wheat malts and it is hopped and dry-hopped with German Hallertau Blanc Hops. 30th Anniversary Ale pour a deep hazy orange color with a bone white three finger head that slowly fades into decent lacing throughout the glass. Aroma is fruity with nice green grapes and bitter hop notes with bit of a pilsner like scent. Taste is fruity with green grapes up front with a bright flavor in the middle with mild hop bitterness with touches of a slight earthy note on the end or back of the tongue. 30th Anniversary Ale finishes nice and easy, especially for 7.0% ABV, with a bit of a very faint bitter earthy note. 30th Anniversary Ale has a nice fruited after taste that linger for a bit then turns to a slight yet faint bitterness that all ends easily. This is an easy drinking beer, and a bit dangerous for a 7.0% beer. I give Abita Brewing Co. 30th Anniversary Ale an A+. I would love to have this again and I highly recommend that you try it. It’s well balanced, easy to drink, plenty of nice flavors, and not overly bitter. Abita Brewing Co. always brews some great beers and this is on exception. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
