Abita Select Weizenbock

Lovely, another Abita Select and to be honest after some initial scepticism on my part I’ve been increasingly pleased with some of their efforts. It seems as though most Taco Mac’s in the Atlanta area have installed a permanent Abita Select tap; even the Douglasville one where this was consumed.
Pour is the requisite, caramel colored, hazed affair with some pretty good head, lace and retention.
Nose is important for this style and the beer does not disappoint. Good pineapple, bubble-gum, candy and banana notes.
The tastes are slightly weaker than the nose and don’t quite reach the zenith that the initial aroma would suggest. The body, although by no means weak, is also a touch light for the style but still decent with a little syrup note. Drinks very easily and alcohol seems solid if not overpowering.
Pretty good example of the style where the only question appears over the mouthfeel. Otherwise solid and a pleasing beer.
