Brewed By: Abita Brewing Company

I’m not usually one to go for a lower alcohol percentage beer. I know…shocker. But, to be honest I was first enticed by the beer’s label. It’s got a nice photo/drawing of someone who looks like they could shred the guitar left-handed.

This beer is known for its raspberry¬†taste and lightness. It’s a lager with a fruity aroma and taste that’s refreshing on a nice summer day. Next time I head to the beach, I know what I’m grabbing.

Abita says it’s “a lager brewed with real raspberries added after filtration.” You definitely get the taste of fruit and they even suggest pairing it with a dessert or having the beer as a dessert (don’t mind if I do).
