Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 5
SOS (Save Our Shores) – Abita Brewing (Abita Springs, LA) – Weizen Pilsner – ABV 7% 4 out of 5
I was at my local BevMo looking for a few beers to get some badges on untappd. I was looking for one Pilsner to get the Crisp as day badge. I found this pilsner from Abita brewing. I picked it up because I like Abita very much. Then I looked at the label and saw this message which made me say yes I support that I must buy this beer it’s the perfect one for this Badge.

The Color is light yellow but not see through (from being unfiltered) with fizzy bubbly carbonation and nice thick white head. The scent is fruity, light and crisp scent while being hoppy. Taste is light crisp and I’m gettng a light fruity banana flavor. I like this pilsner, it better then your average pilsner. Also at 7% ABV it is stronger then your average Pilsner.
I drank this beer while watching the USA vs. Portugal World Cup match to root on the USA!
