Bayou Beer for the Holidays

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

The Abita Brewing Company’s Christmas Ale is a spicy Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale-ish taste from the bayou. By far the best beer offered by Abita, especially if you’ve only tasted this and Purple Haze.

By the way, if you haven’t ever tasted Sierra’s Celebration go buy a case of it. If your local beer super store is out of it, then buy some next November.

Abita’s Christmas Ale is spicy but definitely not heavy. The color is medium, like a lager, but the taste is pale ale-ish (just add some spices). No hint of cajun either. This beer is worthy of a tasting if you can find it.
