The next beer on the list is Abita Abbey Ale. I normally drink Purple Haze made by Abita. This is also a wheat ale like the apricot ale. However, purple haze has raspberry infuzed in it. A description of the Abbey Ale can be found at the Abita Website. This beer is a nice dark brown and has a thick head. I can definitely smell cloves and hints of what seems like banana bread to me. Defintely smells of fruit. A very different taste from the apricot beer though, thicker and richer. This is fairly good. I would rate it a B in my book.
