This year-round-beer favorite combines genuine strawberry puree with a classic Cream Ale to create a uniquely flavorful experience. Strawberry Ale is superb with salads and desserts, or alone as a refreshing treat.

Kind of different from a normal fruit beer. From my home town so thought i'd try it when a friend bought it. Not bad but I wouldn't buy it again, maybe something else from this brewery though. Seems like a Strawberry Ale would be hard to pull off well.

Not my favorite local brew, but still glad to see craft brewing becoming a thing in South Louisiana!

Covington Strawberry Ale
12 oz. brown glass bottle

Fairly average fruit beer, although I have to say it's hard to get strawberry flavor out of puree so if that's all they're using they've done an excellent job. It's got enough fruit to it to keep the ladies happy, but not so much that a gent can't enjoy one as well. Haziness, I think, can be ignored as they're using real fruit. The aroma is pleasant, and displays both the strawberry and the sweetish malt, which is also true of the flavor. Where I find it goes slightly off is that the malt is slightly sweet, but more importantly, almost a little candyish. If you drink it cold you won't notice it, but when it warms it reminds me of cotton candy. On the other hand I don't think you want to increase the bitterness. Perhaps a slight bit of tartness might, or a more thorough fermentation. Regardless, it's a fairly enjoyable and drinkable fruit beer.
