Notes/Commercial Description:
Strawberry Harvest Lager is a wheat beer made with real Louisiana strawberries, picked late in the season when they’re at their sweetest. This brew has earned quite a reputation in a short time, causing the brewery to up their production year after year. When this brew is found, emails and phone calls fly to friends informing them of the store’s location. Strawberry Harvest is a crisp, light lager with just a hint of strawberry sweetness.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a fairly clear medium straw color with a decent sized bubbly white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Aromas of strawberry but a bit on the subtle side. Light spice, lemon, and just a touch of yeasty funk. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Yeasty wheaty with a hint of lemon and funk with a solid hit of strawberry to add a bit of complexity. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice fruity light easy drinking summer ale, I quite enjoyed it.

It's not a great beer, but I like it anyway. The sweetness is a nice complement to spicy crawfish that is also in season when this beer comes out. I find a noticeable improvement on-tap vs. the bottle.

Not for everyone, but if you're looking for something different in the springtime, this can be a nice treat, every once and a while.

The Abita Strawberry is a really good tasting beer. It is not too strong, or too light. You can taste the strawberry flavor that it has. The smell is really good as well. The taste is not too strong or to light. If you have not had this beer you should try it, if you like strawberry flavored drinks.
