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.

Popped off the screw-cap and poured -- too cold -- into a tall pilsner glass. It's a pale straw yellow, hazy, with a cute white cap that fades to a few centimeters pretty quickly. It sticks around, but leaves no lacing.

I remember this brew fairly fondly, but it's been a while... the initial taste is light malts and a bit of corn, but suddenly a silly, candy-like strawberry wave floods the senses and I'm back in my parent's house on a Saturday morning, eating a huge bowl of Captain Crunch with Crunchberries and watching Ducktales while my mother eyes the bowl of delicious sugary goodness with suspicion. In fact... yeah, this is pretty much the same flavor. Maybe a bit less sweet, and finishes with a sour twist that keeps it out of the realm of complete absurdity.

It also smells just like the aforementioned cereal. Bizarre, yet comforting.

Mouthfeel is light and slightly crisp, with a decent middling carbonation and a sour, fruity and corny finish. A little disappointing.

Strawberry Harvest isn't the kind of beer I'd drink on a regular basis, but I have to admit being a bit charmed by it... it's certainly more interesting than your normal macro lager. If you like pseudo-strawberry flavor then this may be your kind of thing. Worth a 6 pack a year purchase in my book.
