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.

Smells like strawberry, but a little too much--obviously made with a strawberry extract.
It is very clear, and a straw color. It has a dense creamy head with some lacing.
The flavor is nice--a decent lawnmower beer for sure. It is smooth with a nice strawberry aftertaste.
I could drink this for a while, however the strawberry is a little bit much for me, and I may get sick of it after several of these.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

I almost never drink a beer with fruit in it but was assured that Abita had done it really well so I gave it a shot. The first pour was a happy surprise as the beer was a nice golden hue instead of a fake red dye or something. I gave a sniff and was able to pick up on the abundance of strawberries, but also the wheat and barley which immediately screamed spring to me. The taste was smooth with a nice amount of strawberries through out. The mouthfeel was a bit thin but overall I really liked this beer. If you are a staunch opponent to fruity beers than this probably isn't the beer that will change your world view, but it is very nice.
