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.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

This is a simple, easy-drinking, and pretty tasty beer. Clean, crisp, and refreshing flavor and mouthfeel. It's neither too sweet nor too watery. I probably wouldn't drink it every day, but it hits the spot when it's 85 degrees and muggy outside.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. When I first smelled this I almost forgot I had a strawberry beer. There is only a faint hint of strawberry but a strong bread yeast smell to it. The taste is where things get better. More of a bold strawberry but again not a huge presence. Suffice it to say I do not find it very sweet. It is a pleasant beer to kick back and drink with non beer friends. I enjoy having one of these for an easy drink on a hot day. I will purchase another 6 pack for such occasions.

No bottle date

Look -Pours a hazy golden yellow with a fluffy and billowy white head with small bubbles. Excellent distribution, good retention. Decent lacing. 4.5 paws.

Smell - Lots of strawberry, mixed with the malt it smells a bit like strawberry yogurt. A touch of lemon and a bit of wheat and just a smidgen on cinnamon and honey. No hops, strawberry yogurt or ice cream is really the dominant aroma. 4.25 paws.

Taste - Lots of strawberry up front, crisp pilsner malt, but an unpleasant finish of an American wheat beer, somewhat astringent and metallic. The strawberry flavor is very nice though, and tastes of strawberries and cream. A touch of lemon and honey and the slightest bit of hops bitterness that lingers The faint cinnamon flavor pops up again for me, almost like a churro (keyword: faint). 3.75 paws.

Feel - Medium bodied, and slightly creamy that compliments the strawberry flavor well. Not much tingle. 4.25 paws.

Overall - A very nice warm weather beer, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The finish was a bit off-putting at first, but the more you drink, the more the strawberry flavors envelops everything. 4.25 paws.

Pours a yellow orange haze, smells of strawberry and of malts.And surprise it has a strong strawberry taste with a malty finish. A good beer for a hot summer day, i get a six pack every year drink it cold and fresh out of a ten i give it a strong 7.5.
