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.

Summer Lager time.
Strawberry Lager keeps showing up in my WFM craft packs. I cannot give them away fast enough, so I cracked one open with my salmon over pasta and fresh baked tomatoes/ basil / noodle lunch.
That said in summer I often squeeze a lemon, orange, or some peel into a beer, just like I would an espresso. (but I'd never want a "FLAVORED" coffee).

Fruit beers fall into 3 categories for me:
1) Authentic, additive to malt, yeast and hops (rare): eg Selected Pumpkin Ales and Carton Panzanella http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/26817/128664/
2) Authentic, but detracts from core beer (Abita falls in this category for me)
3) Fake, cloying, heading toward bathroom scented - Anything Apricot, eg St Johns Apricot Ale, any Lemon Shanty, unless I mix it myself.

A: Nice hazed body, half finger head, but only a bit of dotty lace and no retention.
S: Perhaps the best moment, because the strawberry is in reserve, but aroma is lacking across the board.
T: Authentic, but Strawberry overwhelms the lager.
MF: Strawberry all the way to the finish, not sweet, not cloying, but not anything, missing the refresh of lager, and the bitter long tingle of ale.

Also ran, I have to keep giving away. Not a lunch or a dessert beer either.
