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.

Pours a slightly hazy blond yellow. Fizzy head that settles at about a half inch of flim at the top of the liquid. There is a brief faint hint of beer aroma, but for the most part sweet strawberry is all I smell. The taste is just way to sweet and fruity for me. The few bitter beer flavors that come out don't complement the strawberry flavor. I know slamming a strawberry beer for being sweet and fruity is like reviewing an IPA and saying you don't like the bitterness. It's strawberry beer, this is how it's supposed to taste and smell. They made it right, I just don't like it. That being said, I could not drink it.

The pour is pretty, i will give it that, nice head, soem lacing, but thats all that good about this beer. It smells and tastes like you squeezed a pound of strawberries into a glass of simple syrup, cloyingly sweet, no depth, no nuances, horrible beer, avoid it like the plague.
