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.

This one pours a cloudy pale golden color with just a hint of orange. With a thin short lived head that settles moderately quick with very minimal lacing.

The nose is very strawberry and malt with the hops being almost non-existent. The nose is very fruity and pleasant. Reminds me of spring time.

The taste is a tad dry with definite fructose, strawberries and apples with a dry malt bed a mild hopping.

The moutfeel is adequate

Overall this is a decent beer and drinkable. Not exceptional, but I think would be great on a hot day.

Golden color with a thick head with short retention.
Predominant aroma of strawberries, biscuit malt and lager yeast.
Similarly, refreshing flavor with notes of strawberries, lager yeast and faint floral hops.
Light body with mild carbonation of tiny bubbles.
Nice fruit beer, strawberry notes are not heavy and the beer is not overly sweet. Hops could be bolder, and I guess citrus hops would perfectly match this.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, hazy, golden/yellow color with a quarter of a finger of white head that immediately dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Interesting aroma. Very grassy and wheaty and barnyard. There are some fruity aromas, but what I mainly get are grassy, wheaty, barnyard aromas. Not sure if I classify it as pleasant.

Taste: Interesting flavors too. Again, grassy up front, followed immediately by lots of strawberry and cream. Actually, rather than a lager, the taste of this beer reminds me more of a cream ale flavored with strawberries.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some good carbonation. With an ABV of 4.2%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Interesting beer. Fruity and creamy flavored (but not really creamy in mouthfeel). Just an interesting beer.
