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.

A - Hazy yellow pour with a fizzy white foam. Mild lacing.

S - Nice smell of strawberry preserves. The sweet sugary fruit is very dominant.

T - Pleasant springtime beer. Some light grains are noted, but the sweet taste of fresh strawberries is potent and consistent throughout drinking.

M - The sweetness could be a bit tiresome, but this is an easy drinking beer. Actually paired great with peppery Cajun food.

O - Certainly worth a try, and better than many of the spring seasonals out there.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a very thin layer of head on top with no retention. Very small strips of lacing down the glass.

Smell is of strawberry jam and fresh strawberries on the nose with a slight grain scent.

Tastes like water run over some crushed strawberries and into some beer. Not much there but it is very refreshing and clean tasting.

Mouthfeel is very light and carbonated. Very refreshing beer but again nothing special.

Overall I could drink this beer again. If someone else had some I would drink it but I don't know if its something I would seek out. It's a decent beer but that's about it. Worth the try though.

Call me a girly girl, but this is seriously one of my all-time favorite beers. I love the light airy quality of all of Abita's beers (as a Louisiana native, I can testify that it has a LOT to do with the amazing water quality in Abita Springs - where their other major industry is bottled water). The clean crisp refreshing flavor of an Abita Strawberry harvest is absolutely delightful. Not to mention the strawberries are fresh from one town over and leave a very strong strawberry aftertaste in one's mouth. I am thankful that this "seasonal beer" is usually lingering on the shelves for about half of the year.
