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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pale gold with decent foam and lacing.

Smell: Malt and strawberries.

Taste: Strawberries and malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp, with a lingering taste of strawberries.

The Verdict: Not bad. Better balanced than many fruit beers, and the berries don’t taste artificial. Abita was my first taste of craft beer, so they’ll always have a soft spot in my heart.

One of the best fruit beers I have had in some time. Very, very balanced.

Pours a light gold liquid with a slight hazy and a very generous white head.

Aroma is pleasant and malty with a tinge of strawberries.

The flavor - impeccably good. Not too sweet (like most fruit beers) but also with enough substance to be good. A nice blend of lager crispness and wheat ale tangyness. A little bit of hops. Strawberries are present but not dominant. Lingering aftertaste that moves in a more sweet direction.

Good medium mouthfeel. Not too carbonated. Feels very nice on the tongue.

Overall, a very surprising beer. I liked it!
