Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans that have been toasted to perfection. That makes it something really special, because most beers with a nutty flavor or aroma aren’t made with real nuts. The natural oils from the Louisiana pecans give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma.

A pretty good flavor profile, definitely taste the pecans. They are very prominent and it is a very smooth beer, all flavors being well balanced. The only problem I have with this one is the awkward mouth feel of the beer. It is so far off from what I thought it should be with a beer of this flavor profile. It is a darker beer with a hearty flavor profile, definitely a fall and winter style beer. Yet the mouth feel is extremely watery and lacking any sort of body to hold up the flavor profile. I have had other Abita beers and seem to get this same odd mouth feel. The last one I had was a summer brew though, so it wasn't a problem as much, but this time is quite prominent and ruins a part of the experience.

I would not seek this one out and purchase again. Would drink again if available though, just would not go out of my way for. There are better options.
