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 - light amber with a thick, oft, dense, white head that has great retention

S - pecans, coffee, roasty, caramel, nutty

T - faintly nutty, coffee, roasty, some caramel

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a smooth, sessionable beer with a decent flavor profile. It's nutty and malty without being too much. It's worth a try.

The brew poured with a half a finger of white head on a clear, mahogany body with moderate visible carbonation. The nose has definite notes of pecan nuttiness with a hint of almost maple sweetness. It smelled really good. The taste was not quite as good as the nose. The taste had a lot of the nuttiness that was apparent in the nose with a bit of sweetness. But, the body was a little watery and there was very low carbonation on the taste. The finish was quick with a bit of nuttiness. Honestly, this is my least favorite Abita beer so far. It was a little too watery and boring for me. I wouldn’t have this one again.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, toasted nuts, and some slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same but there are more burnt flavors than toasted flavors. There is a mild burnt bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer with a promising nose but a somewhat disappointing flavor.
