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.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A: Burnt-Orange/Amber color with a slight head that dissipates shortly after pour. No flim, no lacing, but some serious carbonation streams.

S: I was expecting this to have massive nutty aroma, but was surprised when only slight nose of nut came through. Not much of a scent after that, maybe some malt.

T: C'mon Abita, you got me all excited with this Louisiana pecan talk and you didn't hold up your end. Real slight nut flavor. Instead I get a everyday, hop/malt taste. Yawn.

M: Some carbonation and the slightest nut flavor in aftertaste. Let down.

O: Darn. I was excited to try this one out, but it just was unbelievably lackadaisical. I could see this being a keystone beer if they went back to the drawing board and actually did to the beer what the label says.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I had no idea pecans were a major thing in Louisiana. Shows what I know about American agriculture these days. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset auburn topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises toasted biscuit, light honey, light toffee, and a vague sense of nuttiness (I can't say with any certainty that I'm smelling pecans, but it's definitely some sort of nut, anyway). The taste brings in more of the same, along with a hint of brown sugar-cinnamon. Unfortunately, everything is now watered-down, slightly blander than before. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice little beer, nothing special, but something I could see drinking again.
