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.

Ok but I was expecting more from a brewery that brews other flavored beers and is located close to a strawberry growing region. Not a memorable strawberry flavor.

Pours a very hazy pale yellow with a small white head. The smell is faint with no strawberry. The taste is ok and is smooth going down. I think like most lagers easy drinking just kind of bland.

Very refreshing beer and a good changeup from all the citrus wheat beers out there. A beer that you could definitely drink multiples of on a summer day.

Wheat followed by a strawberry/vanilla taste that smooths out and fades.

Taste Rating in Words: Sitting around the pool, grilling, eating, enjoying and as the sun sets you finish the day off with a big piece of strawberry cheesecake.

Bottle to glass. Strawberry is strong in aroma, clean, not much else. Taste is light grass and strawberry, touch of Soapyness. Very easy drinking. Minimal carbonation and minimal head. Nothing special, but it’s an OK simple spring beer.
