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.

Frothy white head that retains an almost one-finger width. Lots of bubbles on the glass. The body is a hazy, orange-golden color.

Smells of real strawberries/strawberry candy.

Taste: grain backbone, but mostly forward strawberry. A little bread. Slightly sweet. A minute hop finish. Bready aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: fluffy, carbonated.

Finishes mostly dry, crisp, and refreshing.

Overall: this is the best fruit-infused beer I have had this far. This is a superior beer for its category, and a very excellent beer overall.

This is my first review, so here it goes

A-Poured quickley down the center of a pint glass, had a thick white head that stuck around for a while. The beer was gold in color, transparent and lightly carbonated

S- Smelled like strawberry shortcake champagne. Fresh strawberry smell, nothing fake about it

T- Starts with a watery wheat with a litte grain. Small hint of citus in the hop profile. Finishes sweet strawberry, almost causes strawberry breath

M- Light in the mouth with light carbonation. Finishes sweet on the back of the tounge and dry on the palate

Overall this is a solid fruit beer! I am no a big fruit beer guy, but after drinking a 6 pack this will be my go to fruit beer. I actually called Pints o Plenty In forrest VA to see if they could get me a keg
