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.

I consider the arrival of strawberry harvest one of the first signs of spring in Louisiana along with signs advertising availability of boiled crawfish. The two go hand in hand and are really great together.

Strawberry harvest is a refreshing and tasty fruit beer and my favorite of the strawberry beers offered regionally.

It is only available seasonally and I generally squirrel a couple six packs away to ease myself into summer.

Overall Not bad. The beer itself is pretty lackluster in flavor. The strawberry is there, but not a whole lot of fruity flavors appear. They meld with the lager and make it a little smoother. Overall, eh.

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.
