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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: light golden-yellow hue with a light haze and effervescence. Head is a finger of creamy white foam with decent retention. Not bad.

Smell: lightly malty aroma with a moderate strawberry note. Not over the top, which I like, but also not terribly complex.

Taste: much like the aroma, there's a light malt flavor with a fair bit of strawberry character. I'm generally not a fan of strawberry beers; I think the fruit is too subtle to really stand out in a beer context.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess.

Overall: this beer is fine, although it really doesn't float my boat. Well-enough made, it just doesn't have a strong appeal.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a fairly clear medium straw color with a decent sized bubbly white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Aromas of strawberry but a bit on the subtle side. Light spice, lemon, and just a touch of yeasty funk. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Yeasty wheaty with a hint of lemon and funk with a solid hit of strawberry to add a bit of complexity. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice fruity light easy drinking summer ale, I quite enjoyed it.
