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.

Aroma was rotten, putrid strawberries. Flavor was hindered by the thinness of the body and was basically a mild strawberry flavor with some carbonic tang, some weird oily sweetness. The finish is a memory of that awful aroma.

The strawberries are undeniable. Beer is golden yellow with a white head, some lacing produced. Smell is overwhelmingly strawberries, with a standard lager malt beneath. The taste is the same - a straightforward lager overlain with strawberries. The beer is not sweet, and not exceptionally complex. Mouthfeel is just slightly smooth and slick. A decent beer but not exceptional aside from the strawberries; your response to the flavor will certainly depend on whether you like the berry influence. I like the berries, but the overall beer aside from them simply isn't complex enough to warrant a particularly high score.

Appearance - clear, deep yellow with fluffy white head that leaves behind thorough lacing.
Aroma - good hint of strawberry, light on malt
Taste - enjoyable, dry malt backing a hint of strawberry sweetness without being overpowering, very well balanced
Feel - relatively thin but fitting with the flavor profile, very pleasing on the palate

Strawberry Harvest Lager - Abita Brewing Co is nice and refreshing. Not too complex, sweet or over powering. Nice hit of strawberry as soon as the cap was popped. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick white head. A nice light taste and a nice light mouth feel. A super nice mixture of wheat and strawberry.For a wheat beer, I can say this one works for me. A good summer beer to say the least and very drinkable with a 4.2 ABV.

Great beer to have walking around in sun. The fruity aromas allow for good smells. The head disappears quickly so all the volatiles cant be released. It had a light taste and mouthfeel. The strawberry keeps the bitterness down quite considerably. The beer ended with a smooth finish that didn't linger very long.
