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.

Most fruit beers and I don't get along as they usually don't taste like the fruit they're meant to, but more of an artificial version. This tastes like real, fresh strawberries and I loved it. This is what a fruit beer should be.

It pours a light yellow with a thin head. Amour is of strawberry but fant. The taste is just bad, some hint of strawberry but real artificial. This is just bad I usually like most Abita but could not get pass about two sips.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Clear light yellow liquid.

White head; minimal lacing.

Strawberry & wheat nose.

Thin mouthfeel.

Surprisingly tasty yet refreshing strawberry blast. Tasty; a nice surprise.

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.
