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.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a lemon yellow body with a strong matix of big bubbles racing to the surface. There is a thin white head that boils away before the first sip.

S-This beer has a clean aroma with a faint strawberry hint in the finish.

T- The strawberry bubble gum flavor comes through in the finish and then lingers. There is very little other flavors with some mineral water flavors that grow as the beer opens.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- This beer has very little flavor and the strawberry character is a bit artificial. It was not that it has lots of bad flavor but it just has no flavor.

A - Hazy yellow pour with a fizzy white foam. Mild lacing.

S - Nice smell of strawberry preserves. The sweet sugary fruit is very dominant.

T - Pleasant springtime beer. Some light grains are noted, but the sweet taste of fresh strawberries is potent and consistent throughout drinking.

M - The sweetness could be a bit tiresome, but this is an easy drinking beer. Actually paired great with peppery Cajun food.

O - Certainly worth a try, and better than many of the spring seasonals out there.
