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.

This beer is great for the summer. Very good aroma with a strawbery after taste that is very pleasant. I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes beer but wants something with a little different taste.

They are also located close to home so that's nice as well.

Poured a thin head on a clear, hazy golden colored body.
The aroma is all strawberry jam. The real stuff without the extra sugar.
The taste is a strawberry jam with a bit of lager thrown in. Fairly mild flavor, which in this case is good.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It is what it is... a strawberry beer. And at that it does a good job.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I know when I think New Orleans, strawberries strike my brain first in association... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear sunrise brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose is an adept recreation in liquid of a strawberry-flavored Pop-Tart, crust and all. The taste generally brings more of the same, though there's more of that crust flavor and a touch of berry tartness near the finish, which, oddly enough, seems out of place, given the pervasive feeling of sweetness throughout. It also kinda stabs out, an unnatural lightning. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an okay beer at best, but one that just doesn't quite sit all that well with me. Thankfully, the strawberry flavor isn't truly an artificial one, but it's not altogether pleasant, either.
