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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - dark gold with a big, frothy, fizzy, bubbly, pure white head that has decent retention

S - smells a bit like strawberries and cream; lots of strawberry syrup

T - similar to the nose; the strawberries taste almost like strawberry ice cream

M - medium bodied, crisp, well carbonated

This is actually a rather decent beer. The strawberries are pretty much the only flavor that comes through and it's sweet and a bit syrupy. But in both the nose and taste its like strawberries and cream. The flavor reminds me exactly like strawberry ice cream. This isn't a fantastic beer and certainly not one I would drink a lot of at once, but this was a nice, refreshing change of pace for me. I'm glad I tried it. I may pick it up again.

Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager has a thick, off-white, foamy head, a hazy, straw appearance, with some bubble streams and little white specs throughout, and some thin lacing left behind. The aroma is of strawberry-flavored hard candy, shortcake, candy sugar, and white bread. Taste is of yeasty bread, confectionery sugar, white bread crust, Little Debbie Strawberry Shortcake Rolls, strawberry seeds, and there is an underlying strawberry juice flavor with this. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with some slickness, actually, and Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager finishes dry, super sweet, and sugary. Overall, for a beer in general it’s okay, but it’s a very good flavored, gimmick beer. I suppose it’s worth trying.
