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.

Pours a very clear gold color, not a hint of red or pink. The are zero bubbles in the drink, only the head, which is a bright white and reasonably thick, though it's got no retention.

Slight cotton candy smell, but little in the way of strawberry juice or anything beer-related.

The taste is actually pleasant. Has a wheat base and while the strawberry juice is prevalent, it's not overwhelming, just right I'd say.

Nice tangy wheat feel, feels carbonated though it's clearly not, both sweet and tart from the berry juice. Light bodied, with a sharp scratch of the tongue for a crisp finish.

Would like more alcohol, but it's a pleasant beer and something I'd like more of in the warmer months.

I bought a sixer based on some conversations on Summer Beers here on BA.

Poured into my SA perfect Pint, the beer is a light hazy gold with a dense off-white head.

As expected the aroma is of strawberries with some grains and grass in the background.

The strawberry taste is the thing here, but the taste is not overpowering or too sweet. The base beer adds a nice bit of malt with some bread notes.

The mouth is on the lighter side with decent carbonation. The beer is light, semi-sweet and pretty refreshing. Between this on Purple Haze (which I prefer over this one), the brewer has fruit beers down.
