Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Pecan Harvest Ale

Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans that have been toasted to perfection. That makes it something really special, because most beers with a nutty flavor or aroma aren’t made with real nuts. The natural oils from the Louisiana pecans give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma.

12 oz bottle poured into a duvel tulip at approximately 48 degrees

Appearance: Copper orange with a nice 1 inch head and decent head retention.

Smell: Pecans, caramel, vanilla, cinammon, ending with raisin/prune

Taste: Bitter fruit, maybe cranberries and prunes with a hint of sour apple. Vanilla and caramel followed by a wheaty finish.

Mouthfeel- Light and bubbly, slightly tart

Overall: I was not a fan of this beer, to me the mouthfeel resembles a fermented cider. The color is beautiful however and the smell reminds me of fall. This was interesting to try, but I won't be having it again.

A-Pours a burnt orange with a small tan head. The head fads fast with almost no lacing. A some what active flow of bubbles up from the bottom of the glass.

S-Get a big whiff of pecan right off the bat. Then some citrus hops and a slight sweet malt aroma.

T-It starts with a noticeable pecan flavor, which is nice since many nut flavored ales come up a little weak in that area. A small amount of caramel and roast malt flavor in the middle. Floral and citrus hop flavor in the finish.

M-Carbonation is pretty good on this beer. A very crisp beer. It has a light body, lighter then American Brown ales I think.

O-Better then I was thinking it would be. I am not a big fan of pecans but it compliments the beer quite nice. Would have like the malt to be more of a player in the flavor. All in all a good beer session beer though.
