COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It may sound nuts, but most ales with nutty flavors or aromas are made without any real nuts. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans. The natural oils from the nuts give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma. Itís wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise itís great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

Pours coppery orange. Aromas of citrus, tangerine especially. Tastes a tad bit nutty, but not too much so. Hops arenít that noticeable in this sweet ale. An ok beer, at best. Abitaís fall season all just arenít that great.

Interesting beer design - had to give it a try at Bourbon Street Grill in Hellís Kitchen section of Manhattan. On the malty side, the Pecan is obvious, but didnít find it overbearing. Makes for a sweet beer overall, with a dry roasted pecan finish.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Shadyside. Slightly sweet with only a mild taste of pecans. If you donít want an over the top nut beer this is for you.

12oz bottle poured hazy amber with thin pff white head, dissipated quickly with little lacing. Nose is nutty malt and taste is similar. Mild carbonation with fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet finish.

Doesnít really compare pecan beers like Lazy Magnoliaís, but this has a mild appeal as well. Light brownish colored, thin head, slightly sweet.

From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Aroma slightly nutty, most of the head vanished in a minute. Light caramel color with a slightly nutty, medium sweetness to the taste. The carbonation was a little fizzy. Overall itís drinkable, solid but not spectacular.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2013
A hazed reddish amber ale with a thick collapsing mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty malt with grassy notes, faint cinnamon. In mouth, a sweet nutty malt with grassy hops, very restrained, OK.

Draft at Ninth Ward with Linh, Scarlett and Meg. Pours a clear amber brown body with thin white lacing. Aroma is light nut and caramel malt. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation and notes of sweet caramel malt, light grass and nut. Overall, very tame.

Gusher. Lovely reddish pour huge head. Aroma of wood, urea malt. Tastes similarly woody. Not really all that much pecan. Not oversweet, but sweet n sorta watery. A disappointment would not get again but ok.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Had on-tap for a $4.50 pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Appearance: Good looking beer. A deep brown (ahem, PECAN) colored brew with a nice little two finger, creamy head on top. I was basically expecting a glass of brown water, but this was a good looking pint. Lacing was patchy from top to bottom... not bad at all. Smell: I can say, maybe embarrassingly so, that I donít ever remember having pecans before in any form. Yes, that means no pecan pie, or anything of the sort. I have smelled pecans before though, and this beer does have that smell. A sweet pecan, caramel aroma. Not interesting, not awful, itís alright. Taste/feel: Quite a lot like the smell. I read some things about this beer before having it, and itís what I expected almost exactly. The pecan and caramel is there from beginning to end, and thatís it. Thereís no other dimension of flavor. Thereís not much of a bitterness. Itís not bad by any means, but itís very, VERY one-note. Carbonation is quite high, and the feel is pretty low. I donít love it, but this is actually a very solid, sessionable brew. If youíre looking for something to send your taste buds on a ride, this may not be it, but itís still a decent beer.
