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. It’s wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise it’s great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear roast red,smallfirm head. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel. Evident nutty/woody flavour that I assume is derived from the pecans, Low bitterness. A bit one-dimensional, and the malt profile is well simplistic.

This amber ale pours a medium amber color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is nutty, fruity and sweet. Medium to light bodied amber. The malts are fruity and sweet. The pecans add a nutty and earthy flavor to this beer. The hops are floral and earthy. This beer has a definite nuttiness to it, which sort of adds to the flavor. The “regular” Abita amber was sort of bland, the pecans add some flavor to it. It’s a little thin and watery but not to bad. Nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch nutty.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle from the First Houston Tasting
Pours a nice, semi-thick amber with an aroma of faint, malted pecan. Flavor is weak roasted malt, with a faint (emphasis on faint) pecan finish. Watery mouthfeel. Not assertive enough; without "pecan" in the name I probably wouldn’t have detected said ingredient.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 12 oz. Clear copper with a medium and lasting head. Aroma is earthy nut and cocoa. Taste is toasted nut, and slightly sweet cocoa. Nearly medium palate is dryish.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 12 oz bottle at Houston Beer Tasting. Pours a cloudy orange with virtually no head. My nose must have been slightly stuffy because I could hardly pick up any aroma or it just doesn’t have much of one. Taste is of pecan but not much else; not complex. Mouthfeel is medium to thin and has some carbonation. I was hoping for more to it and was thus not impressed.

Aroma of nuts/pecans as it warmed. Flavor was extremely bland. About what I expect from an Abita beer.

In a 12oz bottle. Initially, I couldnt smell any pecans - but then I blew my nose...guess I had boogies in there. Still, the nutty aroma was light at best. The hop characteristic was a bit too high, negating any real pecan flavor. Also, the carbonation seemed quite sharp, whereas a bottle conditioning might have been a better choice to highlight the pecans. After writing this review, I have changed my mind and lowered the score - realizing that I really didnt like this beer. Lo siento.

Poobah (294) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Nice nutty-sweet aroma. Dark amber color with thin but persistent head. Malty intro and full mouthfeel with some carbonation. There is a genuine dry and sweet nuttiness to the beer, especialy in the aftertaste. Good bitter finish as well. One of their better seasonals.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Clear amber brown, brief eggshell head. Aroma is all caramel with some earthy tones. The palate is very similar to the Abita Amber, but there is a definite nuttier flavour to it (had them side by side), not that I could honestly say it is pecan if I were in a blind taste test. A little simplistic, but enjoyable.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2007
First Official Houston Tasting. Pours like a DIPA, dark orangish color with nice big head. Huge biscuit and bready nose, some pecan in there for sure. Flavor was very mild with malty biscuit notes and some nuts. Finish was very quick with a bitter pecan after taste. Not bad for Abita.
