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.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Mild, slightly stale aroma of caramel malt, light hops and yup, some pecans. Flavourís the same: Starts slightly sweet with caramel malt followed by light nuts & hops and finishes with a dry, mild bitter finish. Average bodied. Itís alright, I can drink it no problem, itís just not something Iíd be likely to get again.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Slightly hazy reddish-amber, average frothy head. Cereal, very light dry, almost stale hops, and something bitter-sweet, maybe pecan shells? I like the taste a little more, lightly sweet, like nutty maple syrup, very light floral hops, dry and delicate. Watery, lightly carbonated, slightly bitter aftertaste after an up-front mild sweetness. Didnít hate it.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 25, 2007
THOUGHTS: Such a crazy idea I had to try it. Nothing apectacular, but not bad either. Had it a few week later and noticed way more nuttiness in the aroma than I did during my initial experience. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium amber with a small to average, white head that fully diminished and left no lacing. The aroma was moderate to light nutty and caramel malt. Just a touch of actual pecan aroma. The inital flavor was moderately sweet with a shor finish. The initial flavor was of sweet caramel and the finish was just kind of nutty with a little pecan in the middle of the mouth. The medium palate was slightly dry with soft carbonation and a somewhat metallic finish.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Bottle; poured an orange amber with small white head. Aroma of toffee and nuts; a little sweet and funky. Flavor was very bland; some toffee and a light hint of nuts. Another boring offering from Abita.

Hinez57 (173) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Nice light amber appearance with the pecans (not pronounced like pee-can) coming through just a little on the nose. The flavor is nice and malty with the Pecan flavor coming through really well. Hop bittering is low as is the hop aroma. This beer had a really nice mouthfeel, I gave it a 4 on that account. Overall this is an enjoyable and versitile brew, one Iíll be having for a long time to come. As for Abita, this one rivals the Turbodog.

MadIndian (2342) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest 07 with Stegosaurus. Amber pour with sweet aroma. Not much to say about this one it just did not do anything for me.

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - OCT 21, 2007
ratebeer mis-classifies this as an Amber Ale. This is a fruit/herb flavored ale. And itís not bad. But I couldnít see drinking this in quantity

shrubber85 (7293) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle. Sour milk aroma. Medium amber color with large head. Slightly sweet apple and pecan malt flavor. Light body like most Abita beers. Nice flavors - nothing bad - just nothing spectacular and on light side.

ajolly2 (129) - USA - OCT 19, 2007
Hazy amber color, thick & frothy off-white head; high carbonation; very nice smell with hints of brown sugar and...nuts; very light-bodied and watery; the mouthfeel and taste donít match up with the aroma and appearance; the beer looks like itís going to be good, but once in the mouth it doesnít taste like anything above water.
