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.

My 2nd Abita brew. Really attractive amber pour with a nice head. Smells exactly like a load of bread. Very yeasty. Actually tastes better than it smells but still not really impressive. A little sweet but I donít detect any pecans. Kind of a sharp aftertaste. Just ok. Not great but not awful either.

Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Received a single 12-oz bottle from oetiii in Antigo, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin film and white ring. Aroma of light multi-grain bread dough, some citrus hops, and some roasted nuts. Taste is light to medium bodied, plenty of carbonation, with flavors of light multi-grain malt, some roasted nuts, and a little citrus bitterness. Finish is slightly watery with a multi-grain malt aftertaste. Iíve had some intense pecan nutty flavor beers before (ie: Bertrams Hazelnut Ale), Abitaís Pecan Harvest is missing the pecan flavor.

Bottle. Pours a bubbly amber with two inches of head. Smells like bread. Tastes like copper and finishes dry.

my favorite Abita brew. Nutty, roasty aroma and flavor. Nice bitter dry mouthfeel that you get from eating pecans present in the beer.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Amberish pour with a thin cap. A nice and subtle nose of citrus hops, sweet bready malt and pecan nuttiness. The body is thin and drinkable, with a nice balance of buttery nuts and caramel malt. The hops are secondary, adding a little grass and citrus here and there. I had to drink an entire six pack to get the subtlety of this beer, but the pecans do add a nice touch.

Nice malt, the pecans donít come across overly strong, a bit of astringency from the nuts detracts.

Funknmilla (730) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
12 oz bot....slightly cloudy amber...beige head, that says Iíll see you later....sweet malty aroma, pecans barely show through, more of just general nuts....taste is more mocha than pecan...body is average to watery...the pecans had too much water added to them...a touch of lacing...... I had this beer with pecan pie, and well the pie showed up the beer, no compliments, how sad

Clear, dark amber body. Short, off-white head. The nose is grainy and biscuity with notes of caramel and nut. The flavor is moderately sweet and mildly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, slightly sticky, with a mildly bitter and dry finish.

Chillaxin (7) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - DEC 22, 2007 does not count
Bottle.Very smooth beer. Light tan head that doesnít last too long. Captures the pecan flavor tremendiously. Very nutty flavor, with all the bitterness of a pecan.

swanmann (704) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 21, 2007
The bottle poured clear copper color with soft tan head. The aroma is heavily malted with mild. Dry with nice pecan bitterness, but I didnít get much pecan flavor. Not bad as a whole though.
