Bottle. Sweet nose, lots of caramel with some nuts in the background. Deep mahogany color. A little thin, but works well for the soft nutty flavors. Really enjoyable.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
