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. 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.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle from City Beer Store. Tannish dark brown color, white head, aroma of...pecan. A little wheat and funk. Taste of a thinnish red ale with some pecan, caramel, pretty watery. Enjoyable but only in October.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
9-19-07 bottle. Cloudy amber appearance with a little lacing. Wheaty pecan smell. Reminds me of a pumpkin beer - on the palate only. Very carbonated. Yeasty flavor. Nothing fantastic.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Pours amber with a small white head. Faint aroma, maybe some caramel-ish malt. Faint flavor; the only discernible taste is an odd bitterness that makes me think they may have used pecan shells instead of actual pecans. Passively bad, unlike the actively horrible Purple Haze.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Pours a translucent amber color with no head and very little carbonation. The aroma is better with malts and a slight nuttiness. The flavor is almost missing. Slight malt, some nut and a little hoppiness. To me there is a hole in the middle of the palate very light with little substance.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Dark amber to orange in color with a modest taupe head. Somewhat typical amber aromas with light caramel, nuts and brown sugar. Malt and nut flavors dominate. Smooth and fairly well balanced. Reminds me of a light pecan roll. Simple straightforward amber ale.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Clear orange/amber with a bumpy head. Cookie aroma with a trace of nuttiness (pecan sandies?). Sweet nutty caramel flavor with a slight tangy hop note on the finish. Thin and watery body. Nothing patently offensive flavorwise, but certainly nothing special. Weak, watery and overall boring.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Pours a nice copper orange with large fizzy whtie head. A bit sour aroma, nutty.Strong nutty flavor, slight bitterness beneath a strong malt presence. Too watery, very light.

ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear amber body with a small, short-lived white head. Smell: Aroma of toasted biscuits, a pinch of cloves, caramel, and only a mild (and I do mean mild) hint of pecans. Taste: Dry, crumbly, toasted biscuit flavor with a very subdued caramel sweetness. Lightly spicy hoppiness. A dry, toasted nutty bitterness rises in the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Watery texture. Drinkability: Altogether dull and dreary. I’ve gotten stronger nuttier flavors from non-nut beers. Even as I finish drinking this beer, the thumb points... down!

BREWMUSKCLES (2226) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2007
nice refreshing beer with adequate carbonation and mouthfeel. the beer has a decent malt backbone and a good hop profile. the flavors are a touch weak. and darned if i taste much pecan! it is a bit bitter and somewhat mellow. not bad.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle: Poured a brilliant and bright orange-amber with a big ol’ cushy pillow of a foamy top. From the good visual start, this goes down hill. There isn’t much aroma to speak of here. The beer drinks with a real watery aspect, but in texture and in the relative lack of much flavor. Just a bitter front end and a shadow of caramel. Too mellow for me. (#3124, 10/7/2007)
