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.

12oz bottle. Nothing special here, just a below average amber ale. Not sure I even tasted any pecan. It was drinkable enough to finish but not planning on getting any more of these.

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear light amber. Fluffy white head. Nutty. Toast. Caramel. Semi dry. Pleasant modest sweetness. Nutty, toasty finish. No bitterness. Fine.

Smell is weird on first blush, different though...pecan and sweetness....good! Taste is less sweet and good, flat on carbonation though...still not bad...but one dimentional on flavor

Pours an amber from a bottle, slightly skunky aroma, flavor somewhat cloying like an amber, but not overly sweet, somewhat bitter, but not from hops, likely from the nuts. Not terribly nutty either. Meh.

Found in the seasonal section of my favorite local distributor, decided it sounded interesting enough to try. Try is all I would want to do with this brew, not bad but no strong points except perhaps the dark gold/amber color. Almost no head, with a little lacing. Aroma is that of a pecan pie being baked. Flavor is lightly sweet with virtually no bitterness. Very light bodied and a bit weak and watery. finishes drags out with notes of fresh pecans.

Real nutty aroma and taste. It definitely has more of a nut flavor which I’m not sure is a good thing.

Partial 12 oz bottle served in a Tulip glass. Aroma is very lightly malty with notes of hay and nuts. Appearance is a clear dark golden to light amber color with a thin white head and some light lacing. Taste is lightly sweet with a touch of bitterness toward finish. This is a light bodied beer with a thin texture with lighter carbonation. Long lightly nutty finish. Overall this is a light flavored beer yet unique and enjoyable.

Maple in color, medium, quickly dissipating head. Nutty aroma as expected. Flavor was thin and watery for something advertising pecans. A bit more turned up in the finish as it warmed...probably a gateway beer for a Sam Smith’s, at best.

Ok so it good but is not a beer that blows you away in anyway but it does have a cool nut flavor. Pour is chestnut in color with a small white head. Aroma very lite but pleasant and nutty. A lite body easy drinker that has little to no hop presence but it does have nuts lol.

Didn't find pecans in this beer, maybe slight notes in aroma . However, not bad ale. Caramel sweetness in taste isn't annoying. Good , though nothing special.
