COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ripe, red Louisiana strawberries are harvested at the peak of the season in the early morning chill. The scent of the juicy red Ponchatoula berries fills the air as they’re picked and pressed for Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager. The end result is a light, crisp lager with just a hint of strawberry sweetness.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Straw color, slightly hazy, with a white head. Aroma of strawberry and a sub-par lager. Taste is wheat, very weak and artificial strawberry, and bad, impure watery lager. Similar to Purple Haze, but with strawberries rather than raspberries. Not a fan.

darbeer75 (396) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2016
Aroma: all lager and little or no strawberry; Appearance: light straw, clear, with white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: starts with a lager and quickly transforms to odd, almost burned plastic taste; Palate: light bodied with no finish; Overall: really wanted to like this but don’t understand the appeal. Drain pour.

polo_marco (301) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Smells of semi sweet strawberrlies and light malts. Nice light yellow color. Taste is slightly malty with a hint of strawberry in the backend. Smooth crisp carbonation with light body, quite refreshing. Not bad overall but could use a stronger strawberry flavor.

April 27th, 2014 - Pretty and blonde, the Harvest Lager is a playful sprite from a hot land, giving a sweet veneer to a light beer palate. The aroma is close to marketing, whipped cream and strawberries evident on the nose from the first whiff. Moving forward, the palate is light, which I appreciate, given that this feels like a way to cool down on a hot Southern summer day, and less like a way to finish a heavy winter meal. A lighter carbonation also gives this some much needed levity, and a bar against sweating brows and upper lips. Given my expectations for a brewery with a very large circulation, I’m quite pleased with the Strawberry Harvest Lager, and continue to suck on the honey flavored aftertaste after each sip.

I found this beer to have a light and pleasant strawberry flavor. I feel this would be a nice and refreshing summertime beverage.

tightslice (848) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is sulphur, strawberry candy. Taste like someone put a few of those strawberry candies in a bottle of seltzer. Acidy and unwelcome...although might hold up next to a couple of BL Limes.

12 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a semi transparent mildly turbid orange-yellow color, wispy white head formed, laced extremely well upon the vessel, and stayed around long enough to have a smoke, take the dog out, and get a side drink of Powerade Zero (my dirty little secret of slamming back a case all night, then waking up at 6am wanting HELL.). Aroma of overly ripe strawberries, yeast, and strawberry quik- meh. Hits the mouth with a light body, strawberries dominate throughout, and you really have to find the malt- which seems kinda basic and not overly sweetened, middle is pure quik, finish is a trainwreck of sugar, strawberry quik, and the acid in your mouth after you vomit. Gee, that’s nice.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy light yellow color. Aroma and taste are grass and strawberries. A bit watery.
