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.

Pale yellow-gold, white fizzly head in the glass with a definite aroma of burnt strawberries, a toasty taste with a super carbonated feel and very reminiscent of soda. For what it is, I would recommend it, and perhaps to someone that is not a huge fan of the bitterness or sting of boozy or hoppier brews.

I hate to say it but this beer is... kinda good. I mean, I was expecting this to taste like a Dum Dum sucker but the strawberry is quite subdued. I dunno how much of it is real vs. artificial flavor but whatever it is, it is not over the top and stupid. The base beer seems nice too. It is a cloud golden lager w/ nice bread-like character to it. There is a little bit of strawberry in the aroma and just a touch of sweetness to bring it out when you taste this. This is a light bodied and very drinkable ale finishes w/ a touch of bitterness and light lingering strawberry notes. I am not one hundred percent in love w this or anything but it is much better than I expected.

mansquito (3416) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Stolen from the work: Pours golden with fizzy head. Aroma is strawberry syrup and more syrup. Taste is light lager followed by a fortunately not overly sweet strawberry flavor that unsubtly lingers on. Not bad, but this is just bad beer with extra strawberry.

puboflyons (2152) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 10, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz bottle. The pour is hazy yellow with a white fizzy head. The aroma is a mesh of toasted breaded malts and strawberry. The body is light and refreshing. The taste brings out the strawberry character a bit more than the nose with a crisp clean finish. This is good for the style that it represents.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium yellow or straw color with white head. Aroma is definite strawberry and either grassy or wheat. Nothing offensive about this. The flavor is mild to medium strawberry and the flavor is quite nice backed by malt and wheat. Surprisingly decent flavor.
