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.

12oz bottle(7/20/08)-A slightly hazy golden body with a nice white head. It has an aroma of strawberries and Boo Berry cereal. The flavor is of strawberries and strawberry Kool-Aid. This light bodied brew is a little sweet but good.

Overall a pretty decent brew and very well balanced. A little hesitant at first, my mind was changed pretty quickly. Pours a bright cloudy golden colour with a full white head. Taste is very refreshing, soft fresh strawberries and honey on the nose. On the palate, strawberries again as well as a little grass. Clear and clean taste throughout the beer.

Pours a light clear golden coloring, has a breakfast ceral malt aroma with that artifical fruit flavoring, like strawberry quick. A decent lager as a standalone, biscuity albeit grainy cereal maltiness, with a very thin body and fading artifical fruit flavors.

Bottle. Yellow pour with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of sweet strawberry syrup and...lager. Tastes like a macrolager with Quaker Oats strawberry instant oatmeal mixed in. That said, it’s not altogether unpleasant. I probably won’t buy it again, but I wouldn’t turn it down at a party.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of strawberries / berries, and grains. Tastes of strawberries (more so than the aromas). Thinner body.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 Bottle at Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar in Nashville. Pours golden with a white head. Macro like texture. Beery and strawberry aroma. Flavor is pretty much strawberry, cheap pale lager, a hint of nuts, all combined with too much sweetness. Not my thing.

Bottle. Lovely powdery strawberry aroma fills the room, reminds of certain brands of strawberry ice cream. Cloudy light yellow-golden with medium carbonation and a fluffy, creamy white head. Watery body with light crispiness and thin strawberry sweetness. I swear I’ve had mixed-fruit gelato like this. The underlying lager is weak; otherwise, this might compete for a 3.0. Decent light summer fare.

Hesitant to buy a single, I’m now kicking myself for not getting the entire sixer. This is a surprisingly wonderful fruit beer. Looks like a pale lager with a golden yellow body and fluffy white cap. Delectable aroma of candied strawberries, very subdued and intriguing. Crisp yet soft on the palate, it’s a delicate mouth feel with a sweet, fruity punch. The flavor really stands out with a nice pale malt backbone and complimenting fresh strawberries. The fruit really accents this lager and tastes genuine. Thumbs up to Abita for this delicious treat.

This contained far too much strawberry flavor. Taste reminded me of the strawberry daiquiris synonymous for the area where this is brewed. Too sweet and off target.

Thanks to deepsouth for this one Bottle poured into my pint class produced a finger worth of white head that turns to a thick lace. This sits on top of a hazy pale light gold body Aromas of strawberries lots of them fill your nose Flavors of strawberries and bread wow this stuff is strange but in a good way interesting. Light and crisp mouthfeel so it makes for a good summer treat An interesting beer glad I tried it. Don’t think I could drink too many of these but It would be fun to have every once in a while. The strawberry flavor is great and refreshing so it is a great summer brew
