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.

nice aroma of strawberries and none too chemical. flavor is very dry and quite bitter as well. like their purple haze, the fruit flavor is quite muted and might even be called subtle, despite the over the top aromas in this one. i guess that works to its advantage, though i still have no interest in this style after an example like this.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2009
12 oz bottle from Archer Liquors. This poured a thin watery yellow, some head. Smells kind of like pop tarts. Taste is similar but a bit better. A decent strawberry flavor but has some weird sugary aftertaste. Not bad at all, better than I thought it would be.

topherh (1923) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet strawberry. Flavor is not as strong as the aroma. There is definitely a strawberry flavor that mixes well with the breadiness and hint of butter. Almost shortcake like. Very enjoyable.

Nice strawberry aroma, excellent head. Not bad for a session/lawnmower brew. Fruit beers are disdained by some, but the wife plans on making beer bread with it. I will drink more of it.

Cavie (4305) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Clouded yellow. Strong sweet smell. Strawberries are definitely present. Tingle over the palate. Not quite as sweet as I would have hoped. Strawberries add aroma and not much flavor. Still has a citrus acidity feeling regardless of the fruit choice. Bready finish. Almost has a tea finish. Extra point for the aroma.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a one finger snow white head. The nose is malt and strawberry saltwater taffy. The taste is malt, wheat and some light strawberry in the finish. The flavor is far less sweet than the aroma suggests which is a good thing. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad really for what it is. A nice summer beer.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle... Lightly hazed, straw-colored lager with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. The aroma is grainy and biscuity with a nice touch of strawberry extract and a whisper of buttery diacetyl. Light-bodied and mildly creamy with tingly carbonation. Lightly sweet; lightly tart flavor with some strawberry essence. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Very light color of straw; slightly hazy. Good near-white head. Light (slippery) lace. I don’t smell any berry unless you count the Frankenberry-like smell. Also, this has a milky lactose nose. Lots of sourness, particularly in the swallow and the aftertaste. The carbonation is quite low. This is an odd flavored beer; not my style.

spfeiff1 (1) - USA - MAY 9, 2009 does not count
If you are expecting a sickeningly sweet strawberry flavored beer, this is not it. A great hot weather beer, it is a nice clean crisp lager with an aroma of fresh picked strawberries. The strawberry is almost entirely in the nose and finish. Mouth feel is clean and crisp, nice finish, great for hot summer weather like summer in Houston or New Orleans.

(12oz. bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of strawberry ice cream, grain, and husky. Flavor of strawberry yogurt, hops (grass), jelly, and powder sugared waffles.
