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 theyíre picked and pressed for Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager. The end result is a light, crisp lager with just a hint of strawberry sweetness.

Bottle, thanks deepsouth!! Pours a gold color with a big white head. Aroma is strawberries right way. Flavor is some strawberries, honey and light malt. No hops to speak of. Good on a hot day.

Bottle courtesy of deepsouth! Pours a light golden color with a thick white head that dissipates very quickly. Has a nice strawberry aroma with a hint of malt. Has a lot of carbonation and a light mouthfeel. Taste is light and crisp with the right amount of strawberries. Finish is light caramel malt blended with strawberry flavor. Overall not a bad brew. I gave this one to my wife who said it was very good.

Okay - maybe my rating is skewed by the fact that I didnít realize it was a Strawberry Lager until after a few sips and then read the lable. I Iím normally not a "fruit" beer drinker but the Strawberry flavor was not overpowering, the beer was slightly hoppy and not too sweet. It was definitely something different.

Hazy yellow with a thin fleeting white head. Skunky aroma followed by a hint of candied fruit. Watery with very little taste. Some strawberry on the backend, kinda creeps up. Bland is a pretty good one word description for this beer.

Wow. I canít stand this one. Here we go: Pours a dark yellow, strawberry blonde color. Aroma is sour strawberries. Flavor is sour, strawberry, and musty. I hated it. 12 oz. bottle.

ChainGangGuy (4422) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, yellow body with a small, tight, cotton white head. Smell: Strawberries!! Taste: Strong, sweet strawberry flavor, like youíd get from a kidís sugary sweet breakfast cereal with some strawberry yogurt stirred in. No bitterness or real hop character. Finishes same. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: If you dig lagers and sweet strawberries, then you could definitely go for this. For me, it was a bit too sweet.

I really liked this at first but it didnít hold up on multiple tastings. While I was in New Orleans it was fun to try to find it (it is really popular and bars go through the limited supply quickly). Abita makes a really smooth beer but the finish is kind of weak. Unless you get this fresh it doesnít hold up well, I brought a six pack home to Buffalo and by the time I got to it the taste had flattened out

Clear pale yellow with a thin (very thin) white head is short lived. Very light dough lemon smell. Somehow this seems like an Anheuser-Busch attempt at a really mild and bland Hefeweizen. Flavor is watery lemon and fruit. Palate is highly carbonated and thin. Overall, weak and watery.

Pours rich amber with an orangish tint and is cloudy in appearance. Small head. Aroma mostly of strawberry but also a little bit of beer. Taste is a little malty, has a good strawberry flavor and a dry finish. A nice beer substitute for wine. Mouthfeel has a nice lively character.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 Pours a pale, hazy golden color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a minimal head for quite a while. No lacing. Very light smell of malts, hops, and yeast, but itís the strawberries that dominate this smell. Strawberries again with a nice malty backbone. Tastes like a liquid strawberry shortcake or strawberry yogurt. Clean, dry finish with the faintest hop presence. Light bodied, watery and highly carbonated. Nice and clean. This would be an ideal beer on a hot, humid Louisiana afternoon. I wouldnít put it at the top of my list of fruit beers, but I found it quite drinkable.
