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.

bottle - The schnozberries taste like schnozberries! I had to say it. I’ve written enough reviews where I state the blindingly obvious and I’m going to do so again. Yep, this beer smells and tastes of strawberries. It pours slightly hazy yellow with a one finger head. The strawberries aren’t overpowering, but the beer they’ve been added to is quite light so it doesn’t take much to dominate the flavor. It has a light body and is fairly refreshing. Not bad.

Poured a hazy golden color. The aroma was slightly of kind of sour strawberry. The flavor was malty, and had just a hint of the strawberry. Good carbonation. It wasn’t bad... I’d have it again.

I normally enjoy an occasional fruit beer, but this on just didn’t work for me. It was truly like drinking a strawberry soda, minus the sugar.

This has a great strawberry aroma although it doesn’t look as refreshing as it actually is. It’s a touch watery I wish it had a little more bite to it. I drank a six pack of these in one evening trying to decide if I lied it or not and ended up half drunk without realizing it. Goes down very easy. I couldn’t drink them all the time but for the length of time it is around each year I can see myself drinking a few each year.

Strawberry flavor is definitely present, but doesn’t quite mix well with the beerness. Smells great, but not a good combination

Golden body with a big white soapy head. Nice aroma of strawberry. Surprisingly bitter. Were those strawberries ripe? Throw some cream in there, too. Disappointing, but so are most fruit beers.

not enjoyable- take one can macro lager- throw in some strawberry juice- then drink and repeat. there was some grahamy-ness in there that was nice. It was overwhelming a strawberry flavored malt beverage, and from that perspective, it is a success as a fruit beer to an extent. Not one I would seek out again. My wife liked it.

thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is deffinatly berry with some vanilla. Flavor is where this goes down hill. Very light and watery all around. I detect almost no berry what so ever. Pretty light effort on this one.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 1, 2008
Not too great. Large, frothy, white head. Ever so slight haze to the yellow body. Aroma = grass + strawberry + cream. Tastes like strawberry yogurt with some fizziness.

Medium yellow, slight but persistent head, some precipitate at the bottom of the glass. Aroma of strawberries and some graininess. Lots of grainy pils malt flavors, strawberry is faint on the finish. Touch of sweetness. If the grain notes were cleaner, this could be quite tasty, if not a geek beer.
