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.

Bottled. Poured clear pale golden with a short, fizzy cap of white head. The aroma picked up musty strawberry seeds with a wheat and pale malty backing.. not bad. The flavor had sticky-sweet pale malts at the core with the same musty strawberries and prickly wheat sourness.. dry and unpleasant on the back with an almost rotting strawberry feel.. empty and unsatisfying at the finish. Light-bodied on the palate with scratchy carbonation.. OK use of fruit, but still not enjoyable in any regard.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Interesting, but I don’t think I would drink this one again. Pours a slightly cloudy blond with a thin white head. Weird ripe strawberry aroma. Large strawberry flavor and very sweet. A bit too much for me.

Headbanger (3773) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2008
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.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2008
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.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 15, 2008
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.

bconger (143) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2008
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.

hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2008
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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2008
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.

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2008
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.
