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.

Looks exactly like ginger ale, tons of bubbles rising from the bottom, on the side of glass, and fizzingly up into a large (but quickly diminishing) bone white head. Smells nothing of strawberries, but instead brown sugar, skunk hops and cheap adjuncts. Taste is bitter lager hops, dry, lemon, and maybe a bit of kiddy candy strawberry candy. Doesn’t taste like real strawberries, my guess is added syrup. Aftertaste is strawberry.

Funknmilla (677) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
12 oz bottle...2007...pours a pale straw color, a nice little frothy off white head....strawberry aroma not very strong...an undertone of sourness...totally smells like a strawberry kids cereal!!!...fun...palate is delicate and well balanced...nice strawberry flavor on the front...the back ends like a miller lite...pleasant...:) So I got curious and added a guinness to the abita...and its really really tasty, highly recommend...."No doubt, add a stout!"

radagast83 (4445) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is that of Captain Crunch Berry, no joke. Flavor is that of light strawberry. Probably would go really good with a desert of some kind on a nice hot spring or summer evening.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2007
Light aroma of strawberries and wheat. Pours light yellow with a thin, bubbly head. Very good mouth feel. Very light flavor with a pleasant strawberry quality. Not fake, sugary. Good Summer beer!

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light straw color, with a bit of haze, and some reddish sediment (strawberries?) in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is light malt and strawberries. The flavor is not much else. A bit sweet and a fairly light body. Almost more of a cooler than a beer. But, enjoyable for a change of pace. But, I wouldn’t have more than one at a time.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2007
Shared with a friend (thanks, Tyler) at RFD Washington. This is a bit hazy, and relatively flat. Unfortunately the overall impression of this brew by everyone involved was best encapsulated by Tyler (who is a big Purple Haze fan), who described it as "kid’s toothpaste in a glass." Only for the fruit lovers. (#2773, 4/5/2007)

12oz bottle. Crystal clear golden color. aroma of fresh strawberries! Flavor of bread with strawberry jam. or even low calorie Franknberry Cereal. Very light bodied. Definitely the best ABITA...

Slightly hazy golden body with a medium creamy white head. Sweet strawberry shortcake aroma. Sweet strawberry cream flavor with some honey and caramel in the background.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2007
The aroma smells of fresh strawberry with some sourness thrown in which pretty much describes the flavor. Unfortunately, such a sweet beer has a light palate and minimal carbonation. I’m not repelled by this easy drinking beer and would try it on tap. I like the sweet berry overtone but wish there was more to this beer whether it be some citrus, bitter hops or a fuller body (yeah I know its hot In New Orleans). Thanks to Rich L. for getting this one in the mail from La.

shigadeyo (2980) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Very light peach color, pratically golden yellow. Mild carbonation. Foamy white head that disappeared quickly. At first it smelled like any other plain lager, but after awhile a subtle stawberry and cream scent came through. Initial flavor is kind of buttery and honey-like, but then the strawberry comes out. Very slight bitterness in the finish. Somewhat watery. Very light beer and soft on the palate. 12 oz bottle, $1.50 from Party Town.
