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.

Funky extract/medical strawberry syrup poured into beer aroma. Cloudy pale lager color. Flavor is unique, thankfully not medical. Watery lager flavor with a fairly nice strawberry flavor. A decent mouthfeel, not special. Overall I’ll have another, but it won’t be a regular drink by any stretch. I think I scored this as descent because it’s so "different".

3-May-07 12oz bottle. I keep resisting this one on the shelf because I expect it to be something awful, but I just couldn’t resist it anymore. I was too curious. Pours a hazed pale yellow, unexpectedly, the color of a wit, with a film of white foam. It’s not pretty. Aroma reminds me at first of dehydrated strawberries in breakfast cereal and as it warms slightly there is a shift and the most glorious memory emerges. It smells almost exactly like Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake bars. Flavor is a fresher strawberry taste but the lager beneath is nothing brilliant. Finishes lightly sweet with lingering tartness. Novelty, in this case, was worth the risk.

A good counterpoint to its brother brew Turbodog. The fruitiness is nicely done, but could get on the driner’s nerve after a while.

Moderate head, golden appearance, fruity aroma and everything else; tastes like a fruit soda; not my favorite

Bottle. Nice smell of strawberry. OK head. For some reason I liked this beer. Had a strawberry soda taste that appealed to me. Probably not for everyone.

Bottle. Aroma of strawberries is evident as soon as you pop the top. Not too much head and dissipates quickly. Crisp and light, not bad but I prefer their Purple Haze for fruit beers.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of strong of strawberries, yeast, and a hint of some citrus. There’s nothing subtle about the strawberries on this one. That’s about all I can pick up. Watery finish on the end. Not good at all.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2007
Bottled. Beer is clear, light gold with a thin, vapory, diminishing.<P> Aroma is challenging. It’s packed with heavy notes of buttery diacetyl and cloying, fake strawberry flavor/aroma—evocative of BooBerry Crisp cereal. Otherwise malty with light notes of toasted grain and cereal; Everything else is smothered in the diacetyl and candy-like strawberry.<P> Down the hatch...The flavor is light-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a shorter, sugary-smelling, trace bitter finish. Fruity handcream in the retros. Totally undesirable.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P>

Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain/husks), with notes of diacetyl and artificial/plasticky fruit candy. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Ye gods! Scary stuff.

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.
