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.

I love this beer. No bad aftertaste, sweet, and fresh strawberries added makes this a choice beer for dessert

I do not usually enjoy fruit beers but there is something about this brew from Abita that makes it stand out from the rest. It smells like pure strawberries, appears to be a standard amber with a hint of red, and tastes like heaven. This is the best fruit beer Iíve ever had and canít wait until the spring to have it again.

i wait every year for this beer to hit the shelves. Perfect beer to start the year off on a good note. Smells of fresh strawberrys. The taste is not to overwhelming but big strawberry aftertaste. I recommend this beer for those hot summer days mowing the lawn or just something to sit back and enjoy after a long days work!

A little afraid to try a strawberry beer, but it was an excellent subtle taste of strawberries. Wonderful beer for a hot summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like a buttered bun and tastes like strawberry shortcake. I really liked this beer. An easy smooth beer to drink on a hot spring day.

I love this beer, but I have a real soft spot for strawberry lager. The fresh, locally harvested strawberries are very evident. Light taste that makes for an excellent summer beer. Itís a shame they only make this for two months during the strawberry festival.

This has a great strawberry aroma although it doesnít look as refreshing as it actually is. Itís 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 couldnít 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.

Itís interesting because itís not sweet at all, but itís fruity. The strawberry aftertaste is very fresh; it doesnít taste like imitation strawberry flavor at all. Extremely refreshing.
