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. Cloudy copper pour w/ lots of carbonation. Strawberry aroma hits you right away. After fruit flavor dissapates, there isn’t much more to this offering.

bottled - nice subtle strawberry aroma and flavor. Pale golden color. A good summer afternoon on the deck beer.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a mildly hazy golden orange with fizzy white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of strawberries with mild notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Better than I expected.

12oz can poured to pint glass. Loads of brilliant white head that lingers for some time. Moderate lacing. Smells mildly of artificial strawberry flavoring. Straw colored and looks a lot like most American adjunct lagers. Mild Tangy sweet strawberry flavor with little else. I used to like this when it was still a seasonal item and was still flavored with fresh first harvest Louisiana strawberries. Not the case anymore. A nice novelty for the light beer drinker but not much here otherwise. So sad........ Cheers!

12oz bottle of the worst beer of 2015....so far. Poured an okay looking dirty straw body with a foamy average sized head. Aroma/flavor of 3 things....rotting strawberries, dusty old grains, and vomit. This beer is atrocious.

Initial taste is full of strawberry. Very sweet with a held back taste of hops.

12oz bottle - Fruit beers vary wildly in their approach to the fruit that’s being showcased. Some are extremely fruit forward with a jammy, fruit fruit aroma and flavor and others are extremely pedestrian with barely any fruit noticeable. This beer falls towards the lower end of the fruit spectrum, and seemed very restrained. It was clean, somewhat refreshing, and the strawberries did show up in the flavor...but they reminded me dried strawberries. I think I have a few female friends that might enjoy this.

The aroma has a lot of strawberry with some lager yeast, and the appearance is an opaque golden with a small white head. The taste initially has some slightly sweet and slightly sour strawberry, but it quickly subsides to a lot of sour lager yeast flavor. The aftertaste is nearly non-existent with lager yeast lingering on the tongue, and it has a soft carbonation, slick texture, and a medium-light body.

Still leaning toward the stereotypical light foofy side of fruity beers. The strawberry is light. Fairly pleasant, but slightly medicinal. Otherwise, not a whle lot going on here. This "This brew has earned quite a reputation in a short time" kinda makes me laugh. 15th percentile. Nice rep :)"

Bottle - fair size foamy head, pale straw color, definite strawberry aroma and flavor but not overpowering at all, mild sweet malt backbone, mild earthy hops - actually not too bad, definitely better than I expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I couldn’t even finish it. I thought the strawberry flavor would be wonderful for summer time, it just tasted like a weird mushed fruit blended with a mediocre beer.
