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 at Sunset Grill, fall 2008. Fairly true strawberry nose boasts of more fruit than beer, though it dosent seem candyish or cloying and there does seem to be some malt crispness on the end. Not any flaws that I can detect and a pretty high strength of aroma. Shockingly reserved in fruit sweetness, with seemingly most of the sugars fermented out. You even get some light pale malt graininess and a lager yeast crispness on the finish. No wateriness, medium-light bodied with no alcohol or flaws perceivable. How this brewery is so hit or miss is beyond me.

Smells like strawberry candy. Taste is tart but semi-sweet strawberries, including the green tops. Aftertaste is medium length with strawberry tartness that transitions into wheat. Medium body with sharp medium carbonation that is almost soda-like.

DrunkSanta410 (583) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Golden pour, light white head. Aroma of sweet strawberry juice in Ana enrage lager. Taste is strawberry, hay, grain. Almost like fruity pebbles. That’s it. This is fruity pebbles beer. Light body, sweet. Interesting, with some more refinement this could be pretty solid. Do a strawberry harvest IPA or something with other favors to balance the sweetness.

pottygok (530) - Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Aroma: Very bready malt aromas with hints of strawberry at the edges. Appearance: Cloudy gold with a thin white head. Taste: Medium sweetness with hints of sourness at the edges. Palate: Medium body, light carbonation, syrupy texture, long finish. Overall: Meh...it tastes like drinking strawberry jelly or something similar. Not too much beer, but a lot of fruit here.

ordybill (596) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a distinct strawberry aroma with some wheat Appearance- Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick white head. Taste- You can taste the strawberry, my first thought was that this would be a nice session beer on a hot day. Nice flavor. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a creamy texture. Overall- A nice beer from Abita, I will drink this again.

Bottle to glass. Strawberry is strong in aroma, clean, not much else. Taste is light grass and strawberry, touch of Soapyness. Very easy drinking. Minimal carbonation and minimal head. Nothing special, but it’s a Good simple spring beer.

kdm1984 (806) - Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Strawberry, pils, and unpleasant puke acid in the aroma. Strawberry and pils flavor. A little watery, and then weak in the finish also. Pils and strawberry is somewhat awkward as a combo. Drinkable, and the elements separately are fine, but this beer comes up short overall.

Beerathon (1536) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2015
The strawberry is evident in nose and flavor, but not overwhelming. Typical lager-esque sweetness to go along with the berry flavor, but not cloying. Clean on the palate, easy going. Very light mouthfeel. Alright for what it is.

On tap. A hazy light gold with a white head. Aroma is distinctly strawberry. Very smooth with flavor of strawberry and a hint of biscuit.
