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.

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.

appearance: slightly opaque light gold, short white head. aroma: strawberry, hay, light cracker. taste: sweet, fully of jammy strawberry, some light notes of toasted white bread, hint of grass. finish: lingering strawberry sweetness. notes: As advertised and not surprised. Not terrible. I could see this being refreshing on a hot and humid Louisiana day. Draught at the brewpub, New Orleans trip 2016.

Pours a clear golden color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish.This one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

Its a strawberry beer. Its called she wolf, its okay... But you know. Light golden amber. Strawberry jam sweetness. The snozeberries taste like real snozeberries. Some undertones for malt. Light body. You boys ever been to Mexico?

My friend shared her bottle with me. I am not usually a fruit beer kind of person. It was ok. Grainy with sourdough and berry jam.

On tap. Cloudy light orange pour. Luscious berry aroma on the nose. Very nice. Watery mouthfeel but you wouldnít want this to be thick and heavy. Very refreshing. I expected it to be overly sweet and sickening. It was neither. Good show, Abita.

Pours slightly clouded yellow-gold with medium white head that leaves some nice lace. Nose is cereal and strawberry candy. The strongly artificial opening makes the initial palate seem like a corn syrup-lager mix. Iím not a Capín Crunch consumer, but that popped to mind. After a few minutes, though, this beer settles down nicely. Both the aroma and the taste begin to seem more like fresh strawberries. Itís still on the sweet side, but not as cloying as its first impression. While clearly intended as a hot weather beer, this is another brew that benefits from not being served icy cold. For those who like Purple Haze, this is a companion brew.

If this is real strawberry all I have to say is wow. It seems fake. Nose is a bit skunky then strawberry. Taste is fruity and also meaty. Light on the tongue. I can see this being a big chick beer. Carmel skunk and strawberries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy straw yellow in color... Aroma of fruity pebbles, artificial strawberries.... Flavor is crisp and refreshing, lots of wheat and strawberry notes, kind of tastes like juice, good if you are looking for that kind of thing... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark yellow. Strong strawberry aroma with wheat. Aroma is actually fairly similar to Capín Crunch crunch berries. Artificial strawberry flavor is also similar to crunch berries. Fizzy. I like Capín crunch but itís a weird flavor to have in my beer.

6flight tap at Geraghtyís Pub, Burlington, nj. Wow... big strawberry and honey nose. Light cloudy ale is a fun brew and reminds me of bubblicious gum. Probably would stop at one pint.
