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.

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 (786) - 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 (1499) - 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.

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

b3shine (6403) - Indiana, USA - MAR 28, 2015
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.
