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.

12 oz. bottle. Label dates not notched. Regular yellow color under fizzy head, a little bit hazy. Strawberries in smell seems natural, not overdone, with room for beer malt in the nose, too. Well, I think the taste is enjoyable. Strawberries donít overwhelm. Malt seems to carry more of the sweetness. Just a bit of hop bitterness. Finishes nicely. A simply well-done fruit beer, not an easy thing to find.

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.

wombat23 (380) - Texas, USA - APR 12, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Straw color, slightly hazy, with a white head. Aroma of strawberry and a sub-par lager. Taste is wheat, very weak and artificial strawberry, and bad, impure watery lager. Similar to Purple Haze, but with strawberries rather than raspberries. Not a fan.

Aroma: all lager and little or no strawberry; Appearance: light straw, clear, with white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: starts with a lager and quickly transforms to odd, almost burned plastic taste; Palate: light bodied with no finish; Overall: really wanted to like this but donít understand the appeal. Drain pour.
