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.

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 don’t 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.

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.

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. Pale straw with a billowing off-white head; the aroma mixes grassy hops with some faint floral strawberries; the taste has a honey-like sweetness to start with weak strawberry flavours, then becomes drier and grainy, but fizzles out without any real finish. Not a great combination.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, strawberry, citrus. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flat on if you like beer and strawberry this is it. A perfect summer beer low abv,crisp and refreshing o and strawberry. Pour is much like a witt beer you know hazy and flat yellow with a white head. Aroma is lite and refreshing with enought strawberry to get you going. It taste like it smells crisp,lite and freshing.
