COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It may sound nuts, but most ales with nutty flavors or aromas are made without any real nuts. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans. The natural oils from the nuts give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma. It’s wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise it’s great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

Pours an amber from a bottle, slightly skunky aroma, flavor somewhat cloying like an amber, but not overly sweet, somewhat bitter, but not from hops, likely from the nuts. Not terribly nutty either. Meh.

Found in the seasonal section of my favorite local distributor, decided it sounded interesting enough to try. Try is all I would want to do with this brew, not bad but no strong points except perhaps the dark gold/amber color. Almost no head, with a little lacing. Aroma is that of a pecan pie being baked. Flavor is lightly sweet with virtually no bitterness. Very light bodied and a bit weak and watery. finishes drags out with notes of fresh pecans.

Real nutty aroma and taste. It definitely has more of a nut flavor which I’m not sure is a good thing.

Partial 12 oz bottle served in a Tulip glass. Aroma is very lightly malty with notes of hay and nuts. Appearance is a clear dark golden to light amber color with a thin white head and some light lacing. Taste is lightly sweet with a touch of bitterness toward finish. This is a light bodied beer with a thin texture with lighter carbonation. Long lightly nutty finish. Overall this is a light flavored beer yet unique and enjoyable.

Maple in color, medium, quickly dissipating head. Nutty aroma as expected. Flavor was thin and watery for something advertising pecans. A bit more turned up in the finish as it warmed...probably a gateway beer for a Sam Smith’s, at best.

Ok so it good but is not a beer that blows you away in anyway but it does have a cool nut flavor. Pour is chestnut in color with a small white head. Aroma very lite but pleasant and nutty. A lite body easy drinker that has little to no hop presence but it does have nuts lol.

Didn't find pecans in this beer, maybe slight notes in aroma . However, not bad ale. Caramel sweetness in taste isn't annoying. Good , though nothing special.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down, some sediment at the bottom. Smell is of toasted malt, toasted nuts, and some slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same but there is a mild burnt bitterness with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall better than expected.
