bottle thanks to jrob_21! i think this brew is getting a bum rap because of some of the other beers that abita makes. malty sweet aroma, woody and slightly nutty, although i don’t think i would have identified pecan - it’s got more cedar than pecan, and cedar would be a more believable beer flavor than pecan. relatively light-bodied and mildly flavored, a bit of astringency in the finish. interesting, and definitely not bad. certainly worth a shot!

Poured into a pint glass with a medium fizzy off white head. Paler amber color than expected. Aroma of bready malts, nuts and that is about it. Initial taste is a thin watery body with touch of toasted malts. Mid Palate of nuts. finishing with hints of bitter hops. Overall the flavors were very mild. The body is very watery drawing away from this brew. Not a drain pour, but a light start to the night! This would be a good one for my girlfriend. slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle. Sweet nose, lots of caramel with some nuts in the background. Deep mahogany color. A little thin, but works well for the soft nutty flavors. Really enjoyable. Tilley4 (218) - Huron, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2008
My 2nd Abita brew. Really attractive amber pour with a nice head.
Smells exactly like a load of bread. Very yeasty.
Actually tastes better than it smells but still not really impressive. A little sweet but I don’t detect any pecans. Kind of a sharp aftertaste.
Just ok. Not great but not awful either. Skyview (6024) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Received a single 12-oz bottle from oetiii in Antigo, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin film and white ring. Aroma of light multi-grain bread dough, some citrus hops, and some roasted nuts. Taste is light to medium bodied, plenty of carbonation, with flavors of light multi-grain malt, some roasted nuts, and a little citrus bitterness. Finish is slightly watery with a multi-grain malt aftertaste. I’ve had some intense pecan nutty flavor beers before (ie: Bertrams Hazelnut Ale), Abita’s Pecan Harvest is missing the pecan flavor.

Bottle. Pours a bubbly amber with two inches of head. Smells like bread. Tastes like copper and finishes dry. fredjaz (112) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2008
my favorite Abita brew. Nutty, roasty aroma and flavor. Nice bitter dry mouthfeel that you get from eating pecans present in the beer. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Amberish pour with a thin cap. A nice and subtle nose of citrus hops, sweet bready malt and pecan nuttiness. The body is thin and drinkable, with a nice balance of buttery nuts and caramel malt. The hops are secondary, adding a little grass and citrus here and there. I had to drink an entire six pack to get the subtlety of this beer, but the pecans do add a nice touch.

Nice malt, the pecans don’t come across overly strong, a bit of astringency from the nuts detracts. Funknmilla (745) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
12 oz bot....slightly cloudy amber...beige head, that says I’ll see you later....sweet malty aroma, pecans barely show through, more of just general nuts....taste is more mocha than pecan...body is average to watery...the pecans had too much water added to them...a touch of lacing...... I had this beer with pecan pie, and well the pie showed up the beer, no compliments, how sad
