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. Its wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise its great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

jcr (2647) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Clear, dark amber body. Short, off-white head. The nose is grainy and biscuity with notes of caramel and nut. The flavor is moderately sweet and mildly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, slightly sticky, with a mildly bitter and dry finish.

Bottle.Very smooth beer. Light tan head that doesnt last too long. Captures the pecan flavor tremendiously. Very nutty flavor, with all the bitterness of a pecan.

swanmann (750) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 21, 2007
The bottle poured clear copper color with soft tan head. The aroma is heavily malted with mild. Dry with nice pecan bitterness, but I didnt get much pecan flavor. Not bad as a whole though.

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Pours a beautiful amber with a thin quickly dissipating head. Flavor appears to have a nuttiness but of burnt nuts. Aftertaste is terrible. BLAH!

travita (4935) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Amber color with a nice head but it goes quickly. Malty and spiced it feels like it is trying to do something but really ends up not coming up with much at all in the taste area. Very clear.

LAboozehound (47) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Both bottle and tap available here. Delicious pecan flavor, not too sweet but very nutty. One of the better seasonals from Abita.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2007
12oz Bottle: Amber body w/ a small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma & a sweet malty flavor to go w/ it. Slightly bitter finish. Not much going on, nothing more to say here.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a small orange-white head. The aroma was sweet and tangy with an undercurrent of sour nut. The flavor was bitter and tangy with notes of maple and nut. There was a long oily nutty finish but the bitterness overwhelms the nut too much for this beer to be craveable - bonus points for inventiveness though.

mjg74 (3050) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Bottle from BevMo.Medium amber/orange color upon pouring. Malty aroma with some sweet pecan. Crisp beer with a solid malt backbone. A little bit of hoppiness. The pecans round out the beer pretty well, I think.

I love ambers and enjoy experimenting with the variations of the traditional style. Lighter color than expected with a whimsical head. Many flavors make up the complex overall taste of this beer.... possibly too many. Nice nutty small and finish to the sip... hop and malt balance is good but mouthfeel lacks a bit... a bit too thin for all the flavors there. This may contribute to the lack of lingering flavor...
