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 theyre picked and pressed for Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager. The end result is a light, crisp lager with just a hint of strawberry sweetness.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma is very sweet. Smells of strawberries and cream. Poured yellow/gold in color with a medium-sized, creamy, white head that diminished over time. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is very sweet. Tastes of strawberry and corn. Ewww. Light to medium body. Thin, slightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, strawberry finish.

12 oz bottle. Hazy yellow, cloudy, carbonated with little head. Huge strawberry nose. Taste is not as huge as the nose, very carbonated. No hop or malt profile. One is enough.

Pours a cloudy light yellow with a big white head that diminishes leaving a little lacing on the side. Finer carbonation can be seen as well as felt in the tasting. The aroma is pretty much only of strawberry. Flavor is a very well rounded not overpowering strawberry flavor and only a slight watered down malt taste at the start. To me, the flavor of the strawberry is similar to the flavor in the cereal Frankenberry. Overall an interesting beer that isnt annoyingly overdone in the flavor department. I could see having this again maybe once a year but not any more often.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours amber with a white head. Possesses a lot of the fake fruit aroma and taste of their other fruit beers. Crisp finish. Nothing special.

Just the slightest flavor of strawberries; nothing sickeningly sweet such as Leinies Berry Weiss. A good sipping beer on the couch with my girlfriend on a Saturday night.

I bought this for my wife who enjoys fruit flavored beers and I tried it and must admit I liked it. Cloudy yellow pour with the smell of fresh strawberry. Moderate strrawberry taste with good mouthfeel and nice finish. Surprised me.

bottle - The schnozberries taste like schnozberries! I had to say it. Ive written enough reviews where I state the blindingly obvious and Im going to do so again. Yep, this beer smells and tastes of strawberries. It pours slightly hazy yellow with a one finger head. The strawberries arent overpowering, but the beer theyve been added to is quite light so it doesnt take much to dominate the flavor. It has a light body and is fairly refreshing. Not bad.

Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2008
Poured a hazy golden color. The aroma was slightly of kind of sour strawberry. The flavor was malty, and had just a hint of the strawberry. Good carbonation. It wasnt bad... Id have it again.

I normally enjoy an occasional fruit beer, but this on just didnt work for me. It was truly like drinking a strawberry soda, minus the sugar.

This has a great strawberry aroma although it doesnt look as refreshing as it actually is. Its a touch watery I wish it had a little more bite to it. I drank a six pack of these in one evening trying to decide if I lied it or not and ended up half drunk without realizing it. Goes down very easy. I couldnt drink them all the time but for the length of time it is around each year I can see myself drinking a few each year.
