Abita Brewing Company Pecan Harvest Ale
If you are not familiar with Abita beer then please do so now. Every season of the year Abita brews a different harvest beer. One for each season spring, summer, fall, and winter. This particular seasonal harvest ale (fall season) is brewed with pale, Munich biscuit and caramel malts and Willamette hops. Real Louisiana roasted pecans are added in the brewhouse. The Abita brewery uses natural spring water from the Abita Springs. This ale has ABV (alcohol by volume) of 5%. This harvest ale pours a nice orangey amber color. The clean white head fades away quick. This Abita has a nice aroma of fresh pecans with a slight caramel scent. On the first taste, you get a nutty flavor followed by a buttery creamy taste. Aftertaste you'll find it to be creamy and rich almost binging your grandmother's nutty-sweet pecan pie to your mind and a smile. It has a smooth aftertaste, Its good! I love this one, it grew on me and I will buy it again. Abita does a great job with a lot of its beers, I can't say the same for their brewery tour. That's a topic for another post. So grab one now before its gone and share with family friends, and loved ones! Cheers! Please Drink Responsibly!
