Abita Pecan Harvest

Abita Brewing Co, Abita Springs, Louisiana
Pecan Harvest Ale
5% ABV
12 oz. bottle

Novelty sells. Who wouldn’t be curious to try a beer brewed with real pecans? As weird as it sounds to brew a beer with real nuts, the result is totally boring. I smelled nothing, and tasted more bread and maple than any note of pecan. Add to that that it was overly sweet, and I’ve got a beer that is definitely a so-glad-I-bought-a-single-and-not-a-6-pack.

On the other hand, we felt good downing a few sips of this seasonally appropriate beverage, even if the taste didn’t live up to our Nut Beer imaginings. Fall is here! And now fall is gone.

  1. Edit of last line:
    *Fail* is here!

    Nuts, added clams, salt, plasma. How about beer brewed with beer?

  2. And is that 2 bottles of Hendricks gin in the background, along with a text-heavy Stone Brewing bottle? What about reviewing those liquids?
