It’s like having your favorite summer dessert in a bottle!
With its shimmering golden tone capped by an airy white head, Abita Strawgator is the embodiment of summertime in a glass. The aroma is unmistakably that of strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream and just the slightest hint of spicy fresh hops. Ripe strawberries are foremost in the flavor while pale and wheat malts create nuances of freshly baked muffins―a combination that further mimics our favorite summer dessert. Strawgator’s medium-light body carries the bright fruit through to a clean malt finish that’s sweet but not syrupy. Eight percent alcohol may seem a bit high for a warm weather brew, but Strawgator never comes across as hot or boozy. On the contrary, this is a delightful beer that’s perfectly at home at a midsummer’s brunch or afternoon tea.
Serve in a goblet or flute at 40-45 F.
Suggested Food Pairings: The fruity-fresh flavors of Abita Strawgator are the perfect complement to cheese Danish, cucumber sandwiches, and, of course, Strawberry Shortcake with Hefeweizen Zabaglione.
