Beer Chat: Abita Strawator

I hardly ever get to go out during the week. Not that I don’t want to though. I just have friends who are either busy or lack spontaneity. So when I FINALLY rolled out to grab a beer a few Mondays ago, I ended up in flavored beer heaven.
To take it back to a previous post, I bragged about Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager and how I really enjoyed the hint of strawberry juice at the finish, but you still know it’s a legit lager. That beer was good, but I found an upgrade on Monday night by the same craft beer company.
Abita Strawator is that version 2.0; a better sequel with a pumped up to 8 percent ABV, but you honestly would have no idea until you get to the bottom of your first glass or midway through your second. It has nearly the same golden/cloudy appearance, and way more natural Louisiana strawberry juice as its predecessor.
My only fear when talking about Strawator is that I may never have another because I know it will sell out at my local beer pub due to its scarcity on draft, and once it’s out of season, well, you know how that goes. I pray it will be around a week later, less than a week later even, but I won’t get my hopes up.
