Abita launches new blueberry beer for summer

ABITA SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) - As strawberry season comes to a close, Abita Brewing Company is launching its newest Harvest Series beer, Blueberry Wheat.

The beer launches June 6 and will be available through September. The beer is made with a combination of pilsner and wheat malts, and hopped with German Perle hops. Louisiana blueberry juice is later added to give it fresh flavor and aroma.

The new flavor was given out to some taste testers in Abita Springs and the results were good. Tasters say, "Abita Blueberry will be my alternate to Strawberry," and "If you love Abita Strawberry you will love Abita Blueberry."
