Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company's Jeez Louise and Heirloom Ale and Abita Brewing Company's Louisiana Spiced Ale are new seasonal beers.

Abita Brewing Company (166 Barbee Road, Covington, 985-893-3143; www.abita.com) and Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company (7030 Roscoe Turner Road, Kiln, 228-467-2727; www.lazymagnolia.com) have released seasonal beers that capitalize on current beer trends — session IPA and wild/sour beers — and both added a bit of heat to the brews.

  Abita released two new beers, including Big Easy IPA, the newest addition to its lineup. It's a 4.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) session IPA dry hopped with Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hops, which yield a lighter beer with lots of hop flavor and aroma.

  Abita's new seasonal beer is ready for crawfish season. Louisiana Spiced Ale is meant to mimic the flavors of a crawfish boil and is brewed with Cascade hops for a citrus note and spiced with cayenne, paprika, bay leaves and lemon peel.

  Lazy Magnolia released a spicy ale called Jeez Louise as part of its Back Porch series. It features heat from jalapeno peppers and a tropical hop profile from Citra hops. It has a pale ale base and promises subtle heat with full fruity flavor from the significant hop presence.

  Lazy Magnolia's brewers also created a sour beer called Heirloom Ale. It's an amber ale with lactobacillus added for souring and is aged with pinot noir-soaked oak chips. Heirloom Ale is part of the brewery's Debutante Series, which features barrel-aged beers and other brews that matured for months or years before being released to the public.
