Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: EgadBananas on 03-20-2011

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our Triple Haze is a take off of one of our most popular year round offerings, Purple Haze. It is a strong golden lager made with malted barley and wheat. Despite being strong (8% ABV) it is still light in color. It is hopped with German Perle hops to give the beer a delicate hop flavor. After filtering the beer, a generous amount of fresh raspberry puree is added. Because we use real fruit you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. This gives the beer a tartly sweet taste and aroma, as well as a bright purple color and haze.

Pours a hazy, grapefruit color, either a lighter colored head and a bit of lacing.

Aroma is fruity sweet and not much else really. Maybe some b ready notes.

Taste is pretty much the same but sweet er and fruitier, and a hint ofheat.

Feel is creamy smooth, medium in body an nd a hair drying.

drink is ok. Better then regular purple haze, but if likely not seek it out. (380 characters)

On-tap 11/1/2011 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange/amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a lot of raspberries along with light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong tart raspberry flavors that remains dominant. The malt character is light and the hops presence is mild but there is a pretty decent balance for this type of beer. The after-taste is tart and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, decent representation of style, if you like the raspberry flavor this is a decent stronger beer to drink for a while. (841 characters)

Cloudy dark orange/amber pour with a minimal head and medium carbonation. Aroma is lightly fruity. Fairly light bodied. Taste is grainy with a moderate raspberry flavor. Not as sweet as purple haze and far more maltier as there is a good wheat presence. (253 characters)

This brew poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left a tinge of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy orange with mild visible carbonation. On the nose, I got hints of raspberry with some wheat to it. On the taste, I definitely got a decent amount of raspberry, which is to be expected. What I didn’t expect was the bite that went along with it. It was almost like regular Purple Haze with more heat to it from the 8% ABV. The finished lingered with a boozy burn. Honestly, it’s not great. I prefer the regular version. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again. (600 characters)
