Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kbub6f on 10-19-2001

Purple Haze is a crisp, American style wheat beer with raspberry puree added after filtration. Therefore, you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. The raspberries provide the lager with a subtle purple coloration and haze, a fruity aroma, and a tartly sweet taste.

My husband bought me this and I was like UHHHH Thanks I guess grape beer! Well he told me it was raspberry which I love and was still thinking gross sweet syrupy. Nope I was wrong. It was a light raspberry taste, great for summer. Very drinkable. Drank a bunch and now I need more!

For a much better raspberry beer, try Founders Rubaeus (spelling's off, because the "u" has the German umlaut, and the a & e are combined in the old Latin "aesc", but you can find it searching Founders brewery).
