Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

What I would call a nice after dinner beer. The pour is dark red/purple with an off white head. The smell is full of berries, specifically raspberry. The taste is similar although a little more reserved. Very sweet which made it a bit hard to pair with most food besides deserts though. Overall a very nice beer.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Fairly clear copper colored body with a foamy white head that retains well. Some soapy lines of lacing.

Aroma: Malt sweetness blended with a raspberry puree aroma.

Taste: Very malty and smooth, just enough raspberry notes to make it what it says it is, and thankfully not too cloying.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy.

Overall: Not outstanding, but good by my standards.
