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.

Purple haze is one of my favorite beers. Real fruit flavor and not artificial

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Oct. 11, 2014
Consumed: Oct. 11, 2014
Misc.: Best by Jan. 1, 2015

Poured a grapefruit juice, straw hazy color with one finger of gray lacing. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass in bubbling streams. Poor lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.38)

Smelled grape, dark raspberry, blueberry, black cherry, slight blackberry, wheat grass and grape Sweet Tarts. (Smell - 3.38)

Tasted much better than the smell. Got dark raspberry, blueberry, Smucker’s raspberry jam, black cherry, purple grape, honey wheat, Sweet Tarts and blackberries. (Taste - 3.88)

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long, fruity, refreshing finish. (Feel - 3.75)


For the style this was decent. I’m a sucker for fruity beers. I don’t know where this ranks with the others, but it was OK. I’d have it again. (Overall - 3.75)
