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.

Nice fruitiness with the raspberry purée added after fermentation; wheaty finish with a nice hazy color

This was the first Abita beer I've had and it's still my first love. Sweet, refreshing, and just an all-around tasty brew. It's great out of the bottle but outstanding on tap!

A nice, clean beer with a hint of raspberry. Good for relaxing on your summer deck.

The bottle and label makes this beer look like some kind of daunting stout but don't be fooled! It pours into a pale honey colored and you can definitely taste the raspberry flavor (little artificial tasting but I enjoyed it).
