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.

The aroma is straightforward with malts, not much else here.

The taste is upfront with the malts. Very light with the raspberries at the finish.

Mouth feel is light, chewy and pleasant.

Overall not a bad brew, i would take it over anything adjunct anyday. However not my typical brew. Low ABV and IBU's, along with a very light almost diet raspberry taste. Glad i tried it but doubt i will purchase again.

Cool label and the color of the beer in a clear glass it neat, but nothing special about the beer's taste. No raspberry flavor at all.
