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.

interesting. don't think i'd have another, but i'm glad i gave it a shot.

color - hard to pin down what color this this, a bit like a hefe, with a tinge of pink, but seems a bit murky. hazey. smell is pretty good on the raspberries, seems natural, not something artificial dreamed up by a chemist :)

taste is mild raspberries over lager, a bit too mild for my tastes, but nothing really wrong, imo. mouthfeel is a bit confusing to me, i think i'd like a bit more crispness to enhance the berries. berries come out a bit more as it warms.

worth a try, if only to say you've had something with such an apt name from the 60s.
