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.

On Tap

Players Sports Bar
San Marcos, CA

Hazy light pink with a very small light pink head that leaves lots of stick down the glass.

The aroma is of wheat and mild raspberry. Nothing special, but nothing off-putting.

The flavor is similar to the aroma. A low level of bitterness, wheat and simple grain, and mild raspberry. I think they hit what they were striving for, they just weren't shooting very high.

Thin to medium bodied with high carbonation.

An average, fruity, wheat beer.
