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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Hazy golden color with a fingers worth head. The head is white with a faint purple tint. Very little lacing.

Smell- Wheat grain and raspberry.

Taste- Wheat malt with a tart raspberry flavor.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and crisp. Nice amount of carbonation.

Overall- This is a good raspberry beer. Its not too sweet nor does it have an artificial flavor. Refreshing and very drinkable.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – The brew pours a golden color with the characteristic reddish/purplish hazy tinge. It is quite neat looking. The head formed upon pouring was quite big and billowy with a off white-pinkish color. The head faded fast to leave a light amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was heavy of raspberries and some other lighter fruits. Mixed with the fruit smells was a light wheat. Smells sweet yet refreshing.

Taste – The taste begins with wheat and a lighter raspberry flavor. It starts out lighter in raspberry and grows stronger. The raspberry brings with it some sweetness as the taste advances where it collimates more toward the middle of the taste- but it never gets overly sweet. After that, the wheat and raspberry flavors remain constant were they are end up leaving a rather pleasant and refreshing light raspberry flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a slightly higher carbonation level. Both are very fitting for the wheat and sweet fruit flavors and make for a good refreshing fee.

Overall- Very easy to drink and quite refreshing. A good beer for a nice hot day outside.
