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.

One of the few raspberry beers where the fruit does not overwhelm the beer, Purple Haze uses the fruit as an accent to a clean, crisp lager. Perfect for outdoor drinking on a warm spring/mild summer day.

A - An orange-tinted golden hue. Beautiful when held up to the light--almost glows.

S - You can hardly smell the raspberry. The beer just emits a mild, clean aroma.

T - Very clean. The raspberries come through on your tongue, but not overwhelming like most of the other fruit beers out there trying to use this fruit. Very tasty.

I had a sixteen ounce pour of this at the Amsterdam Ale House on Manhattan's Upper West Side. It was part of an Abita promotion that featured a number of other beers as well. I didn't love this but I have had it a number of times.

Appearance was a light gold with maybe a tinge of purple.

Aroma was like a combination of pale ale characteristics with the rasberry.

Flavor was the same. I'm not a big fan of fruit beers so I didn't love this.

A pretty solid beer if you like this sort of thing but be warned that it is pretty fruity.
