Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kbub6f on 10-19-2001

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: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle, with best by date on the neck.

appears hazy golden color with slight purple hue. head is paper white as snow. fruit aroma is subdued -- the raspberry is there, but not massive like a Framboise Lambic.

taste is pale malt, wheat, raspberry. fresh tasting, doesn't taste artificial. medium body, lower carbonation than expected.

overall - a pretty good fruit beer.
