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.

Pours light, slightly darker than straw color. Small bright white head adorns. Aroma is bready malts and a tinge of fruitiness. You get the raspberries on the taste more than the aroma, which adds a slightly sugary sweetness over biscuity wheat. Very light in body, crisp. It's a fruit beer, what can I say. I always drink these last when I get a party pack...
