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.

I don't usually like fruity beers especially one's involving raspberries, in fact only apricots are a fruit that I liked in my beer. Purple Haze is a little different. I had it a while ago and still remember the name. I finally found a place that carried it in bottles. The smell is not overwhelming but the taste is perfectly mixed with a beer and raspberries. It's not overbearing and does not leave you with a fowl aftertaste. It's even good at room temperature. Definitely recommend this brew.

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...
