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.

Reviewing this as a raspberry lager. Nice golden color with little head. Smells like slightly sour raspberries. Smooth balanced lager with a good tart tartness from the raspberries. Easy drinker that is exactly what it is labeled.

Not clean enough for a "clean" and not sour enough for a sour. Not my favored beer, yet this has a strong following.

Not bad. Very available and sometime is not as good as others. Be sure to check bottled on date.

Raspberry flavor i could pick up on. My girlfriend could not. I think the beer is great for what it is. Good raspberry flavored wheat beer

The aroma is straightforward with malts, not much else here.

The taste is upfront with the malts. Very light with the raspberries at the finish.

Mouth feel is light, chewy and pleasant.

Overall not a bad brew, i would take it over anything adjunct anyday. However not my typical brew. Low ABV and IBU's, along with a very light almost diet raspberry taste. Glad i tried it but doubt i will purchase again.
