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.

A nice cloudy orange golden with moderate head and retention. Smells and tastes of fruit and wheat. The raspberry is prominent. High amounts of carbonation and a nice feel.

Different but enjoyable.
