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 amber with a fading head.
Nose shows raspberries and raspberry jam alongside some soft sweet malt. A little artificial seeming.
Flavours include cardboar malt notes, cereal grains and a raspberry lolly character.
Body feels watery, carbonation is much too low.

Honestly, it's not as great as all the hype that was surrounding it when I had it, but it is worth a try and very easy/enjoyable to drink! Smooth, light, quite crisp, refreshing and probably palatable/drinkable to anyone who tries it - i especially appreciate the raspberry puree that was brewed into it.
