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.

Cool label and the color of the beer in a clear glass it neat, but nothing special about the beer's taste. No raspberry flavor at all.
