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.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, hazy, golden color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that almost completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Fruity!! Tons of raspberries in the nose, followed by some subtle malt and wheat, giving off some cereal-like notes. I also get some honey-like sweetness and some very subtle hops.

Taste: Wow!! Tons of raspberries and honey, but not at all overly sweet or cloying. Perfectly balanced with some wheat, malt and hops. This is a delicious raspberry beer!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 4.2%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very, very, good raspberry ale! Great balance between the fruit, some honey-like sweetness, wheat, malt and slightly bitter hops. Delicious! I’m certainly getting a few of these again this coming summer!
