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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Brickwood Grill in Rochester, NY.

Pours a interesting reddish pink, with a some purple and orange tinges. Small half inch fizzy head, with a little bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells like raspberries, grapefruit, and some wheat.

The taste is similar. The raspberry flavor is subtle, wish it was stronger. I taste some grapefruit and lemon, as well as some wheat bitterness. Slight hop bitterness near the end too, I think, but it's quite mild.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel, very drinkable. High carbonation.

Not horrible, but somewhat uninteresting and pedestrian.
