BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Triple Haze is a take off of one of our most popular year round offerings, Purple Haze. It is a strong golden lager made with malted barley and wheat. Despite being strong (8% ABV) it is still light in color. It is hopped with German Perle hops to give the beer a delicate hop flavor. After filtering the beer, a generous amount of fresh raspberry puree is added. Because we use real fruit you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. This gives the beer a tartly sweet taste and aroma, as well as a bright purple color and haze.

22 IBU

This brew poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left a tinge of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy orange with mild visible carbonation. On the nose, I got hints of raspberry with some wheat to it. On the taste, I definitely got a decent amount of raspberry, which is to be expected. What I didn’t expect was the bite that went along with it. It was almost like regular Purple Haze with more heat to it from the 8% ABV. The finished lingered with a boozy burn. Honestly, it’s not great. I prefer the regular version. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again.

This is basically like Andygator and Purple Haze. It has the taste of tart and sweet of Purple Haze with the body of Andygator. This was a pretty good beer that I enjoyed.

Enjoyed from the 22 oz bomber in a snifter. This golden lager pours a muddled, cloudy, dark amber with a nice head of white dissipating foam that settles to a thick ring, small pool, and excellent lacing. Nose of raspberries, honey, and subtle grain notes. Flavors lightly exceed the nose with honey and raspberries on all sides with a soft wheat flavor and smoothness that finishes on the back with a lightly tart raspberry and wheat grain note. Smooth and lightly creamy with a dry finish and extremely well hidden alcohol. Nice and ample. Would be perfect in the summer months.

Cheers

Pours a hazy, grapefruit color, either a lighter colored head and a bit of lacing.

Aroma is fruity sweet and not much else really. Maybe some b ready notes.

Taste is pretty much the same but sweet er and fruitier, and a hint ofheat.

Feel is creamy smooth, medium in body an nd a hair drying.

drink is ok. Better then regular purple haze, but if likely not seek it out.

On-tap 11/1/2011 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange/amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a lot of raspberries along with light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong tart raspberry flavors that remains dominant. The malt character is light and the hops presence is mild but there is a pretty decent balance for this type of beer. The after-taste is tart and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, decent representation of style, if you like the raspberry flavor this is a decent stronger beer to drink for a while.

Cloudy dark orange/amber pour with a minimal head and medium carbonation. Aroma is lightly fruity. Fairly light bodied. Taste is grainy with a moderate raspberry flavor. Not as sweet as purple haze and far more maltier as there is a good wheat presence.
