Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head. Smells of malt and very very light fruit. Tastes of strong raspberries, malt, and sweetness. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a pretty tasty and light fruit beer.

Apart from this being thin and a little watery it's still better than most macros and others rated "3.28/5". I guess the neipa fan boys saw the word haze and expected tropicana-ipa bullshit and rated this lower than it should have been.

Abita's Purple Haze is pretty good. I didn't throw any out.

By far my FAVORITE Abita beer! Not fruity at all in taste, with just a subtle aroma of raspberry. It does not over power, and is very drinkable.
