Purple Haze

  • SRM Color : 8
  • Brewer: Abita Beer
  • Brewer's 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.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Wheat or Weizen Glass
  • Russ' rating: 6 of 10
  • With the brew: Cheese or Fruit
  • Comments: I first tried Purple Haze in 1996 while on a trip to New Orleans. I have always tried to sample local Beer, Food and Music wherever I have traveled, but no where in the world is that more exciting than The Big Easy. This beer pours quickly, and getting a solid head is a neat trick. The head consists of a medium bubble (0.5mm - 0.7mm) and settles fairly quickly. The aroma right from the pour is sweet and lightly fruity. The color of the Beer is the light golden you would expect from a Wheat Beer, with possibly a ruddy tint from the Raspberries added to the brew. The taste is primarily that of a good Wheat Beer, with an earthy wholesome flavor. The raspberry flavor was pleasant but seemed to dissipate some then the head subsided. The flavor before and after were both very good but left me feeling like I missed out or part of the beers total experience.
