Abita’s Purple Haze is something of a craft classic. It’s got a fairly strong following and is one of the better-known brews made by Abita. Sadly, it and I didn’t work well together. Not even the Hendrix-inspired name could win me over. Appearance is okay. There’s a purple-ish tint and very little head. Aroma reveals cereal malt and raspberry. Same with the flavor. While I can understand why lots of people like this one, it didn’t have much for me.

Surprised I haven’t rated this before! Most recently drank out of a bottle at the annual DanaFest! Has a lovely fruity aroma with slight maltiness. A wonderful refreshing, crisp taste. A great summertime brew!!

Dark haze appearance. Aroma is an oddly off, maybe sour fruitiness. Taste has definite berry fruitiness, with some malt. Mouthfeel is juicy, not unpleasant.

amber, red, cloudy, white foam, light sweetness, light body, average carbonation. I liked the raspberry smell and taste to it. Not a strong flavor, but went well with some chocolate. Overall, it’s a good dessert or summer type beer.
