Abita Purple Haze is a crisp, American style wheat beer with fresh raspberries added during secondary fermentation. Subtle coloration, fruity aroma and tartly sweet taste.

Medium brown, thin head - slight aroma of berries. Sourish and light bodied, with an unpleasant bitterness. Disappointing.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Slightly cloudy light brown in color with a slightly retained egg white head. Aroms is pretty macro swillish. Hay and not much in the way of raspberries. Flavor is an improvement upon the aroma. Mild, sweet raspberry flavor with some wheat. The finish, however is rather like cardboard.

DYCSoccer17 (3510) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. This has a pretty straight forward big raspberry aroma that is annoying. Probably the weirdest colored beer Iíve seen. This thing is like a hazy pink/peach color with a small white head. Fake raspberry flavors throughout with a touch of mild maltiness shining through. Quite cloying.

CapFlu (4864) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewing Festival 2004. Pours a mildy-clouded-lemony colour with a quick-dissipating head. I was surprised by the raspberries - they are both sweet yet not artificial tasting. I wasnít overly impressed overall.

I have had 3 raspberry wheats this week; this is not the worst. Good as a refreshing summer brew, but not a strong wheat underpinning. I would have it again, but Iíd try something new first.

This beer tastes to me like some kidís fruit juice. Am I five again? What is with spiking this kidís innocent Juicy Fruit...o, woe is me, let lamentations be cast forth. But it wasnít *that* bad. It was...palatable. It wasnít disgusting or anything - just kind of unexpected for it to taste more like fruit juice than bread products - it also had a very small head if any at all (had it on tap).

Not my cup of tea. I can see how some people would like this beer because it is much beeter than some of the other fruit beers Iíve tried.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Nice cloudy golden orange color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma is wheaty and mildly fruity (Raspberry) with a very mild hop presence and a slight spicey note to it.The taste was much the same as the aroma with the flavor of fruit being a bit on the mild side,hops showing at the end with a slight bitterness.Not bad but definately could use a little work to get it into the upper echelon of Fruit beers.

Had it on tap. I like the color, sort of a cloudy purple and pink color. The wheaty rasberry taste is very subtle but fills in nicely. This isnt a real great beer or anything, but I still enjoyed drinking it.

Semi-hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma is all raspberries. Flavor has raspberry up front and then a wheat taste with a slightly yeasty bitter finish.
