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.

Sampled at Stoudts Brewfest. Almost gold color with fair sized head. Aroma is light and sweet banana with faint pepper. Not as much rasberry as I was expecting and that was a good sign. The taste is a bit tart of sour rasberries and light straw. Not disguisting but I wouldn’t want 12 oz of this either.

Looks like cloudy strawberry lemonade with a white head. Strong rasberry aroma with some malt. Flavor is crisp but uninteresting. Thin watered down rasberries and wheat. Very tart. Not much else. Not unpleasant but not pleasant either.

Pours a foamy white head on hazy peach colored body. Strange malty and brewing mashy aroma with some sweet fruity tones. Artificial fruity and malty flavor. Not a lot of flavor and quite uninteresting.

Bottle. Pours a orange yellow, slight red hues slightly hazy. Moderate thin head. Aroma is raspberry and wheat beer and fairly pleasant. Taste fails in my opinion. raspberry flavor is very slight. Malt is thin leading to a watery mouthfeel. I will pass on this beer.

An alright beer. Not bad for the price. Never really had many wheat’s I’d flipped over, but this one isnt’ bad at all. Unfiltered yellow color and body, and a slightly sweet fruity taste. not my thing, but it beats the hell out of but

Don’t like sweet...don’t like wheat...but not aweful...pours yellow with a hint of purple with a decent head...smells very malty with a sweet touch of raspberry...tastes much the same...smells and looks more appealing than it actually is...

I love this beer and I am once again shocked by he overall crtical opinion. A lot of people seem to like heavy beer and bitter beer. Myself I like something refreshing and tasty. While I like astout or a porter as much as anyone I love fruit and Wheat beers. This one the best fruit beers out there, great bottle too. It smells, looks, and tastes great. Not too sweet but enough to really add a great flavor. This is excelent beer and I can tell the fruit used is real (unlike liney) and not fruit flavor.

Pours a two-fingered white head leaving little lace, reddish/amber color. Medium carbonation, light bodied. Slight raspberry nose. Starts with raspberry overtones with the wheat right behind it, very easy to drink. $1.49 for a 12 oz bottle from Liquor Barn, London, KY.

Not a horrible beer, but not a Lambic by far. A drinkable summer beer with not a lot to say for itself.
