Pours hazy golden peach tone with small white head. Nose is wheat, berries, yeast. Less sweet than expected, the palate is cereal with tart berries, well balanced. The body is somewhat thin. This makes a nice change of pace on a hot day without demanding attention.

It pours a strange purple color with a white head. The aroma was fruity. The taste is fruit and grain. It was pretty refreshing. It’s a good summer beer.

Pours a hazy gold-orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and fruit (berries). Tastes of wheat, malt and raspberries with a bit of hops in the finish-- watery flavour. Thin bodied.

For a fruit beer, the Purple Haze is not overly sweet, but is instead rather dry. Also, by not being a hef, it is a little darker and more substantial than you might expect. Still, very refreshing!

Canned, 355 ml from supermarket in Brooklyn. Pours hazy orange with unclear white head. Fruit aroma. Fruit and wheat in flavor. Sweetish, Can’t say I’ve enjoyed it.

6 oz pour from a refrigerated bottle into a shaker pint. A hint of a head, though not much. Hazy and opaque. Tan to orange. Nose is wheat, yeast, and raspberry. Body is medium-thin. A bit of notable carbonation. Crisp and a bit tart. Strong taste of wheat. The raspberry is much subtler than I expected. There’s also less sweetness than I expected. Fairly well balanced. This would be a great beer for sipping outside in the summer. Light and refreshing.
