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.

This is not very good. The flavor is weak, I could barely taste anything. It reminds me of a bud light with an attempt at flavor.

Smells like a pretty ordinary wheat beer with a scent of banana but also a bit of the raspberry. Taste is strong raspberry infused wheat. Other than the raspberry, it's fairly average.

Otherwise a very run of the mill wheat beer, the raspberries add a subtle and pleasant note. Not bad but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, citrus and tart. Taste is kind of fruity and tart. Kind of disappointing.

Poured from the bottle into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a hazy, amber body with a quickly diminishing head of white foam. The aroma is rife with raspberries and wheat. Carbonation was crisp and the mouthfeel was watery. The palate was dry and bland, with none of the raspberry notes coming through. The aroma gave a great deal of promise (where I almost expected a lambic) but was disappointed by the lack of substance this malt beverage provides. Not horrible, but watery and bland.

1st impression not good. Calls itself a malt beverage with raspberry added. 355ml bottle into glass. Slight fruit nose, not bad. Looks great, creamy head, cloudy amber beer. Tastes like good malt with strong clean Raspberry/hop finish. Not amazing but seems very sessionable.

This beer drinks real easy, especially itís the first one of the night. Light wheaty flavor with fruity notes.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a fruit aroma that is not overpowering, fairly inviting. Appearance- the beer is an amber color with an average head Taste-has a muted fruit flavor, but i do not care for the taste of this beer. Palate- this is a thin bodied beer with light carbonation. Overall- I do not care for this at all and I do like fruit beers overall.

People are pretty rough on this one. Reasonably refreshing wheat beer with some tasty sweet raspberry inside. No itís not going to knock your socks off, but itís plenty more drinkable and pleasant than some of the garbage out there pawned off as "complex".
