2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 This is a re-rate. It pours a strange golden color with a purple tint to it with a white head. The aroma was grapefruit and raspberry. The taste is fruit and grain. It was pretty refreshing while cold. As it warmed, it became overly bready. Itís an okay summer beer. A six-pack of this was a bit much.

Not as much raspberry as I expected. Ok beer. Would like to see it in a wheat ale.

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!

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. Thereís also less sweetness than I expected. Fairly well balanced. This would be a great beer for sipping outside in the summer. Light and refreshing.

I first tried this beer a few years ago in New Orleans, and thought it was ok....so I bought it recently to try it again. Didnít really do too much for me the second time around. Found it to be like the typical shwaggy domestic beer, wouldnít compare it to any of the microbrews. I only noticed a trace amount of the fruit flavor, as it is added and I donít think actually brewed with in the process. Is this a beer...or a malt beverage, as it has the body and taste similiar to a malt beverage. Kinda like a fruity Mickeys.

Twelve ounce bottle from Abita variety 12 pack purchased at Jeffís Marathon, tasted on April 2, 2015. Hazy amber hue with slight purple (?) color tint, pungent raspberry, unimpressive tart astringent flavor, cheap tasting. Certainly not the best beer from Abita.
