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.

On tap. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small head. Nothing too special - aroma and tastes of raspberries and wheat. Light and bland tasting. I’ll pass on this in the future.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005 Light yellow coloured with some hazy appearance. Fruity raspberry aroma and flavour. Dry finish.

GT2 (9102) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle. Looks and smells like a pale lager. Aroma is not raspberries, rather is pretty much the same grainy, corn notes typical of macros. Taste is similar plus an addition of artificial raspberry syrup. Very one-sided, boring, unimpressive.

Dogbrick (8971) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Pours a light and murky amber color with a medium off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is raspberries of course, but really nothing else. It might have something to do with the fact that I was building a deck in almost 90 degree temperatures, but I found this to be pretty easy to drink. Light bodied and very crisp, and fortunately the raspberry flavor is not as overwhelming as it is in other beers of this type. Clean finish. Nothing award-winning in my book but a passable summer beer.

crossovert (8497) - Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Sweet flavor, raspberry jam and toast. Kind of medicinal, not a huge fan of this.

3fourths (8394) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Medium amber color, fairly murky due to all the yeast that was at the bottom of the bottle. Swirled the last bit about and poured it in, and the glass ends up with an interesting light brown speckled appearance. The aroma is horrid: very yeasty, but with undertones of Corona and a light raspberry smell. Feels very thin in the mouth, with some pale flavors of fruity cereal... so basically fruit and sugar.

shrubber85 (8323) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle. Sweet raspberry malt aroma - a bit like the sweeter lambic framboise beers. Moderately cloudy - pinkish amber color with small head. Slightly sour, light raspberry malt flavor - really expected it to be sweeter from the aroma. Very little body. Pretty weak and bland.

DocLock (8246) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
Pours light yellow. Slight smell of berries. Tastes of slight berries, yeast, and citrus.

jercraigs (8220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange body, small fast fading had. Tart fruity raspberry aroma. Slightly sweeter raspberry in the flavour, not much else. Average palate. Pleasant but fairly dull. Needs more everything as is often the case with raspberry wheats. Thanks Harry!
