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.

Dogbrick (11610) - 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.

Sweet flavor, raspberry jam and toast. Kind of medicinal, not a huge fan of this.

This is a fairly good raspberry beer. Body is nice wtih good balance. Raspberry flavor is evident, but not too crazy. Not bad.

shrubber85 (10760) - 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.

rosenbergh (10658) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. BB 01/11... From a gas station in New Orleans, LA.
Hazy orange amber colour with a small white head. Pilsner malt and mild grassy bitterness in the aroma. Mild sweetness, raspberries... or some other berries and malt in a pilsnery flavour. Not very good or tasty.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Very light, hazy, straw-colored brew. Quickly dissipating, fizzy white head. The nose is of yeast, raspberries, banana and apricot. Lightly floral and interesting. Lightly malty flavor. Tangy with plenty of fresh raspberries and traces of fuzzy fruit. Well-balanced and fairly thin with a touch of honey. Light-bodied with a fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Very refreshing late Summer beer.

djd07 (10522) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy rosey color with a medium frothy white head that diminishes very quickly. Barely got anything on the nose but a faint rasberry. The taste is a weak rasberry with a sweet finish, very watery. This was a weak fruit beer from Abita.
