Like most flavored beers, this beer has been spat upon over and over, yet once again, Purple Haze does what it’s supposed to (and quite well I must say) It’s a raspberry beer, not a worthless "bitch beer," but I real beer with a great taste, and it has a great look to it, worthy of its name and a lot more respect.

Cloudy orange body with a small head that disappears quickly. Aroma of wheat, bread and raspberries. The flavor is sweet, watery, has raspberries, and finishes with a Brady malt flavor. Weird, but not in a good way.

poured from a bottle. Not an awful beer, since I read the label and was prepared. Small head that dissipated quickly. No purple color. Very slight berry aroma, skunky taste.

It’s kinda bad. They put raspberries in beer. I don’t know what i was thinking buying this. Abita makes decent beers, but this is not one of them.

Not great. Not terrible. I don't like fruit beers, so I don't know why I bought this. It's not too strongly flavored like raspberry, so it's not that noticeable.

Not bad. Fruity wheat beer. Hard to tell exactly what fruit is added. Definitely not my favorite.

From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a tiny head, sweet aroma, a bit like a cider, refreshing with a berry aftertaste.

It pours light golden with a light head. It has a musky smell with raspberries. The taste is that of raspberries with some grass hops. It is smooth on the way down.

Transfer from BA review on 7-19-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – The brew pours a golden color with the characteristic reddish/purplish hazy tinge. It is quite neat looking. The head formed upon pouring was quite big and billowy with a off white-pinkish color. The head faded fast to leave a light amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was heavy of raspberries and some other lighter fruits. Mixed with the fruit smells was a light wheat. Smells sweet yet refreshing. Taste – The taste begins with wheat and a lighter raspberry flavor. It starts out lighter in raspberry and grows stronger. The raspberry brings with it some sweetness as the taste advances where it collimates more toward the middle of the taste- but it never gets overly sweet. After that, the wheat and raspberry flavors remain constant were they are end up leaving a rather pleasant and refreshing light raspberry flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a slightly higher carbonation level. Both are very fitting for the wheat and sweet fruit flavors and make for a good refreshing fee. Overall- Very easy to drink and quite refreshing. A good beer for a nice hot day outside.

Bottle pour. Hazy golden amber with good white head, but fades quickly. Nice lacing. Sweet raspberry aroma. Smooth light body. Taste is raspberry, cranberry, and light grapefruit. Initially sweet but then balances with tart. Not an abundance of depth (probably why many low ratings), but tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
