Draft - I thought this beer was terrible. Had a sort of mouth puckering, over the top, fake sweetness. Could drink about 3 sips.

[Bottle - Johns Market Portland Oregon]
Wow rusty around the rim of the bottle after taking off he cap. Strike one. Next the flavor was like a old shoe and a very off smell from the very first. Strike two. Next the flavor was a weak version of a wheat beer an very little to the raspberry. Not a good beer Stike three. This was a terrible brew. I hope it was just old and not the actual beer. :(

Yes, Iíll add to the heated debate, it has a purple hue. No head and no bubbles. Hard to pick up any aroma - some wheat and tiny hint of rasberry. Light and salty flavor. It lacks two of the three components of beer - malt and hops. The third ingredient, water dominates the flavor, and SOUR at that. Ever swallow water at the beach? Then you know what Purple Haze tastes like. Watery palate. The purple novelty and witty name do not carry this beer very far, leaving a substandard ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow body with a very quickly fading fizzy white head. The aroma is a mix of sweaty grain, wheat, and light raspberry puree. The flavor is pretty low on the fruit with much more of that sweaty sickly wheat than anything. A little yeastiness and an earthy very seedy note on the finish with a lingering mineral note. It reminds me of poor quality wild raspberries where there isnít much juice, but lots of those tiny grainy seeds. Mouthfeel is limp and thin with an excessive amount of prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall, not only is this a bad fruit beer, itís just a bad beer period.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Thin white head that fizzles out quickly. Very faint aroma, with just a bit of breadiness and raspberry. Flavor is equally faint. Mouthfeel is very thin--watery and fizzy. Even if this style is up your alley, there are better examples out there. Can’t really find much to recommend this one.

Bottle. Pours dull yellow with a small white head and a good amount of sediment visible in the beer. Aroma of wheat. Flavor is cereal with a slight amount of wheat. I almost canít taste the raspberry. Tastes more like a macro lager than anything else, as itís a weak beer all around.

Was lucky enough to get this at a popular dancing bar. light fruit sweet aroma of raspberry for sure. the taste was a little tart mixed with some wheat malt. Awesome dry finish and balanced carbonation that makes this a special brew.

Hazy gold, thin white head, medium body, high carbonation.
Aroma: grainy with a bit of musty barnyard funkiness.
Taste: very grainy and thin malt profile. Raspberry is very faint. Wheat is clean and tart.

12 oz bottle from World Market poured into a 16 oz. shaker.
Aroma: Rancid raspberries hide the natural wheat aroma.
Appearance: an unearthly brownish-pink color. Lots of head that disappears quickly.
Taste: Easily the worst part of this beer. Just sweet and fakey tasting.
Palate: The only thing that is the least bit positive - the massive carbonation hides some of the awful.
Overall: Ugh. This is not a beer I will have again.

Bottle. In general, I like a good fruit beer. Unfortunately, this is not one. It has a hint of raspberry flavor but is quickly overpowered by a bad flavor Iím not sure how to describe. I want to say dishwater, but I guess it was kind of like a watered down hefeweizen flavor
