12oz bottle pours a pale copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of fresh raspberries and malt, simple yet pleasent. Taste is very mellow, malt and wheat work well together to incorporate a well balanced raspberry flavor that is not overpowering. A bit of a yogurt flavor and texture. Iím not a huge fan of fruit beers but this one is pretty decent.

ALLOVATE (2687) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2015
Into a snifter chilled. Headless once settled; a hazy peach in colour with intermittent, minute carbonation giving the impression of a still beer. Aroma is strangely more of strawberry conserve than raspberries, with little else coming through. Thin, watery palate with a carbonic acid bite thatís marring. Light raspberry flavour is quite drabby and flows into the swallow. Light wheat, light toothpick linger. Not much here. Bland! (35,5cL, BB 18/11/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

For a fruit accented beer this is a pretty good one. has a strong scent of raspberries the flavor is less obvious, only minor raspberry undertones, with tastes of other fresh fruit and a bit of sweetness. this is light and sweet, refreshing. finishes quickly. There is very little head but an obvious amount of carbonation.

Abitaís Purple Haze is something of a craft classic. Itís got a fairly strong following and is one of the better-known brews made by Abita. Sadly, it and I didnít work well together. Not even the Hendrix-inspired name could win me over. Appearance is okay. Thereís a purple-ish tint and very little head. Aroma reveals cereal malt and raspberry. Same with the flavor. While I can understand why lots of people like this one, it didnít have much for me.

Surprised I havenít rated this before! Most recently drank out of a bottle at the annual DanaFest! Has a lovely fruity aroma with slight maltiness. A wonderful refreshing, crisp taste. A great summertime brew!!
