COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Triple Haze is a take off of one of our most popular year round offerings, Purple Haze. It is a strong golden lager made with malted barley and wheat. Despite being strong (8% ABV) it is still light in color. It is hopped with German Perle hops to give the beer a delicate hop flavor. After filtering the beer, a generous amount of fresh raspberry puree is added. Because we use real fruit you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. This gives the beer a tartly sweet taste and aroma, as well as a bright purple color and haze.

Pours a watermelon orange with no head or lacing. Strawberries and other sweet citrus on the nose. Berries, lemon, honey. Medium bodied, crisp. An odd, drinkable lager.

Has a raspberry aroma and flavor with a very slight bitter long finish. A very tasty fruit beer that I enjoyed.

b3shine (5121) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with foamy white head. Smells of raspberries and lager yeast with a bit of sweetness. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Not bad, and drinks easier than an 8% beer.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear orange amber red color. Thin off-white head, dots of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry. Lighter, and more drinkable than you’d expect for an 8% beer. Light tart taste, light bite to it. Good bright refreshing mild raspberry flavor, and some bready malt. Cool strong fruit lager to try for the summer.

Tripplebrew (774) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2014
pours a rose pink - looks much like grapefruit juice with frothy white head. Aroma is fresh raspberries very fresh with mild notes of sugar. Flavor is fresh raspberry, nutty almond and just a hint of tart lemon to off set. Body is light and lceansing with active carbonation to make it light on the mouth.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Draft sample at the 2nd Annual Top of the Hops Charlottesville, VA beer festival, 9/10/11. Pours a hazy pink-orange color with a thin head. Poor head retention. Aroma of banana, berries, bread and a phenolic finish. The taste is citrus, berries and a sugary finish. Medium bodied. A bit too sweet.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Location: Draft at Capital Ale, 9/9/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, raspberries, grains, yeast, and floral hops.
Appearance: Pours a reddish, amber, and slightly purple color with a small head.
Flavor: The taste is rather sweet, lots of raspberry, some light malt, and light bitterness.
Palate: The body is medium, fairly fizzy mouthfeel, and a light booziness.
Overall Impression: This one is rather similar to the Purple Haze, I don’t mean that in a bad way, but you can see and taste the obvious resemblance. It is definitely a sweeter offering then what I tend to enjoy, but I found the sweetness working pretty well in this one. I like what they did here.
