2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: Arrived at the table a dullish toned, reddish-hued body with a fine, white head.
Smell: Aroma provides mild raspberry, light booze, with indeterminate sweet hints. Itís subtle and restrained, like a cat waiting patiently around the corner to pounce on your unsuspecting feets.
Taste: Light upfront, understated touches of pale malts and wheat with a middling sweetness to it. Quickly, it pushes the sweetness a bit more as a taste of ground-up fruit-flavored chewable tablets for poor, sick children takes over the flavor alongside a vein of booziness. TheLibrarianGirl likened it to taking a swig of her plumeria-scented body wash. I can see that, too. Finishes the same.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I really didnít enjoy this one, though, Iíll admit I had some modest hopes for it. If Purple Haze is like the film Troll, this would make Triple Haze Troll 2.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy rose color. Aroma is of raspberries, cherry, malts, and vanilla. Taste is very light. Can pick up some malts, raspberry, wheat, and a slight booziness to it. Leaves a wheat/raspberry aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Avenue Pub: Pours a cloudy purple color with a light head. The nose is big and perfumey with fruit and alcohol. Comes across way sweet and medicinal, nearly undrinkable. Not the best experiment.
