Taste Buds #67 on Beer Tap TV: Purple Haze All In My Brain (Abita Purple Haze)

  • alt

    From The Brewer: Purple Haze is a crisp, American style wheat beer (and a song by Jimmy Hendrix) with raspberry puree added after filtration. Therefore, you may see raspberry pulp in the beer. The raspberries provide the lager with a subtle purple coloration and haze, a fruity aroma, and a tartly sweet taste.

    ABV:  4.2% IBU: 13

    From Us: While Erik isn’t a fan of fruity Beers, Eli is secure enough in his manhood to rise above the stigma of these oft put upon “foofy lala” beers.   Abita’s Raspberry Wheat has just enough raspberry notes to make this a refreshing beer and not a syrupy kick to the head.
