I help you move and this is how you thank me?

Abita Beer Purple Haze

Yes, this was a thank you 6-pack. Their heart was in the right place.

The bottle carrier brags about it using a pop top cap, instead of a twisty. Wow, the finest technology that 1892 had to offer.

Label stuff: Purple Haze is a crisp, American style wheat beer with a fresh raspberry purée added after filtration. The result leaves a fruity raspberry presentation in the beer. The premium raspberries provide the lager with a subtle purple coloration and haze, a fruity aroma, acidity and a tarty sweet taste. Each batch is handcrafted using the pristine artesian waters of Abita Springs, Louisiana, resulting in crisp, refreshing...

Review: This is a beer that sounds like a good idea, then you taste it. The raspberry and wheat may be natural, but the combination tastes artificial. If you get it cold enough, it's an ok session beer.

Cost: 9.99 6/pack
Grade: C
Cost Adjusted Grade: D
