Abita Purple Haze is a wheat lager brewed with real raspberries. Based 30 miles outside of New Orleans, it's a go-to beer during Mardi Gras, or any warm day for a refreshing lightly fruited wheat beer. The fresh fruit is immediately apparent as the raspberry adds a subtle red/purple hue to Purple Haze's light amber color.
At 4.2% ABV, Purple Haze is incredibly sessionable as one can enjoy one after the other without the fruit or alcohol overwhelming the palate. This beer balances tart and fruity raspberry, a soft body and hazy appearance from the wheat, and a crisp finish from lager yeast and light pilsner malts.
The restrained raspberry flavors in this beer makes Purple Haze great for food pairing, like spinach and goat cheese salad with raspberry balsamic vinaigrette, duck a l'Orange, raspberry tart, orange sorbet, mascarpone cheese with fresh berries, and raspberry cheesecake. If you're in the mood for a margarita, try a Purple Haze Margarita! 2 oz. of blanco tequila, ¾ oz. of triple sec, ¾ of lime juice, ¼ of simple syrup, shake with ice, and then top with a few ounces of Purple Haze with a salted rim glass with ice.
